Raspberry Game of the Year
23 April 2014 | by bobbybitsSee all my reviews

Sadly it has all been done before and much better. However like so many substandard games, that are given great reviews from people who often don't bother playing the entire game. That have been pushed forward, and pre-released, without being fully tested, sync'ed. This is in event of Dark Souls 2. Games such as this blight our cultures, seemingly in their latest trends to rip as many people off as quickly as possible, when selling a 1/4 of the game every few months when endlessly re-patching from their lack of programming and testing prior to release. Instead of dedicating years to the next ground breaking technology. I pity anybody playing this game. PC's do this genre thousand, million, times better. Consoles only often lag when ripping you off. If you are a PC user you will simply avoid this title altogether it is not worth playing.

Without getting into the many numerous specific's. Which would fill this review to 5000 words. This game is so lazily programmed containing so many basic flaws in every part of the game within every single function. AI are ridiculously stupid getting stuck easily or giving free kills from dropping off ledges. Boss encounters for the most part are identical in using the same methods of attack. The UI is so incoherently inconsistent it is painful to use. Sound doesn't always work when it should, or sounds ridiculous when an NPC says two words, when using the A button. Targeting auto changes targets all by itself, and is in range of weapon damage, but absurdly because every attack is evaded from dodge rolling. Blocking when moving the movement stick will sometimes cause no block. Many items, spells that don't functions within their descriptions.

Although ultimately the most pointless experience of any RPG. Having no definition between any the classes played. Who will all level exactly the same way, when having the same options. Attributes gained via levels are false when containing so many flaws. At level 99 some attributes will only see about 49 points of damage more then at level 50. When both are using the same options of gear and weapon. That is because attributes are simply a set of meaningless numbers which often provide no stats at all. This game is programmed around the gear and that gears upgrade, which everybody acquires. Making PVP boring. How do you gain advantage over a player who is using all of the same gear, weapon, spells, as they mostly they are. There is absolutely none higher levels are redundant, providing minimal damage or resistance increases. Except from gameplay the ability to bash buttons quicker. There is also some really cheap items that mean an attributed level of 10 will see only a slight decrease of a level at its maximum when using the same spells.

0 out of 10 This game was never hard unlike the original version. The programming and design stink, creating the worse game ever played
