If anyone is looking for a simple RPG in line with say Baldur's Gate or Champions of Norath or even Diablo, this one is for you.
6 classes to chose from each with their unique skills, weapons and quirks and a HUGE open world map for you to explore. Literally, getting from the northern most part of Ancaria to the southern part would take you close to an hour without a mount. Not to mention the beasties that attack you every step of the way.
Along with that there's literally over a 100 quest that are available to you. None of them are hard at all, with the majority of them going from one point of the map to the other to retrieve/kill/talk and head back. Mundane as it may be, it's also rather addictive as well it helps build up your character's stats.
Don't feel like going at it by yourself? Then this game offers up multiplayer in 2 ways. If you have someone in the house to play with it offers 2 player co-op. Have friends online who also plays it, then you can have up to 4 players running around aimlessly in Ancaria. There's also the ability for some PvP battles as well if you want to see if your level 23 Seraphim can take on a level 25 Inquisitor.
However there are a few bugs/quirks about this game which, while not game breaking, it should be noted because it is very prominent. Firstly, despite the fact the graphics are really great, the frame-rate suffers quite a bit, especially when you are running around a large town/city or when 20 or so beasties come attacking you.
In multiplayer, if playing local co-op, you have to create a second PS3 user account if you want to keep the stats, skills and items your partner obtain. Otherwise the game will always start you off with a level 1 character that won't be much help on the harder regions. You can't trade items on local co-op and sometimes your partner's mount won't show up despite the fact that he already owns one. The game lets you play music that's stored on your PS3's HDD, but if you go online, the feature is blocked for some unknown reason.
Despite the flaws it's a lot of fun to play and would be even more fun playing with someone else. Consider getting a copy today!
