    The real enjoyment came when mixing up the two elements of conversation and combat. The way that the game allows you to make some really difficult choices in how you go about on the island give a real feeling of importance.

    Greedfall has managed to take me back in time to an era for the RPG that I didn’t realise I missed so much.

    Overall, I enjoyed my time playing GreedFall immensely. The setting and lore of the world helped to cement me deep into everything. If you're looking for an in-depth RPG that lets you make choices in a seldom seen world with both muskets and magic, then GreedFall is right up your alley.

    Greedfall is the clearly the best game from Spiders to date with a good freedom given to the player, and a great lore. There are a few hiccups here and there, mainly due to the limited budget, but if you're ready to close your eyes, it's still a nice RPG.

    Greedfall is a huge step forward for Spiders, offering improvements on all levels when compared to their past games. It does fall victim of overreaching with a small budget, having an annoying amount of backtracking and of reused enemies and assets, but it is still an entertaining WRPG in a very interesting setting, full of intrigue and suspense.

    While it's true that GreedFall has some serious problems with variety and bizarrely re-used assets, the story is great and the combat and game systems are quite good. Anyone willing to look past its problems and dig into the narrative will likely have a good time with it.

    Because Greedfall is so cavalier about its colonialist themes, and because it plays it safe by sticking so closely to the template of open-world RPGs, it doesn't really feel revelatory in any way. Instead, it's content to be just another digital playground--just another world filled with magic, riches, secrets, and monsters for players to shoot and loot at will. I did have fun when I got lost in its familiar RPG loop, but its lack of nuance or innovation prevents it from being truly remarkable.

    For a small studio they did a good job on the game. Would have like to see a new game plus but, overall it's a solid game. The game is similarFor a small studio they did a good job on the game. Would have like to see a new game plus but, overall it's a solid game. The game is similar to Mass effect and The witcher. Build a relationship with your team is up to the players and it does have an effect on what events play out. There are some bugs but, are mostly funny to see. Hopefully the studio will do an update to fix some problems and maybe add some more content or make another Greedfall later down the road. Expand

    I'll update this when I get further but so far, it runs amazing and looks even better. The facial animations are a little off but personallyI'll update this when I get further but so far, it runs amazing and looks even better. The facial animations are a little off but personally unless it gets to ME:A levels, they aren't bad and they never get that far. EXTREMELY well optimized too. All highest levels and streaming and my CPU and GPU never went above 40% which is fantastic. Expand

    I'm split between 6.5 and 7 for this game.

    Greedfall is not without its flaws but it stands out as one of the more interesting RPGs to have released in recent memory. For a AA studio that is. Those who compare it to old Bioware games are not far off the mark – the story doesn't re-invent the wheel but it is interesting enough to keep you going and there are different paths and choices you can take during quests. Your decisions bear consequences but nothing immediately obvious or extraordinaire. There are 3 different skill trees (Warrior, Technical, Magic) – Warrior is straightforward, Technical is flashy and Magic is both underwhelming and over-powered.

    The game’s weakest points lie in its combat, animations, vast yet empty world, over-used assets and an ending that was obviously rushed. Facial animations leave a lot to be desired and can be almost compared to ME:A, but it’s not critical if you can overlook such things. I, myself, grew used to them after a while. The world is, too large for what it offers, a poor design choice in all honesty, since a more condensed but meaningful experience could have proven more fruitful in the long run.

    If you’re a detail-oriented player you will notice oddly identical interiors and clones everywhere, this is particularly noticeable when you visit the governors’ manors in each town. Last but not least – the ending. It felt like the devs poured a lot of effort into the beginning and mid sections of the game only to realize they were running out of time and resources to do everything they wanted to. The ending is abrupt, followed by a slideshow depicting your choices and the consequences thereof.

    Overall, it’s not the kind of game that I'd play a second time but I did enjoy my time with it. I consider it Spiders' best title yet. I would play a sequel.

    PS: There is romance in the game, including gay options, but don’t expect it to be meaningful and deep. Although modding is a thing for Greedfall, it's not officially supported since the devs never released the tools for it, nor did they plan to. What exists and can be done, is limited.
