Two new Restricted Area previews
Two new Restricted Area previews [ Game -> Preview ]

More info on Person: Jan Beuck | More info on Game: Restricted Area

There are two Restricted Area previews up today. One is a description by one of the developers, Jan Beuck, of the game's character system, which you can read on RPG Codex. The other is a short preview on Gamershell which is surprisingly negative considering it's a preview, and on Gamershell:

Since the game was released in Germany over 5 months ago, I suppose I should assume the game is in a finished state apart from the voice acting and dialogue. That's good and bad, depending on how you look at it. Good, in that I've been proven right yet again: The voice acting and dialogue are definitely nowhere near done, as some of the responses you can give are not only unrelated to what the NPC is talking to you about, they are completely nonsensical as sentences of English. An online translator could do better, and that's really saying something. Bad, in that the rest of the game is rough, lame, and unpolished. It feels like a cheap ripoff of Diablo made by Wizardworks, with lame, basic levels, mind numbing and repetitive action sequences, and a very poor RPG element even more poorly integrated.

Wow. He doesn't hold back.
