    Keneth - thanks for this review. It looks intriguing and I was getting antsy for something different to play. I am assuming that if my now ancient (in computer terms) laptop can run PoE it can run this - you have any knowledge on that front?


    You might want to submit this as a resource on the site.

    Seeing as it uses the same Unity-based engine, I'm assuming that being able to run PoE would mean the same for Tyranny. Some of the areas can be fairly intensive for the graphics card (massive dust storms and other post-processing effects), but your can probably reduce the graphics settings to something more manageable at the cost of presentation.

    What would be the point of making this a resource? I suppose it could increase the visibility a bit, though I don't really see many people trolling the resource section for reviews.

    Mainly because the game does not have a forum, so someone looking for a review of a game without a forum is, IMO, more likely to check the resource section than the Playground section. YMMV.

    I suspect that the general talk about it being a short game combined with it not having seen any significant discounts yet is hurting sales numbers. I'll probably pick it up whenever I can get it for around $25 - $30.

    Thanks for the review.

    My first run was over 40 hours, so I wouldn't call that short in any way. Subsequent runs can probably be completed in half that time (unless you're going for triple crown solo), but since you can have a considerably different experience each time, I would say there's at least 60 hours of distinct experiences to be had. I can't imagine that anyone whining about game length did anything more than rush through it once, skipping the majority of dialogue and other texts. But by those standards, any game is short. I used to do a BG2 run in ~6 hours.

    As for discounts, they've just given out 50% off coupons to PoE2 backers, so it's probably gonna be a little longer before those big discounts are given to the general public as well. I think they priced it a little high to begin with, but that's likely got more to do with Paradox, who are rapidly losing my trust, than with Obsidian.

    I guess I'll copy paste the review to the resource section later. Can't hurt.

    I can convert the thread into a resource. Would probably be a good idea to have a separate Game Reviews section there for such content.

    Well, there's a Review tag, but I suppose you could make a separate section. Could also add Tyranny to the games list.
