IGN gave it an 8.6 and editor's choice award. I hope the game sells well because Piranha Bites deserves it. They make great RPG's for us to play.

You need to be in sneak mode to activate the door.

I never used sneak to activate. All you do is click the picture on the wall in the room and it opens the door.

I broke down and bought the game from gamersgate, they have it for 39.99 and will add new activations if you hit the limit so no need to contact the publisher like steam.

LOL @ pickpocketing a shield...

Reminds me of the days of Baldur's Gate when I pickpocketed an enchanted cloak from someone (right off their back). It allowed me to charm people with almost 100% success so I could steal from anyone in the game, charm them and then leave in peace without having problems with guards.

the game is amazing till u get to chapter III. it gets bad. Chapter IV is even worse. The entire game just simply falls apart. Seems as if the developers either ran out of ideas or wanted to get the game out on time

The end seems to suggest the latter.

Well finished my first run through. Went with the Don path, and I have to say what an EPIC journey.

Took me almost 45 hours and tried to be as thorough as possible.

Starting a new game, trying the other path.
