Should i give this game a 2nd chance?

24 posts in this topic

I bought this game years ago, played for a couple of hours  and start feeling lost and stuck on sections and didn't know were to go to progress and loan the game to a friend where it still is. Should i get the back the game and start and new playtrought to see if i can enjoy it more nowadays . Maybe i didn't like it that much back in the days cause i wasn't to familiar with RPG and didn't like at all but now i can appreciate some games in the genre like Soul series and Fire Emblem . 

 

So what you guys think anyway? Should i go back to play it and try to finish it or just leave it alone ,not worth the time ad work?

I'm not familiar with the game, but I'd just base your decision off whether you enjoyed your time with the game or at least saw potential in it.

Yes, I would. It's a fantastic little game, and one I currently plan on going back to myself as I never finished it, especially now the DLC is finally on sale xD

The game is a lot of fun, I'd definitely say that you should give it another go.

I agree with everyone else. It was a pretty good game.

Not only this game you should go back to, but most of your unfinished games as well. You are missing a lot of good stuff there.

Also, next time, make a status update. This thread is completely irrelevant to everyone else playing this game but you. In a couple months there will still be people replying to this even though you should have already played as much as you wanted.

I loved it, and will be picking up the DLC in this week's sale and going back for more. So, yes, I'd say give it another shot.

I intend to give this a first go sometime which is a shame as I didn't fancy it when it was free!!! Always put them on the download list is the moral of the story!!

As someone who likes rpgs I probably wouldn't recommend this game.  It did some really fun and interesting things in terms of combat but it quickly became boring and repetitive.  Also the world and characters was some really really dry high fantasy.

Good shout, I have been waiting ages for the dlc to be on sale.

 

Thanks

We might as well not have any Forums since you seem to object to and complain about alot of Forum Posts on here

If i bother you, there is the ignore list for that so you can avoid my name. Google exists for a reason, searching doesn't hurt. This game is old, there is enough information on the Internet already. Opinions from people are biased, people who like will say yes because they liked it, not because they think you will enjoy. This kind of thing should come from a neutral source imo. I was recommended Dragon's Dogma and i hated it. People hated Magus in general and i liked it.

I'm not going to ignore anybody. You're right, Searching doesn't hurt but the OP is only asking people on these Forums if he should give this Game a 2nd chance. There's no point in these Forums existing if you're not allowed to ask a question anymore. If his post bothered you then why respond to it to tell him it's irrelevant?

You seriously want to derail this thread into this personal shit?

Read again, i never said he shouldn't ask, i suggested that using status updates are a better place to ask this kind of question since this thread holds no relevance to the game itself. I'm way more active than you and the forums and I've seen my share of years-old replies that are completely pointless since the TC has already decided if he should play it or not ages before.

I'm curious about how people buy games. I read reviews, watch gameplay, check trophy guide and make my decision which i hardly ever regret. I know one of my best friends just buy anything that is below $5, literally.

Nope, I'm not attempting to derail the Thread, I don't know why you're bothered about that anyway since it shouldn't exist according to you. Also, It's nothing personal. I'm not making any personal attacks or insults. You make a good point about the Status Updates but I really don't know why it bothers you that much. You don't own the Forums so who cares?

The twat in me feels like bookmarking this thread and replying to it in 2017, quoting Yuri. :devil: 

 

On topic:

 

Played it on 360. Had a lot of fun at first, but never saw it through to the end because of other games coming out, so can't speak to the whole game.  

 

I guess that puts me in OP's position too, actually...  :S

 

Anyway, I might add it to the backlog based on the positive responses here and it's dirt cheap at the moment on PSN. Maybe I'll get to it one day.

And what if there are people who give up in the future, and then months later they're checking out the forums and see this thread? A status update would get lost and will never be seen again, this thread could serve as motivation for people in the future....

Maybe it is the case that OP has already bought the game again, but the opinions of someone else months (or even years) later could still be useful for anyone who's looking for opinions on whether to buy the game in the future.

A little late to the party here but you should definitely get back on this! I just platinumed/100%ed this game and had a blast. If you're familiar with or a fan the hack n' slash genre of games, perhaps choosing a class (or "destiny" in terms of the game terminology) that focuses on sword and blade attacks would make this an overall better experience for you. I played the entire game as a Duelist (with most of my build invested in the Might tree) which focused on a combination of sword and short blade combo attacks. It made the game feel like a RPG version of God of War in terms of gameplay.

 

This helped me out a lot going into the game:

I was excited for this game and picked it up on sale about 3 years ago. I started it and got distracted by other things. Came back a few months later and was completely lost, so didn't touch it again until about a week ago. 

 

After starting a brand new character I've now passed the 12 hour mark and I'm having fun. It'd not the most amazing thing ever, but if you want a little more colorful, less serious version of Dragons Dogma this game is pretty good. About feeling lost, that's fine. There are tons of side quests to do and you can literally just wander around, it doesn't really matter what order you do anything.

This game got it's second chance with me once I noticed the STREAKER trophy. ANY game that supports Naked Gaming gets an additional star in the final overall score in my book!
