Default Driftmoon - Review @ RPGCodex

March 2nd, 2013, 08:10
RPGCodex has reviewed Driftmoon noting the good and shortcomings of the game whilst still advising it.
Technically Driftmoon is of excellent quality. Even though the textures are poor and the occasional lack of animations can be a bit jarring, the game looks and sounds good. The engine comes with lightning effects, physics with intractable objects, day and night changes, auto-saves, a journal, and a convenient auto-mapping system with quick travel. I got well over 15 hours of playtime out of the game, with absolutely no bugs or glitches.

The story wasn't a big turn-on for me. It just kind of happens in the background and only becomes dominant in the rather abrupt ending portion of the game. The Fallout-reminiscent ending slides that detail the lives of the characters you have influenced throughout the game highlight how little the importance of the main storyline actually is compared to the minor characters and their quests.
