Big, fresh new area to explore.
Tons of good loot.
Fun, straightforward storyline.
Topnotch combat with a real punch.
Fantastic, flexible character advancement.
Some great-looking creatures.
Extensive world with tons of stuff to do and lots of monsters to fight.
Deep RPG elements.
Still too easy.
Generic story and characters.
Open world isn't truly open.
Visual style lacks punch.
