IN WHICH OUR INTREPID HERO MUST…
Undertake an epic journey to unite a kingdom divided by civil war and lead an army against a swarm of invading demons.
WHAT MAKES IT GREAT:
Just as they did in their superb SF-themed Mass Effect franchise and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, the developers at BioWare present a rich and morally shaded world, where certain decisions can have a ripple effect that will alter course of the game. (It’s a big world, too — players can choose to begin their quest from six different origin stories.) Clever writing and solid voice acting more than make up for the sometimes less-than-impressive graphics.
DID YOU KNOW?
The paintings of Frank Frazetta and the Song of Fire and Ice novels by George R.R. Martin were major influences on the look and tone of the game.
