I'm a bit of a video game virgin, but this Spellforce is looking really pretty

A reviewer at Amazon.com:

Love it. It is like reading and playing a fantasy book.
You can move into the play in a first person view and feel like in Dungeon Siege or Gothic 2.
You have a story like Baldurs Gate or Icewind Dale with a lot of carefully created characters. Not the crap like in DS.
You have Realtime Strategy like in W3 and AoM with hundreds of units battleing.
It is epic. You have a huge world consisting of lots of islands connected by portals. Even after finishing one island you can/sometimes must return to old islands and you may find out that the situation has changed.
Playing it for 1 week now and it feels better than all I have had in my hands the last 3 years...

Has anyone heard of it? I know Geoff's all about Dungeon Siege, and this game's being hailed as DS' illicit love child with Warcraft -- will it be as good as I'm hoping it'll be?

Well, have you tried a demo? That would be a good first move.

Me, as something of a video game veteran I couldn't get into the demo simply because it was just too full of fantasy game cliches. It just seemed like very other fantasy game I have played for the last few years. Of course, I still am interested and may perhaps give it another chance.

However, if you haven't seen a thousand fantasy games I think it has the potential to be a really fun game.
