AN EPIC ADVENTURE IN A FANTASTIC OPEN WORLD
- Ride your horse, Miya, across the expansive plains of the kingdom and launch powerful sword strikes as you gallop through fields of enemies. Your journey will introduce you to many locations and foes.

ImNoSuperMan's comments:

The IAP in this game works like most other games in that you buy it once, and can always unlock it later using your iTunes account information. Nothing is consumable at all. The game is free to download, but to play any more than the demo you need to pay the normal Gameloft price to access the rest of the game.

For further info and discussion about this hella confusing IAP use this thread instead please. Thanks!

Just get myself a NZ a/c and now waiting...

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

Okay, so the "mini game is very short. A message suddenly popped up advising me to buy the full game and returned me to the main menu. This happened after a couple of fights only.

That left a mini game about keeping little creatures away from your sheep.

So it's basically a demo version with say 15 minutes of free play and then you'd have to purchase the full version.

I think the control is fine and it is smoother than Spiderman on my IPT4, it is kinda strange.

I agree with Square0 on most of the points, but some how I find the attack sector is quite wide and it is directional. Mounted action is great.

I don't mind the RPG-sic games like Zedla on NDS, without stats as such, as long as the game is long and world is large.

Waiting for more impressions.

P.S. Move your hate to IAP elsewehere, please.

I'm sorry for saying this but, why doesn't gameloft just start using Unreal Engine, i know they won't make as much money but more people will buy it and they don't have to spend as much time learning the engine as creating the engine. I'm saying this because most of their new games need a newer device so why not just make the move to Unreal Engine then. I hope Gameloft don't start using this IAP because less people will unlock the full games, or maybe this is one of Gameloft's test to see what new ways they can distribute/make games.

Anyways its finally here - ps is the gameplay/fighting similar to hero of sparta 2 ?

I worry sometimes about buying Gameloft games, cause they often do everything right, but half way through their games, it sometimes feels like something is missing has anyone else had this exp ?
