While it starts shaky, Greedfall grows into a comforting and satisfying RPG. It may feel a bit behind the times, but the art design and original story should be given credit and it is good to see this developer releasing something that mostly delivers on its promise.

Greedfall has an ambitious desire to evolve it's genre without the polish to make it stand out; all while neglecting its core gameplay to the point it can't even be seen as competent or fun. I'm sure Greedfall will become a cult hit eventually but for now, it's the gaming worlds equivalent of an early morning T.V. infomercial; trying to sell you an "amazing" product that we all could have lived without despite its inherent usefulness for a problem we didn't know we even had. A real shame too because It really has promise.

Greedfall’s fantasy world doesn’t shy away from brushing up against real history, which makes it a refreshing change of pace in a genre filled with medieval fantasy and space operas. And when it comes to creating the kinds of worlds, plots and characters that make an RPG worth caring about, Greedfall does a remarkable job within its smaller scope.

Thanks to GreedFall's impressively diverse roleplaying and combat systems, it's the sort of game that any sort of RPG fan would enjoy, whether they prefer playing as the tough warrior, the cunning rogue, the wise spellcaster, or any combination of those archetypes they can think of. It may hew closely to the template that BioWare created many years ago, but GreedFall also proves there's still a lot of potential for expansive single-player RPGs that put player choice first.

GreedFall is easily Spiders at its finest, and fans of the Western RPG genre can easily take enjoyment in its well-written and voice acted narrative as well as the solid combat when it comes to gameplay. It's by no means perfect, with a few hiccups here and there, but in GreedFall's case the great far outweighs the bad to carry the torch of a genre that has lacked a decent entry in quite some time. Extremely decent, and a must-play for any fan of the studio.

Greedfall, latest Spiders game, is definitely one of the best action RPGs in recent years. Of course it isn't flawless and perfect, but it's very enjoyable and well-made. Combat is entertaining and great, story is engaging with some nice plot twists, And above all, each faction in the game has many missions to do and unique stories to tell. Every decisions you make in the game, affect your relationship with your companions and factions. Voice actors have done a really graet job and made characters more real. Also quests and level designs are very nice and feel completely connected to story. Of course the game has some weaknesses like technical issues, some bugs or Poor Companion AI during challenging fights, but these issues can't stop you from enjoying Greedfall at all. If you are a fan of fantasy Open-World action Rpgs with high amounts of entertaining quests, deep RPG elements and levelling system, great combat and also engaging multi branches story, then Greedfall is a game you should not miss at all.

GreedFall is an exciting role-playing adventure with dozens of hours, which offers a well developed non-linear main story and side-quests, interesting world, and nice graphics. The game may not have enough budget, come across minor graphics bugs, but the authors try to hide the problem behind a veil of interesting quests and a well-designed world. Creation of Spiders reminds us The Witcher 3, Gothic and Dragon Age: Origins at the same time and can become the most significant role-playing game of this year for fans of the genre.

Some very good RPG elements and great story telling are there to enjoy from, but some annoying issues including technical problems, weak combat system and the game's protagonist character design are also there to ruin your joy.

Greedfall isn't bad by any means and you can tell that Spiders gave it their all this time. However, they weren't able to fulfill their huge ambitions completely. The competition remains superior.

Overall, Greedfall is an amazing game that many will have fun with. While not to say that Greedfall has left a mark in history, it is nevertheless quite the RPG that players can drown themselves in. You will spend hours upon hours in this game grinding your character from the ground up to become take out any opposition and craft your own ending.

Overall, GreedFall is a step in the right direction for Spiders and I hope to see them continue delivering the messages that they do, that they don’t stop being as creative as they are, and venture forth once more unto the breeches of astonishingly well done audiovisual designs.

It is a fine example of what smaller developers like Spiders can offer to complement the other experiences out there. Even with its faults, RPGamers should welcome GreedFall into their personal collections.

Greedfall is a game I want to love. On the surface, this semi-open world, action RPG feels like a patchwork of different ideas and concepts, all of which executed acceptably but never quite brilliantly. With elements of The Witcher, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls and The Council, this politically-charged title gets a lot right but it does so in a manner that's not quite as effective as it should be. With a development team of 35 or so people, Greedfall is an impressive AA title but some constant issues with the combat and environment hold this game back from greatness.

Anyway, Greedfall is an average action RPG offering lots of quests and a competent combat system. While the game's pace is quite slow and the graphics aren't great, there's still lots of hours of gameplay on offer here for genre fans to sink their teeth into.

GreedFall, the new Action-RPG from French studio Spiders, is overly ambitious for its own good, getting bogged down with bugs and poorly implemented ideas.

GreedFall's combat, dialogue, and romance are overshadowed by better RPGs, but it's competent enough to recommend with caveats.

Spiders' latest game succeeds in lifting itself from the terrible mediocrity that enveloped The Techomancer, but it does so with an effort that, although commendable, is still not vigorous enough.

Ultimately Greedfall is an OK game. It is neither good nor bad. It is however the best game Spiders have made to date, and that gives me hope that they do have a great game in them. I just hope they stop trying to emulate and instead try to innovate.

Greedfall is an ambitious RPG with several unique mechanical hooks, character builds and combat encounters that unfortunately buckles under the weight of a bloated and tedious narrative that often turns everything into a repetitive chore

Overly ambitious, GreedFall fails more than it seems to succeed, yet the games heart and Spiders passion shines through, making the game an enjoyable experience.

Unlike most studios in the industry which seem to deliver products that consistently fail to meet expectations and the hype, Spiders seems to manage getting better and better with each subsequent release. GreedFall is one of their better titles, if not the best, but it still falls somewhat short of being a truly great game. With that said, it's by no means bad, and it's certainly ambitious. If you find the subject matter intriguing, consider giving it a shot - it has lots to offer in terms of role-playing and storytelling, but fails in other areas.

I enjoyed my time with GreedFall, but it's already failed to leave a lasting impression on me. Its best moments shine bright and show how much potential Spiders has to develop in this style of RPG, but it isn't cohesive enough to work in concert. GreedFall is certainly worth checking out if you're aching for the old days of BioWare, but it's a tough sell for most others.

It's a shame that a good game is held back by incredibly boring design decisions. I think Greedfall is on the verge of greatness but falls short in too many areas to really go down as a must-play. It's absolutely an enjoyable romp, just one plagued by the thought of what could have been.

A traditional RPG, it would've been much better if it was shorter in length as you'll start to notice a repetitive pattern in monsters, buildings, regions, and characters as you're playing. Despite that, it was an enjoyable experience, a good fit for gamers who enjoy this type of games and can look past its shortcomings.

Greedfall is an ambitious and, at times, enjoyable RPG that makes use of its unique setting to deliver a story full of intrigue and compelling themes. However, its clumsy presentation, slow gameplay and bug-prone nature leave it a game that always feels a few steps away from greatness. Greedfall definitely has its moments, but unfortunately, you’ll have to break through its severely rough exterior to find them.

Greedfall is an enjoyable jaunt, but it follows its influences a little too closely and fails to engage with its narrative themes in any meaningful manner.
