Default Enjoying DKS despite a few issues…

September 24th, 2011, 11:37
I finally started a real playthrough of DKS. Been playing since yesterday, and I'm currently level 7 and finishing up some random quests in Broken Valley.

A very good experience so far, but there are a few things that keep it from being great. I won't go into the gameplay related aspects, as those are subjective, but I'm also experiencing a few technical issues.

First, while the game runs great (most of the time), I'm getting major stuttering during the FMV cutscenes, and the audio constantly cuts out during those scenes. It's not a huge deal since the cutscenes are so infrequent, but it's annoying nonetheless.

Second, I've noticed that some of the NPCs are slightly transparent. It's not overly distracting, but sometimes I'll notice during a conversation that I can actually see through the person I'm talking to.

Finally, although the game runs fine most of the time, sometimes the mouse/camera will suddenly become very laggy, and the only way to fix it is to exit from the game and reload. I'm guessing this is due to a memory leak.

Despite those issues, I'm enjoying it a lot. There are a few (imo) gameplay flaws that keep it from being on the same level as something like Gothic, but I think it's going to be a worthwhile timesink for me.
