Yep, this game is an actual book. You read the story, make choices based on the skills that you chose when beinning the journey. And combat is resloved in a very detailed 3D real time-turn based way(meaning there is a time limit for your turn, so you have to think fast). As I already said, there are choices to be made, so the game has some replayability value. As for other technicalities and gameplay features. There are weapons, both melee and ranged. You have Kai powers(buffs, healing, telekinesis), and Sommerswerd with devastating attacks that cost a lot of Kai energy(spells also use it). You can upgrade your equipment, buy and find new one. Every part of your equipment has durability, so you need to watch it and repair your stuff. Did I mention it's a book? So... You spend most of the time reading, making some choices, traveling across the map. All the time you listen to very atmospheric music. There are unlockable galleries(with artworks and 3D models), as well as some trivia(or I should say a lot of)describing Lone Wolf's world, creatures, characters, religion, etc, etc. Joe Dever's Lone Wolf is a very refreshing experience, and for those who know the original, paper(yes, there is such a thing as paper books folks!)Lone Wolf books, it can be a sentimental journey into Dever's creations.
When I was a kid I used to read the Lone Wolf books. Well, "read" is not the correct word for this. The truth is that those books were like single player roleplaying games. You had to manage an inventory, weapons, skills and you had to make choices. And today it's possible to do the exact same thing in the Lone Wolf video game. It's the same experience as before except that now the game goes with nice graphics and musics. Like in the book version, you must make choices to progress and a mistake can lead you to your death. The combat are turn-based with QTE to make during the attacks and the defensive moves. It’s still pretty tactical while being more comfortable than the original game. The adventure is pretty fun and true to the franchise's origins. The game pretty well done while it won't be the game of the year by any means. I was expecting no less from the Lone Wolf franchise.
This game requires you to read a lot. That is a good thing because it offers a lot of interesting plots, choices and most importantly based on your skill to do so. It is based off a popular book series and it follows it very well and true to it. A lot of work and dedication went into this game and it shows with the finished product. It is an RPG and it is turn based as per usual and controls well. If you are an RPG fan, pick this hidden gem up and enjoy. If you are not, i'd still say pick it up and enjoy a good story. If anything the very least this game is a great read.
I remember when I was a kid coming across the Lone Wolf book Wolf's Bane in the library, and figured I give it a go. I became hooked, and ended up reading all of the series. The world, storylines and the ability to chose your own path. It was a great series. I heard about the game coming out and wished I had a tablet to play it on. So when I saw it on Steam, I brought it on here based on the good reviews I've heard about the tablet version. And despite only being a couple of hours in, I'm glad I did. For those who don't know the backstory, you play as a Kai lord (a warrior monk of sorts) called Lone Wolf whose order was wiped out by the hordes of the Darklords leaving you the sole survivor. The game is based among the first series of books, so there's a bit of backstory that the game gives you during the introductory video. And then the game begins. Unlike any rpg I've played, the game follows the same standard as the books - apart from the fight scenes, the game is played through reading pages and making decisions out of the several presented to you at particular parts just like the original books. Depending on your kai-abilities (skills you pick while making your character) and your own choices, there are different ways of approaching a problem. This approach to the game never bothered me, but for some it might bother them to not have any proper gameplay until the battles. The fight scenes is where the gameplay comes in, with a more traditional turn-based system in place. You can choose a variety of options, from attacking with your main weapon and accessing the items on your belt to activating your Kai Disciplines to help you in the fight. It's taken some getting used to, mainly because of the controls being based on the tablets it originally came from. But I'll come back to that shortly. Otherwise the battles are not necessarily anything new in the RPG genre. The one thing I found a bit annoying for myself personally is that you can tell it's been ported from the tablet. There are several mini-games required when using battle skills or when you've made a decision in the story that require you to move the mouse in the direction of the arrow, clicking repeatedly on a area to fill up the bar or clicking the circle at the right time. On a tablet they're easy enough to do, but using a mouse took some getting used to. To conclude, it's a good game in itself with a good storyline so far and many things recognisable to fans of the original books. It might not be to everyone's cup of tea, but I'd simply recommend giving it a go or checking out videos to see if you fancy it. Unlike the tablet version, this comes with all four Acts as well as extra artwork and music for you to have. The graphics are certainly more polished than the tablet as well.
