Bastard reviews and comments

#Хлеба and spectacle of a Small pot, yes porridge brews to Your attention seems to be the final, of the publicly promised, DLC to Legends of Eisenwald-Bastard! * Always wanted to declare something like This * This is a fresh, original story, with new characters and events, to launch which, attention-no need for an original game. Relying on this, we can say that there is no DLC-a full-fledged addon (as did in the zero), almost independent game. 📑 Since, technically it is still an addon-engine remained the same. With him there were many problems in the past, but visually and gameplay, many already (including myself) have been bored and forget the past scrapes. 🎵 Music in the game has not changed, from which the environment seems familiar and a little nostalgic. Like a business card-you know exactly who is in front of you. Still, the sound team coped perfectly! Musical moods evoke associations with works by composers such as: Howard Leslie Shore (The Lord of the Rings), Paul A. Romero (HoMM). 📢 Dialogues, by tradition, are not voiced and I consider it a strong side. The Text part is perceived like a book/story, and the voice is interpreted by the player's imagination. Not All video games do it, but it happened. 📌 the Important side of the series is the rare-but-high humor and charming curses. Are Perceived very racy and give depth to the world of Eisenwald! Achtung! Serious Soup! The Story leitmotif reveals one of the points of view on the order of things, on the philosophy of being. Radical Enough for everyday life and just as dangerous for the unfastened mind. It is Meaningful, it will never show on TV! Such a product will not become a bestseller. From Here you can see that "Bastard" was created not for profit, but for the sake of the idea. To offer the player to think about the world around him, look at a different angle. A Very rare step in our time. I really appreciate it and respect it as a spectator. Immediately recollect such films as: "Mister Nobody" or "Evening Express" Sunset Limited ". 📌 is Interesting that one of the 3 cults-is available, only at a certain position of the player. With a high probability, you will have to pass the game again to contemplate another final. Changing environment-changing mood Starting from the main: 🔹 Fixed most of the difficult bugs and bugs. And those that have not corrected, were cut out gameplay. Tough, but effective. Compared to the previous "Blood of November" problems as if not! Although, under an hour, there is not enough enthusiasm of the former sieges, but this story is quite different. 🔹 Now You can get the experience for completing quests! What was sorely lacking before. Finally, the main character will be able to get almost all the abilities. PS. Some Perki can not be used in "Bastard", why would they just did not block? That the player did not spend on it precious points of abilities. 🔹 Introduced, so-called, points of authority. They are connected with the plot and are nominal for other events. This is a feature of "Bastard", which organically fit into the gameplay. In Order to continue this, I hope this is an isolated case. 🔹 Available for hiring trawts, healers, etc. proved to be small. And those that were, developed only on a branch of "witches". Tried a new tactic-a squad entirely of soldiers. Victory was hard. With the rest of you, it's all right. Although, the "dark incarnations" of units prevail. 🔹 of the Local legends, which have become traditional, has been greatly improved! ALL events, in some way or another, are concentrated around the narrative. Less "Water"-More business! 🔹 Loading backgrounades with weather animations. Like such a trifle, but sincere "wow", especially under the musical accompaniment! 🔹 Campaign affects more than one card, and it is three to four times more than "Blood of November" Sums up: "Bastard", despite the name (literally), is the most worthy heir of the original game! He is also good at tactical roles, but the plot is stronger than his ambiguous DLC-fellows. Innovations varied gameplay, giving addon features. I Recommend to all fans of the genre TRPG and those who admit that the world is not black-white. Observing the debut of "Aterdux Entertainment", it should be said that all public promises are fulfilled, and the declared DLC released. Problems that arise as soon as they are available are fixed as much as possible. In General, the work has been done faithfully! And I just remain timidly hoping for another addon. Thank you for your attention! Review on Legends of Eisenwald Review at DLC Eisenwald: Blood of November With respect, ℜ ḯchard ᐯ
