Type of game that might just sink into obscurity like Knights Contract.

Yeah I don't think the sales will be amazing, which is a shame. But then sales don't equal quality. I still think it will do ok and make profit, but it's not gonna break any records for sure.

It's going to be fantastic, but I'm sure the difficulty will deter some reviewers.  'Casual' gamers need not apply.

It's definitely nothing like God of War.  It's a brutal 3rd-person action/RPG.  It's hard to compare to games of current generation, except for Demon's Souls of course.  If you told the team that made Witcher to make a hardcore Fable game, it would probably be similar.

Here's a gameplay vid.
