Today i'm writing a short review of a video game my girlfriend currently plays. I went through it a few years ago. It's a good action RPG developed by Lionhead Studios (remember Black&White?) with a lot of fights, decisions, different skills and a straight-line plot.
You start as a little boy in your hometown on the birthday of your sister. Just when you gave her your birthday present, the whole town is raided by bandits. Youself get rescued by a mighty wizard called Maze. He takes you to the Heroes' Guild, where you start to practice swordplay, archery and your willpower (for casting spells) to avenge your family.
There are also funny RPG elements in this game. You can buy houses, extinguish whole towns, marry women, gamble, show around your trophies, fish, dig for treasures and get new hair styles/beard styles and tattoos.
I can hardly find anything that's not beautiful in this game, so it's definitely worth a recommendation. Due to the fact that there are already part 2 and 3 released, this game isn't expensive. Too bad i haven't got a XBOX360, i need to play 2 and 3 as well.
