These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
So Okay, It's Average: Apart from the graphics and engine, there's nothing in the game you can look at and say 'this is wrong; this is why it's bad'. It's got decent action RPG gameplay, decent roleplaying, decent design...and yet it all adds up to a game that's just all right. Perhaps because few risks were taken?
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: As Graham and Paul of LRR mention in their Let's Play (which only lasted until the first boss fight), if it weren't for the poor interface and responsiveness and lack of polish (they made a point out of Dervish being spelled Derwish in a number of different places) a lot of the game would be pretty good. They mention it specifically in regards to the Mistress boss fight, which they thought was a pretty good idea on the whole let down by not giving the player any clue what to do during the first and last stages.
