Murmillos are broken and op. Late game they are just stupid. they block nearly every hit, if you dont hit them they hit you back for a good bit of damage, shield bash does 600ish damage which just becomes unbearable. Not to mention they heal themselves the entire damage of a limb. So if you don't destroy it it heals up. Murmillo + The ones with net = you lose. I am playing them at a much lower level like 46 vs 62 but even then i hope you don't expect me to grind that hard just to make it easy, and if you do make it atleast easier to grind. Gonna have to atleast rate it 4/5 just because their still are some issues.

Nice game definitely. The biggest problem I have with the game though is that the skill tree seems really sloppy to me. You've got an increase dexterity skill, a double attack skill, and an increased chance to dodge skill all in different branches. It seems to me those three things should be part of the same branch. I also don't really like how dexterity and speed have nothing to do with each other. It's okay that they're separate, but the fact that they don't go hand-in-hand bothers me. You've got a separate dexterity-based branch and speed-based branch and they're not even next to each other.
You can probably tell I like the rogue play-style. I just really don't like how I can't effectively dual-wield, have high dexterity, and dodge effectively at the same time, at least not early on. Aside from those things, the combat system is really nice. If you reorganize the skill tree (there are some other things that seem out of place) it would be much better. I'm going to give this 4/5 the way it is now. The reason I'm not giving a 4.5 or a 5 is mainly because of the skill tree.

This is a fun game except for one thing. I cannot save my progress. I did sign up for the gamesafe account but that still hasn't resolved the issue. That's a shame because I do enjoy playing but losing all the data kind of killed it for me. Worse I tried again and after logging into gamesafe I could no longer battle because it would simply freeze on a black screen.

The game is good when it works. I like the turn based system. It gives you time to think about your strategy. The artwork is pretty well done and I like the different types of weapons and armor I have seen so far.

Berzerk, please,please fix this. i've taken a good amount of my spare time on this game, and today i logged on and lost all my progress. please fix this. Also, make it possible to get metals by playing the game, add killmoves when you choose blood in the menu that pops up when you win, and more charcter customization. ill give at 3.5 because i lost my progress, but otherwise, 5 stars
