I never beat the first game. Furthest I get is clearing the mines then I end up rerolling another character.
I decided to just try the expansion last night and I couldn't stop playing. I think I played for 6 hours straight and had to force myself to go to bed.
It's a lot more theam parkish than the main game, meaning that you can't just wander off to anywhere you please. But the Devs made it hardly noticable with good story flow. It actually makes you stay focused on the game. But the
"narrow path" isn't that
narrow. You still have plenty to explore without accidentally wandering off to the moon... shiney things distract me easily.
I've just cleared the dwarven mines and so far, i'm loving the puzzles. I like to explore entire areas and trying to figure out what I'm supposed to do with stuff.
I have noticed one bug and it can be sort of game breaking, the Gem bag refilling after you empty it. It was full, and I couldn't add gems to it, but it was also refilling with the contents that were in there after I transfered them to my backback... I think I made 40k gold before I figured out that if you open the bag in the vendor window and sell everything the stuff doesn't respawn.
The voice actors are good except one. Dirk (I think) sounds like Bird Man from Rick and Morty. Very robotic sounding NPC. Doesn't sound natural at all.
Those are my only two complaints. I'm loving this game and I'm actually going to go back ans finish the first game now because of it.
