I liked it, will buy it when it gets lowered in price probably. It was pretty glitchy though, in my hour and a half or so it froze twice and cutscenes randomly lost their voices and skipped the whole convo. And water dissapeared sometimes too. dissapointing

Its a big fable rip off with elder scrolls elements lol.

The demo is bugged up alot too.
The ground kept disappearing and chests were stuck in walls after I came into a different area.

meh.

Spark sums up my experience. I did like what I played but it will need fixing before I go out and buy it.

I enjoyed the demo and other than some polishing that needs done it's a pretty good game. No glitches or bugs on my end so far. Certainly not GOTY material but it is certainly better than that pile of steaming shit Daggerdale.
Some things it could use:
Buttons map-able to the mouse thumb buttons.
GUI that isn't so damn boring. Throw up a background or something ffs.
Slightly more accurate auto-target for magic.
More graphics options, I want some damn AA.
Better menu system, what do you mean I cant sort my items?
Opening music that's less cliche.
When crafting it should tell me the level needed for the crafted item BEFORE I CRAFT IT. Major rage bait.
Console pricing for this game on PC? For a game of this caliber, so far, no way... $50 maybe but normally I'd wait for a sale down to say $40 or less. Well, if I wasn't such a huge fanboy and used my usual judgement that would be the case. Already Pre-ordered.

The first video is only 2 minutes and 10 seconds, another 30 second short until character creation, another 40 second clip until you name yourself and then another 1 minute and 20 second clip before you can play. So less than five minutes of video before you play, not bad for an rpg. As a comparison skyrim is nearly 4 minutes and 20 seconds until you name your character and nearly seven and a half minutes until you can run around, let alone how long it takes to get to the first weapons.

And I agree it does play much like fable but I found fable's universe horribly boring. High fantasy is where it's at

I was really looking forward to the demo. The PC impressions listed above were spot on except I was more upset about the PC controls than he was....which suck. The camera was making me nauseous, it hurt my eyeballs as my character kept veering off center, very far in some cases.

Fable ripoff, huh? Sorry, it's not THAT shitty and boring. Hopefully they'll have some time to polish this turd up a bit though and separate it completely from Fable's lackluster world.

I found the demo to be really fun, I had no problems controlling the camera in a fight, but that's just me, and to you complaining about the glitches I heard the demo is not the same code as the official game, and of coarse the actually game will be more polished.
And if you think the combat is bad in this game I find it to be much more satisfying than Skyrim's spam the right trigger combat like seriously I don't see how people put hundreds of hours into that game and not lose their mind and wanting to kill them self.

You are a bunch of *bleep*ing retards! The game's combat was flawless and better than any action focused game's combat. The voice acting was great, and the RPG mechanics were perfect! The only problems I had were when some of the audio tuned out for a long time like music and voices . Also the ground didn't always load in properly, but a bit of polishing could fix that up easily.

I had as much fun with this demo as I would in Skyrim. I'd say they're equals!

I have to say the Demo is awful on the PC , there is nothing in the universe I hate more then games ported over from consoles.Did not spend a fortune on a high end CPU to have everything dumbed down for the masses and forced down my throat.Entire interface is god awful, combat has no feel. Would think something that RA Salvatore was involved in would be very story driven and Todd Macfarlane would make incredibly great artwork.It is so sad that games all start with the look at the map and go there stuff here is all the info ,nothing to think about or solve. The whole WoW/Console mentality has ruined gaming for anyone with half a brain.How tough is it to follow arrows that point to where,what, why and how ? Don't get me started on the camera or abiltiy to map nothing.All you people saying the Demo was 3 month old content need to buy a clue,you couldn't fix the issues I have with this game in 3 years and a complete rewrite of code.Might be time to retire from gaming.
