Hard to be a God - Review @ GamesRadar

by Magerette, 2008-04-21 16:55:33

GamesRadar has a brief review up for Akella's and Burut's RPG Hard to be a God,  giving it a score of 5/10:

 The game’s ambition deserves respect. The story, somewhat usurped by Assassin’s Creed, follows a spy in a traditional medieval fantasy fiction world who gains access to futuristic technology, thus becoming a bit like a god to the locals. With its reasonably fresh idea, and the pleasingly esoteric title, we really wanted to forgive HtbaG its amateurish presentation.

But try as we might, it’s just rubbish. The storytelling is a mess from the beginning. No hint of the larger story is given, no introduction, just the hoariest of RPG quests...When a game makes you alternate between screaming and laughing out loud at its faults, the rewards aren’t worth the struggle.
