The thing that I like most about it is the devs said that they coded the engine for tomorrow's systems. That means that it will bring most of today's machines to a craw if you turn all the eye candy up and run it in high rez.

The game reminds me alot of Morrowind in terms of graphics. The environments are quite similar but the character models look better in AC2 than Morrowind.

I've been playing this for a while. Kinda annoying that there arent' any vendors, but it's only a beta so not a big deal. A couple of areas are coded kinda funny, but a reboot of AC2 seems to fix it. I'm also getting around 40 fps @ 1024 X 768 with the eye candy on. Great game. Liked it better than Earth and Beyond.

It seems pretty fun so far. What I don't like or get though:

Frill looks bad and chugs the system. I just turn it off.

It runs pretty nice... it was unplayable on my Geforce, and the Radeon helps quite a bit.

One complaint about performance--it stutters. A lot. When loading areas, it pauses and then loads and then loads some more. They really need to load in an entire zone so it's not so choppy at times.

What's the deal with the blacksmith area? People are crowded around it and I don't know what to do. (It is obviously very important considering there are no merchants and you must make your own weapons )

When you are within range of a blacksmith workshop, it gives you a bonus to succeed when you are crafting weapons or amour.
