First gameplay session begins. So far I am having a bit of trouble getting a handle on the mechanics but that will change with time, I am sure. First impressions: the voice acting is horrible, like worse than Two Worlds horrible. Not even robotic, just bad. The rhythm and pronunciation, as well as the accents are god-awful. Characters don't even sound consistent with their nationalities half of the time. That's okay though, less time wasted watching ridiculous cut scenes! I never cared about the story to begin with, it is a sandbox action game anyway. I can tell that there is a LOT of room for exploration though, so that should add to the amount of hours anyone gets out of the title.
I became acquainted with two of the factions, and met the black market merchant. He sounds like Sam Elliot doing a bad Johnny Cash impression. As long as there is plenty of 'splodey-boom all will be well.
