Good Action Role Playing!
Have just played 8 hours (out of the advertised 300 hours) so you can't really call this a review. :)
First of all, the game is LESS BUGGY than the recently released Demo (I personally haven't come across any bugs, but I haven't play more and I'm near the same towns/areas as the demo, so have to explore more).
I'm playing this using my XBOX 360 Gamepad (yes, on a PC, inb4 PC Gaming Master Race, etc). The combat is more-or-less a button masher, but even though it may look lame that pressing different buttons changes your weapons/switch from magic INSTANTLY, it's FUN and the visual effects are pretty good (kind of like them JRPGs, more on that later).
Graphics look like Fable; Role Play Elements (Alchemy/Crafting/Quests/Inventory/etc) are like Elder Scrolls games... There is a "Dialogue wheel" like Mass Effect series, which helps you make Good/Evil decisions (Kill Him/Pardon Him/Extort Money).
Side Quests are OKAY. Story is a bit weird, but I suppose it'll do since many RPGs have crap stories anyway (I mean, even Skyrim if you've completed the Main Quest).
So It's "Fable+Elder Scrolls" meets "Legend of Zelda". Gameplay is good, Graphics are passable, Environment is Good, Combat is good. Overall, it's a GOOD game. Well worth the money since you'll be playing it hundreds of hours.
