Just finished it tonight. I'd give it about a 7 or 7.5. It's ok. It's lightweight fun, but nothing memorable.

Positives would be the colorful environments, the visual flair of combat, and some of the humor (though much is sophmoric, and the gnomes are now just annoying a-holes rather than witty).

Negatives would be the ease of combat, the miscellaneous social nonsense (e.g., clothing, dyes, hairstyles, property decoration, gestures, etc.), having to enact silly gestures in order to get XP from villagers, the way the game calculates morality (a few pragmatic decisions to save the whole of Albion turned me into a representative of Satan, despite a long history of good acts), and the lack of meaningful reward for exploration.
