Other Than the amount of time it takes to load different places, The Game is really awesome. It's one of the first RPG's I played and i was really impressed. The Graphics are Very Realistic, and the way Creatures react to different situations are life like.
Being able to pick the Guild you want is great, because you can then chose how the story plays out. Picking a guild means different tasks and Missions then what you would get in the other guilds.

Make sure before you start get the latest updates for your video and sound card's if you don't be prepared for plenty of crashes. On the bright side the graphic's are good and the diolouge is good. I personally went through the game 4 times before I moved on t...
