Alright RPG, Golden Box style plus topdown
I didn't really get much about the story told in this game, but from what I could tell it's rather on the classic side, the setting is a medieval fantasy one, and there are dragons and mages, with you in the middle, of course, the savior of the world. So, yeah, not much originality on the front,. But gameplay and mechanics wise this is an interesting game, and it is interesting for a number of reasons. The game is split in a top down portion and another portion that sees you getting the game in first person wise. This is great because it allows you a lot of different play styles, alternatively, never getting bored with any of them However, fighting is done top down, while exploration is mainly done in first person (Golden Box slides wise). Overall, a technically alright game, maybe best consumed by those that have already had their share of the older Dragonlance games; Me? I just hadn't enough of a background to sink into the story, unfortunately, and the medias res setup wasn't that revealing for me.
