Can't find it on the web. But you know what? I am sitting here with the review and a nice glass of white wine. Let me translate the summary box for you. I am doing rather quickly, but you'll get the point.

("+" means that the aspect is positive, "-" negative, "?" uncertain since they didn't test the final version)


Graphics:
+ good character expressions
+ beautiful landscapes
+ good lighting
+ some good animations
- some poor animations
8/10

Sounds:
+ fitting soundtrack
+ nice sound effects
+ well acted cutscenes and dialogues
- some effects too monotone
9/10

Balance:
+ with the right weapon, every enemy can be defeated
+ 3 difficulty settings
+ including one for newbies
- someitmes too easy
9/10

Atmosphere:
+ fascinating story
+ atmospheric locations
? will there be more diverse interiors and character models?
? will AI-glitches be fixed?

Controls:
+ easy to learn keyboard controls
+ clearly laid out menus
- quickbar too small
? will the camera be improved?

Scale:
+ diverse quests
+ appropriate length
- little replay value due to lack of different character classes
8/10

+ no "gather X amount of Y" quests
- gets weaker towards the end
9/10

Characters:
+ useful combat skills
+ magic system fits the story

- levelling system too simple for pros
8/10

Combat:
+ enjoyable action-combat
+ different weapons required for different enemies
+ useful special skills
- can become monotonous
9/10

Items:
+ useful items
+ upgradable "shadow blade"
