Huge world, inspired by Germanic tales
While Quest for Glory 2 - Trial By Fire is an RPG, it's one that really puts a high value on lore, on storytelling. I loved the entire series for that love of detail when it came to lore, to introducing real mythos into the fabric of the game, without, though, renouncing its auctorial right to create its own little mythology. Not that this is a game for letters students, but, at any rate, it sure is more prone to looking at our own world's myths and legends, than to create new ones, out of thin air, and just make do with less quality storytelling. But, of course, that's only part of why you'll love the title, the second portion is made up of really well put together RPG bits, as the fighting system is beefy, allowing you to pick from 4 classes and, also, the story as well as the play itself can be very different, depending on these choices. Also, a sweet little addition you'll love, especially if you play the games in order, is the character import option, that will allow you to play your new game with a character that you've already invested into. Play it, in fact, play the entire series it's an outstanding oldie RPG series that had managed to undeservedly be overlooked, though it sure is more than a proper one.
