Visually it looks really good, although the animation leaves alot to be desired. The writing seems a little loose as well. Either way I am very interested to see how this turns out. Love the pirating theme, even if the main character is going undercover

visuals are very nice, but why does these germanic land made rpgs slack so much behind jpanese rpgs? looks at dragon's dogma combat animations... makes this look atrocious.

Yes...graphics are nice, but its all like....hmmm....like early version. For example...where is music? :-) Maybe its just turned off, but without music in the background there are a lot of "empty" moments. :-o Also the voice acting is not one of the best. Still it can be a nice game.

Mixed bag TBH, some of the visuals looks stunning, others looks quite rough, animations are clunky and voice acting is average, still be getting it of course as I'm a huge Gothic fan, just disappointed there's no bows and arrows (yes I know it doesn't really fit the current period).

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not sure if they've improved much these days. (39 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A lot of Japanese made games were guilty of that whenever voice acting become possible. I mean, aye, it was always cheese, but you tolerated it more back then (39 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The voice acting was always regarded as pure cheese. (41 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, and the voice acting, something which back then, was great. Today it's just pure cheese. Sound design is often neglected to be mentioned over visuals when talking about progress in games. (42 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This is what Shenmue combat looks like. It's not heavily based on QTE despite the game making QTE a buzzword: [url] (42 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah a lot of it was very clunky. It did often boil down to QTE's to resolve "disputes" and chases, if I recall correctly. Mad how a lot of games to this day still do that. (43 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still one of the better parts of the game. And it's not a bad game, but it's definitely a "good for its time" game.. which means.. maybe not actually good :D (44 minutes ago)
