What is bizarre with it ? :confused:

Well, I don't mean in a bad way, Alrik. What I was trying to convey was the high fantasy touch mixed with the basic dungeon crawling along with the humor, which as we know doesn't always translate as intended. The feel of the game is very character oriented, and takes it out of the hack n slash fest category, for me anyway, but it isn't quite a traditional rpg either. The graphics are not sleek, but quirky--( a bit eccentric) and some of the features, like carrying bottles of dwarven ale, beer, wine and only being able to figure out what they do by drinking them, etc, all makes for a game that doesn't easily fall into a labelled category.

So, compared to a run of the mill action rpg type of game, it stands out the way a good street corner musician stands out from a recording on the radio. It has more of a personality, and that's a good thing.

Plus it has very solid gameplay, and is just a lot of fun. Sometimes anymore, that is pretty bizarre!
