IMG Reviews Geneforge 2
12:44 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
Today, IMG explores the world of Geneforge 2, Spiderweb Software's latest role-playing game that combines fantasy and science fiction to create a world that's reminiscent of the pen-and-paper RPG Gamma World ó without all of that pesky radiation. Here is an excerpt from the review:
Itís a throwback to the glory days of RPGs, when players had to dedicate a serious amount of time to picking at NPC brains, and not because they'd just splashed gray matter all over their new cloaks. The game's designers have made it so that player responses to other characters and in-game choices affect what people think of them. The stand-offish guard may be more approachable once a player's proven herself a proven and capable Shaper, while more subversive elements may open up once word gets around that the player is not towing the party line. Further, the more points a player puts into the leadership skill, the more likely NPCs are to open up to them or to join them in a quest. Reputation and leadership combine to invigorate what would otherwise be a merry-go-round of dialogue boxes.To find out more about Geneforge 2, read the rest of the review linked below.
