The main problem with this game is that it looks unfinished, rushed and occasionally unbalanced. Add some bad programming and you're guaranteed to get bad scores from the reviews as is GR's D, even though the review itself didn't sound that bad.
Yes, combat can be frustrating, less RAM - bigger loading times and more lag, ridiculous dying screams that the main character makes are good examples why this game sucks. That's why it deserves all the bad critic it has got so far. But, as strange it may seem, despite all of the technical problems, I still find it much more interesting and atmospheric than Oblivion ever was
. Excellent music, no useless skills and classes - only one main character that you can develop, great sense of exploration. Even though combat is very raw and simplistic, there''s still a certain tension in killing those disgusting ceeatures because you don't know how it's going to end.
Since I saw the first screenshots about a year ago it looked like a very promising title but unfortunately something went wrong - apparently developers ran out of time and the publisher was just too tired of endless waiting.
Not an A, and not as high-quality to deserve a B either, so to me, C+ sounds fair enough.
