I'm unimpressed with the gameplay and the graphics engine. I'm told that the storyline is one of the best in the industry, but the cut scenes that use the graphics engine are singularly unimpressive.

Call me old fashioned, but I like prerendered cutscenes. Never really got behind in-engine cutscenes.

I played it for about an hour and I was pretty meh on it, the setting was pretty interesting but otherwise I didn't really care for it.

It's nice that almost all the quests are repeatable, but it looks like they are repeatable more than a day apart. What's the point? You will have leveled way past them in that time, if you devote a decent amount of time to the game.

That and I kept getting distracted by the terrible way the hands and eyes looked and how the lips barely moved when in cut scenes.
