What I didn’t like about Balrum (and in Eschalon series) was the turn based combat system. Don’t get me wrong. I love turn based combat. But with party control and action points. From what I saw from Balrum’s presentation, there’s only one player and you can only move one square in a time. There’s no action points, just like Eschalon. Lack of these really kills the tactical aspect of the combat, and honestly it’s no different than WoW style MMO combat. So the player thinks (at least me), what’s the point of turn based then.

I hope other role playing aspects of the game will be strong enough to save the game.
