I picked it up over the weekend and have been enjoying it. There are some progression/balance issues, much like the speed stat already mentioned, an herbs issue (it is better to not pull herbs until you skill is L30), and some class progression/balance issues. The story is fairly straightforward and basic thus far, and the voice acting is passable, but even still I find myself pushing forward. If you enjoyed combat in the early CRPGs, like the Wizardry series, then you'll probably enjoy this.
If you are playing, don't underestimate the power of Blessings. They can make a difference in a difficult fight.
