I really love this game so much.. The story is just amazing, the setting and atmosphere is even more amazing.. Hell, I know a lot of people hate it, but I even loved the combat.
To anyone thinking about buying this I really recommend you to do so, you won't be disappointed.
Despite some people, I love combat system, as well. It wasn't perfect, but it had its own goods on it.
As for game itself, yeah, it is must-play for most RPG lovers. It has one of the best stories, which late RPGs forgot to develop...
I just loved everything, I find it so inspired in every aspect.
I wonder why people complain about the combat, I found it to be very engaging and immersive, and fun. Plus, the animations gave it a great feel, imo.
With the FCR mod I gets even better, so real, just like in the books.
