Anyone who likes those cRPG with the little numbers floating above your characters head letting you know that the deathwhirl spell did +43dmg -2+4 Str +17-5  will enjoy playing drakensang, if thats not enough then you got the talent trees 4 pages of them to take care off. 

I picked up Drakensang for $30 new on TM. Drakensang The River of Time (2009) is a German made single player rpg where the developers Ive read went broke cause of an online coy? Whats an online coy? While searching on the net for a walk through for a puzzle I got in the ruins & I couldn't be buggered calculating.. okay it was too hard! I stumbled upon Drakensang online a free to play browser game maybe that's the online coy? 

Anyway Drakensang is a gem and probably didn't do to well at the time cause we were all playing Dragon Age Origins and we English folks didn't get the game till 2010. Its similar to Dragon Age just not as pretty but imo I'm enjoying this game more than I did playing DA.

Average online review scores 8/10

Pros
Nicely detailed world to roam in, up to 4 players in your group, plenty of ingame cut scenes. Talent trees! Plenty of character classes to choose from see below. There is an expansion as well.  It really does matter how you spend your points. 

Cons
English voice overs are abit cheesy. Fighting is dice throws - click on spell wait for 2-3 seconds get out your geek specs cause those calulations are running in the background then watch the outcome- think of Neverwinter nights 1 gameplay.
Start can be slow I was just about put off by the start but once your out of the town Nadoret the game kicks in and gets really good.    Game came with no manual, not even a pdf on the dvd.
