Okay here is my report, because I know you are all waiting for it with great anticipation so I will not hold you in suspense any longer.

The game shows it's console roots clearly. However I wouldn't call it consolitis because there are no elements of consolitis that really bother me a lot. The one thing that shows a smidget of consolitis is the loading. They are quick on my system but I think too frequent from what I have seen in the demo. I just think that it's done because of the xbox360 lower amount of system memory. However since like I said they are quick it's not overly annoying. However I think they could have done better if this was a PC game through and through.

I ran all gui options jacked up to maximum at 1280x1024 and the graphics are very decent. The textures aren't high res but the cartoonish look works well. I like the way it looks.

Sound is good and I really like the voice work. The controls are tight even with mouse and keyboard. Also I'm glad they made a configuration front end program for re-mapping buttons

I wouldn't call the gameplay very deep, but nevertheless is fun. I especially liked the environmental interaction where launching a fireball at some wheat burned all the halflings dead. The game has a good sense of humor and is refreshing because its unique. I like it. Demo gives you the beginning of the game it seems with the built in tutorial.
