There are the kiddies who will look at this game and dismiss it because it doesn't have the latest high end 3D graphics, but they are clueless,

Old enough to have played and enjoyed the Gold Box games, and I thought this was fairly crap, tbh. Horrible interface (why can't I run? Why doesn't clicking on a creature out of range bring me in range?), the same tired old classes, thoroughly unoriginal mechanics, looks, um, "inspired" by Geneforge/Avernum as well. Think I'll pass. Old school RPGs died out for a reason. This doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as the Ultima series.

The game is turn based. Every move you make is a turn.

the same tired old classes

Any character can acquire and develop any skill, there are no classes.

The reason being people have become too simple minded, and action oriented to enjoy deep CRPGs.

hello all... downloading the demo now. When I looked at the screenshots, I immediately thought of Ultima Online (which I spent many an hour playing). Are they using the UO engine in this game?

Just curious.... thanks!!
