Gorath is 100% right but it goes beyond that.

I have a German Royal edition (a visiting work associate from Germany brought it out for me) and it just won't break through IMO. I've literally only played about 2 hours (too many other things on) but the English dialogue is simply horrific and the gameworld seems to lack creative vision - or alternatively the cohesion of something like Gothic. I spent 10 minutes trying to get a character appearance I liked and couldn't get anything other than a cross-eyed Slavic.

I admit I have almost no game time up and perhaps the rest of it will handily overcome the shortcomings for a great game but I can't see the big editors being hooked in the early stages to wait and see that — if it even exists. I have my doubts.

It will come off as a poor-man's Euro Oblivion and fall way short. Again, I'm not saying that is the truth of it but that's my early impression and I think they will go with that.
