How did I miss this game when it was released? I've never played anything like it, because I missed the Baldur's Gate series and other similar games. It's like a mix of standard RPGs, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Age of Empires (I feel like the combat is similar anyway...).
I'm cruising along with this, and I'm loving every minute of it. I don't feel overwhelmed by the mechanics, I'm getting my ass kicked by bad guys (at least by those I have no business facing yet), and I don't feel overpowered or underpowered. My crew is great, I'm enjoying the characters I created, and the quests are fun.
Did anyone else play this? Is anyone currently playing?
