GameShark has posted a new review of Spiderweb Software's Nethergate: Resurrection. The updated recreation of the original Nethergate RPG, Resurrection allows players to take the side of either Romans or Celts in a battle for control of the mystical Shadowvale. GameShark gave N:R a letter grade of B.
From the review:
If you follow the main quests without getting bogged down in side quests, the game doesnít feel too long, but you wonít be nearly high enough level to take them on. So you will find yourself scouring the countryside for easy things to do. Maybe pillage a peaceful goblin village. Or play letter carrier for a hermit. Save a lot though, because you donít know how easy or hard a side quest is until youíve reloaded for the fourth time. Just because you killed giant lizards by the bucket in one location doesnít mean you are ready for to take on a herd.The full review is available from the site linked below.
GameShark: Nethergate Resurrection Review
But the side quests are interesting, each firmly rooted in the mythos of the setting and there are enough of them to always give you something to do or some place to look for. The outdoor quests are a little devoid of flavor since they are revealed entirely in dialog, but some (like the selkie and giant spider quests) are full of humanity (if thatís the right word for seal people and arachnids). Nethergate doesnít have the overarching moral message that Geneforge managed to communicate, but it is a series of good adventures strung together.
