This game reeks of a budget version of the newer X-Com games. It plays, looks, and acts just like them. it's still designed well, the classes are all unique and none outweigh the other in anything other than personal taste. It looks nice, and the story is decent. That being said, if you're not on a huge budget, there are many better games like it. Get Shadowrun or X-Com.

Take what everyone has said and blend it together to get an accurate description of the game. It is short, it is fun at times, hack and slash type of gameplay. I would not say its rage quit worthy and if it is that easy to shoo a gamer away, you should question if you are even a true gamer. For a discounted price, it is not a bad pick up just dont expect to be playing for too long.
Decent but depend on gamer taste.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | See all Furrek's reviews »
It's a game from same people that made Avencast: Rise of the Mage. While I liked Avencast, Greed: Black Border is a little worse. The most important part and also the worst in this game are movements. Moving and fighting are really bad, it will make you angry most of the time you will met any enemies. This alone reason is why you might want to stay away from this game BUT if you aren't scared of that, then give it a try. It's a little bit like Space Siege or Space Hack. You shouldn't expect something amazing but if you are forgiving player, then maybe you will enjoy it.

I bought this game as an impulse buy! Not expecting much especially with its $5 price tag. I have to say I am very impressed. It has everything you could want from an arpg. The sci-fi setting also gives it a nice change of pace from fantasy dominated arpg market. Drop the $5 on this, it's worth it.
