Solid, entertaining RPG.
Unique combat system.
Fun combat and alchemy design.
Long and fulfilling campaign.
Enveloping, sweeping storyline.
Decent voice acting.
Plenty of subquests that donít lead you too far from the main story.
Massive skill tree.
Dialogs can get a bit weird.
Feels a bit linear at times.
Minuscule customization options.
Some quest bugs.
Long and frequent load times.
Not enough NPC models.
Some stability issues pre-patch.
Some side quests are generic.
Adult theme boils down to cartoon nudity and a bit of swearing.
Needs a pretty big investment of time to reap the rewards.
Voice acting dire in places.
Overly complex character.
Skill and inventory screens.
