REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

What do these ratings mean?

serious people BEWARE!!
this game is a game that concentrates not fully on the main storyline but more on everything surounding it.
Then i dont mean the insane minigames that grant you to much money.
Nor the fact that you can have bed party's with more than you and your lover.
Or any of these fun facts that already make the game a must have.
I talk about details and change : the world looks wonderfull and people dont always look the same and give u that damn same reaction everytime u do something to them
for example :
 person A might be angry at you for an expression or act
Person B on the other hand finds it amusing
Person C couldnt care less
and person D in his wrong ways(or right) starts loving you for it and even gives u a gift

or how some people look on you when you have money and when you dont
the evil and good scales also play their part here in the same line of actions as in the example
enough about that then and on to the music wich is wondrous as it can be it gives the game that litle extra that u expect it to have
the enviroment looks rather nice to but its still not that much roamable as one might hope
the producer must be a hippie cuz eating meat makes you evil and bad and the only real good surrogate apears to be cellery (bon appetit...)

back to the storyline
you start of as either boy or girl and help your sister and yourself to make money for a whish box u find a dog and he follows u around everywhere even helping you on one occasion then u buy the box but it apears a rip off and u feel very sorry foryourselves and go to bed only to be wakend by the castles official and brought there after a misworked experiment the owner of the castle shoots you sister and throws you out of the window whereafter u wake up in a gypsy caravan and later start of in a gypsy camp you... one of the last remaining heroes

ingame you can also have a wife (or several) have sex protected or unprotected
though here the producer seems a birthcontrol freak and every time you have unprotected sex you end up with a child

but the game isnt perfect everywhere
the storyline is shorter than it ought to be
making money is as simple as getting your corruption or evil lvl up wich in this case also goes together for example

one can go blacksmithing and end up making over 1000G a sword then buy properties put rent and shop prices up very high then raid the village for not being able to keep up with your prices and then have it refill slowly overtime
though on the other hand being good and pure is as hard  as trying to hook up with someone in your friends online game

some areas are there but never again used after having been there once for example the gypsie camp or the old guild hall/cavern... thing (wich has rather much shifted position since fable 1

the online feature is nice and in no way puts in for a - on the ranking of the game

all in all id say

+ great influence on the economy
+ and people
+ and enviroment
- sometimes killing the game
+/- making money is to easy but can be great fun
+/- being evil is also way to easy but to can be more fun then good
- bartending woodcutting and blacksmithing are all the same
+ good voice acting
- you can be 100 % good and 100% corrupt at the same time or 100% evil and 100% pure


i may have missed out on some points here but the game is just great and if i missed a feature here or there well... be happy u found it and that i didnt ruin your whole finding out what there is ingame
