The game opens with a lavishly-produced cgi movie depicting the fall from grace of a character named Modo. Exiled to Earth from a magical realm, Modo is supposed to live out the rest of his days as a mortal; however this is not to be. Angered by his plight, Modo chooses to attempt to regain his lost power and destroy the world in the process. So far so cliché, but the big twist in the story comes with the inclusion of a Bioware-style morality tree. You can choose to become powerful and stop the plight of the world, or alternatively you can take a darker path and assist your would-be nemesis in the destruction. Your appearance in-game alters as a result of your chosen route; with some suitably evil looking attire and character-morphing if you choose the dark side.
