I admit, strategy game is not my strong point. But the pause is there because most average players can't look out for that many characters at the same time.

The graphics are bad actually and it's unoptimized... But it's not that bad... At least the game is somewhat fun.

It's sad that a lot of people base graphics on games nowadays... A true a game is a game with a awesome story line!!!

yes, i agree, but if they are going to charge a premium price. They should provide both.

I can accept a game that sells for $10 to $20 that lacks the graphics of a AAA title, or the game isnt as complex as some others, but if you are going to charge $60 for a game, i damn well better get everything and a bag of chips, graphics,gameplay,story, they better all be top notch.

I play lots of small indie rpgs and such. Eschalon book 1 and 2 are fantastic games, and well worth their money. Numen: contest of heros is another well priced rpg.

You didn't start like that. You either did it in the middle of a playthrough, or started on after you beat it.

Ive' beaten the game multiple times and now nightmare is easy.

But calling people "bad" for not pausing is just plain rude. Seriously, just because you spend more time on video games than other people, which is why you are better, does not give you any right at all to say that others suck.

well i know i am late to this thread but i wanted to jump in. graphics are fine, but the game just sucks imo. i have just now tried it for the 3rd time and i just cant get into it. i really like the story but the gameplay is terrible. i am honestly considering cheats just so i can plos through the game so see the story in action. so far i am about 6 hours into it and its just really really boring in the combat, feels like a really bad version of DAoC

Everyone can say how much they want to have this games babies, it wasn't that good at all IMO.
Same here. So many people said "DUDE! DAO IS FREAKIN AWESOME!!!! Get it it's better than ME2!!!!" Um..... no it's not. I liked ME2 WAY better than DAO. And similarly to you, I played it for a few hours, and don't much care to pick it up again.
Bah, there's $30 down the drain I could've spent on something that I'd actually play.

Heh. I picked up the game today for $19.99 at Target. Well, I kind of felt the same. I mean, it doesn't look BAD in my opinion, but I expected a lot more I guess. I haven't gotten very far but I have heard so many great things about this game that I can't put it back on the shelf just yet.

Same issue for me. Thought it looked fine for DX9, and seemed like a fairly cool game in general, but couldn't get into the combat ... too much 'real-time thinking' for an old man like me ... Oblivion is about as 'RPG' as I really like to get ... or Diablo-style like Dungeon Siege or Titan Quest or Diablo 3 (I can't wait!). I also like some turn-based stuff like HoMM or actually King's Bounty remake series is fun too ... it's on sale hella cheap on Steam right now too.

I thought it was a decent enough game, but the graphics are fairly dated. I mean, it's still using some form of the aurora engine, right? There's only so much you can do with 8 year old tech.
