Reception[edit]

The reviews it received were mostly mediocre. Notable concerns from reviewers included a weak draw distance, constant pop up due to the draw distance, overall graphical quality, and clumsy combat. Still, reviewers generally praised the game for its large world, great sound and the large amount of content.
