Solid 6. Its definitely more interesting than good, but in spite of the awful controls, horrific combat, and total lack of any sort of guidance, I didnt hate it. I needed maps and save states to get through it but I didnt have a bad time. The game is pretty painful at first but once you acquire more gear and unlock that healing spell, it picks up drastically. Way too cryptic, you will NEED a walkthrough to understand what you need to do. There is also an insane amount of backtracking which is not fun with the slow movement and shitty in game maps. I never went back for most of the items that become obtainable later because I just didnt want to bother. There is also no indication that you need certain stats to properly use some weapons, including the one you need to beat the game. The game has a lot of unlockable spells but you probably wont see most of them on a casual playthrough unfortunately. In spite of all the issues, the game has great atmosphere, music, environments, and level design plus has many elements that would later be refined in the Souls series. Im glad I played it, but Im probably not touching it again.
