    Can anyone say how it plays/what it's like? I've heard it's like dragon age 2, and I've only played a tiny amount of origins, and a small amount of knights of the old republic. Is it like these games?

    I've been thinking about this for ages but I've got so many RPGs to get through.

    I wish I had more time to play games...

    This is similar to kotor with a baldurs gate kinda theme with an action oriented battle system. Excellent game in my opinion worth your three doll hairs, worth it at seven too.

    Honestly, and I'm probably alone in this, but I found the game to be kind of clunky and overall mediocre. It wasn't bad, I just didn't like it very much. Maybe that was just because I hadn't played it before. I'm sure I'll eventually try it out again. For 2.99 it should be worth the money for everyone. (I did buy it before any updates were realesed so it might have changed a lot for the better)

    You're probably not. The trailer was abysmal and I won't bite without a 'lite' version to try first.

    This is a killer deal. I'd buy for sure if I didn't have such a huge backlog of games. I actually have fairly low expectations for this game which means I'd probably love it!
