I’m invested enough in the way Greedfall’s fantasy world doesn’t shy away from brushing up against real history, its well-paced writing, and endearing characters to happily continue trucking through it, despite some of its technical shortcomings.

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.

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, 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 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.

The RPG systems at play here are so robust and deep that RPG fans simply shouldn’t miss out on the game, even if the combat feels a bit clunky at times, the voyage to Teer Fradee was well worth it for me in the end. Keep in mind that this game from Spiders Interactive costs a bit less than your standard AAA title, so it is definitely a bargain with the amount of content it provides.

GreedFall certainly left me wanting more; while its story may be a bit shallow in places, it’s still got a lot of depth, a fluid, intuitive combat system and enough morally-grey missions to bring me back to Teer Fradee some time soon. Forget waiting for the next Dragon Age, GreedFall is an impressive debut for what could well become a classic series.

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.

Greedfall is a highly ambitious step for Spiders, and one that shows that they are hitting their stride. With excellent voice acting and gorgeous environments, Greedfall serves as a grand adventure in a genre that is sorely needing a fresh face. There are still some bugs to crush, but once those are gone, only a memorable RPG capable of filling the open world RPG void will remain.

GreedFall punches way above its weight thanks to some excellent writing, surprisingly in-depth RPG mechanics, a strong presentation and plenty of interesting quest lines. Whilst it's a little rough around the edges in areas such as the undeniably poor lip syncing and occasional bugs, this is still a fantastic RPG. GreedFall is well worth the asking price - RPG fans will find a lot to love here.

GreedFall is a welcome arrival in the fantasy RPG space, a space that has been bafflingly uncrowded of late. But it doesn't just impress because of a lack of alternatives. It successfully delivers nearly everything that one would want to see in a game of this genre, and does so in convincing fashion. Fans of western role playing games who have lamented the absence of many true contenders in the genre this generation, prepare yourselves: a new heir to the legacy of BioWare is here at last.

GreedFall might finally be the game that puts its studio's name among some of the best RPG makers of current day. Sure, there are still technical issues and the combat system could use more polish, but the general concept is applied so masterfully that one can hardly hide their enjoyment of this colonial era concoction of story, world design and RPG.

Greedfall has an ambitious story, but it's not backed up by the clearly repeated environments, simple combat and dull abilities that take ages to unlock. Seasoned RPG players might well be able able to look past those flaws in favour of the interesting, well written stories about political manoeuvres and oppression that make up the bulk of the quests in this pretty dark, deep world.

Greedfall is not an RPG that is intended to play the leading roles of the genre. Limited as well by its technique, its fights and its relatively remote progression, although intriguing and therefore fascinating, the title still has a beautiful soul, shaped by its universe, its artistic direction, its writing, its themes, its music . So many attractive arguments that counterbalance its weaknesses, making Greedfall a game that can not be recommended to the greatest number but deserves attention to at least judge the effect of its charms.

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.
