I did a really silly thing today. That I thought I'd share with you.
I bought Morrowind: Elder Scrolls III. I know, I know, NEVER buy a game without downloading the demo first. But Morrowind doesn't have a demo! Now I know why!
The game controls are DREADFUL! They are the worst I've ever encounted in a game. You have to move your character with the keyboard for God's sake, no mouse control! This may have been bearable (as in Gothic) but for what little mouse control there actually was. The mouse is used to sweep the camera around, up, down, here, there and everywhere. I've never been motion sick in my life, but this game had me dizzy and sick after a few minutes.
If it is one thing I passionately HATE more than anything else in 'computer' games, it's having to control your character with the keyboard. A computer is not a bloody playstation! Give me mouse control like <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> and Diablo.
But that's not the worst of it. Crash, crash, crash! If you thought Divinity was buggy, you ain't seen nothin yet. After the fifth crash within only 10 minutes of gameplay, I packed it back up in its box and returned it to the store for a refund.
Never again, will I buy a game without a demo.
Sorry for the rant, but this game really infuriated me. It has so much promise and potential, it's heartbreaking to see it ruined by shockingly bad game controls and instability.
So just be warned if your thinking about buying this game, it has some very serious flaws. Ok, now that's off my chest, I'm done now.
