I haven't had a chance to download it off steam yet but I hear nothing but good things about it. Would you say it's worth full retail price?

I would say thats what other say and what I say .

I kind of think its worth buying now , but not if you are in the shit with money or cant spare the cash . I have no problems waiting for games to go down in price , but if you are good on money get it now

I've watched a bit of a playthrough on it and even the guy playing it made this comparison

whos playthrough ?


The Orcs walk around and do independent stuff ( fighting , catching slaves  , have conversations , events ) around the world , Just walking around you end up in funny and cool situations , the conversations are funny . This along with the combat system is
pretty much like the batman game .  AI is pretty smart too .

You get missions to kill orc leaders and other kinds of missions to free slaves and so on . But the orc leaders also level up and kill eachother while you play the game so it gets pretty interesting where you can crash a duel betwen 2 orc leaders and kill both , or help a weaker one kill the stronger . Crashing recruitment meetings , issuing death threats to orcs and so on .

The climbing buildings , stealth and assassinations are kind of like AC , but I think they are abit better

Voice acting is damn good too and varied . The random orc generator with Armour and name ,voice is cool too

Basically you can get killed on a mission by some random orc , this orc then gets a promotion and on his own without any real interaction with him he can rise up in the army and become a warlord .

So far so good. The nemesis system is pretty awesome. This one bowman motherfucker keeps escaping me and talking crazy shit and it almost makes me real world mad. The combat is very Arkham-esque, as everybody knows, but it's not as hard it feels like. Arkham's combat wasn't exactly difficult, but you had to figure out the rhythm. This game there's no rhythm.

I get so stuck on this game. Some of the captain fights get so ridiculously one sided, 1v10 and more keep coming.

It's fun man. It's a solid game but I did lose interest after a few weeks. I usually only play stuff that has really high replay ability, where you aren't just running through the game again doing the same stuff, so I don't know if a few weeks is standard or not. I didn't finish it, because it got really repetitive, but it's still a lot of fun and a really good game.

My girl's sister/niece/friends were all visiting for the past 4 days, so I got plenty of play time in, and I totally hear you on losing interest. When I get a new game, I binge so hard, but this game, while fun/cool I would only play for 60-90 minutes before getting burned out. It's fun, and I will play it again, but it's not really the most engrossing game.

Don't regret buying it, but will probably try to trade it in towards Far Cry 4 when it drops
