I was thinking about buying this game, but I bought The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion instead. I think Oblivion may be a better game though.

For anyone interested, there's a demo out that covers nearly the entire first chapter of the game. It's quite long.

This game is amazing. A friend showed me the intro and the first level. Wow is the only word that could describe it.

You should get royalty payments - you did a better job of marketing this game than they did.

Definitely interested in trying this one, but I really want to try and get the European version, due to the better "content" than the US version.

There are quite a few unusually stacked peasant women.

Another classic example of us Americans losing out because - SHOCK HORROR! THERE ARE BOOBIES!!
I believe I speak for all Americans when I say that the people who rule that no game can have any adult content whatsoever can go fornicate themselves with an iron stick.

Oi, if that's not an invitation to start a rant. Indulge me. Suffice it to say, I'm all for the rating system but I'm opposed to censorship, if that makes sense. The whole "I may not like what you have to say, but you can at least say it" deal. Or put in your games, in this case. Personally, I'd like to see more M or AO rated games, but that's just me, because, well, I'm an *adult.* What I don't like are people blaming the industry because of the content. If you don't want your kid shooting hookers and playing with "hot coffee" then don't buy them GTA in the first place. I'm all for people making informed decisions about what they let their kids be exposed to, but if it's just general ignorace, it makes me want to smack them on the back of the head sometimes. "OMG, my son is playing a game where he runs people over in cars! And has sex with women!" And who *let* him get that game? Personally, if the average consumer out there were just the slightest bit more intelligent, I don't think we'd have to worry about which version of the game got released. (And you're talking to a 7 year retail veteran, so by 'average consumer' I mean people that are generally not going to be found on the I-mockery forums...)

I'm actually playing this game right now, and I can definitley recommend it to all of you. Combat is fun, so is the character and potions system.(how could you forget to mention potions in the review?!) I don't think the voice acting is too horrible, but yea, there are some akward moments, and I wish they hadn't used the same voice actors for so many different people. Graphics are cool, and with the new patch the loading times go much faster, when before they were just plain torture. So yea, It's a fun game, and if you're not offended by swearing, drugs, violence and sex, buy it.

I've heard so much good and bad about this game that I wasn't sure whether or not to even bother downloading the demo, but after reading this review, I'm pretty sure I'll at least give it a shot. Amusingly enough, I daresay you're the only reviewer to draw attention to the demo's existence, and I know you're the only one I've seen make note of the lengthiness of the demo itself.

sigh..

Ok, fine, fine. But Yahtzee Croshaw's review still steered me away from this game. There, no link, no muss, no foul?
