Good points. I agree. Just a shame a follow up (sequel) never was done. I'll admit it would be a tough act to follow though, this game is a PS2 masterpiece. Save anywhere, all the cool weapons, the little surprises (like the chicken I got to buy from Berek the blacksmith once) It only happened once, it was literally a chicken I bought that you could use as a mele weapon. You had to scroll all the way to the end of his inventory and there it was. The damage was ridiculously high-- like 21 or something and the price was only like $10 gold or some such low price. I laughed my ass off. This game is terrifically fun.
