DraSa: TRoT - PS - Review @ GameBanshee

by Dhruin, 2011-12-19 07:41:02

GameBanshee let us know they have a review of Drakensang 2: Phileasson's Secret, the easily overlooked expansion for The River of Time. The result is mixed and here's a sample from the article penned by Brother None:

The Dark Eye pen and paper players will probably get more out of the setting because they come in with the right questions, such as “how can this town even exist at this time?”, whereas new players don't automatically get the same sense, and the add-on doesn't do a great job setting up the location and its importance, or the importance of what the player is doing. Gradually it becomes clear that you have a part to play in the struggle against the Nameless One, but at the same time not everything is what it seems, both in people's allegiances, motivations and the nature of the setting. The problem is that while the plot is interesting, it seems somewhat incidental, largely delivered in dialog chunks at the start and end of each trip back to Tie'Shianna. This is less than ideal to keep the player's attention, and doesn't feel particularly rewarding or interactive, which ruins what could potentially have been a pretty good story.
