    After several hours of play and reaching Act 3 I can safely recommend this game to any ARPG Fans.

    The game seemed a bit rough around the edges starting out, but after getting to Act 3 where you have access to the “World Map” and access to the Market where you can go and donate items and other things, the game has grown on me and I think I may be addicted somewhat.

    Do not pay attention to other reviewers stating that enemies do not drop loot, because they most certrainly do, and lots of it. The problem is the game starts you out facing enemies that do not drop loot. It seems in Five the enemies that drop loot most of the time are what you might call “Elites”. These are enemies that have at least 1 Star under their health bar. Some enemies will have more than one star indicating they are higher rank and they will drop more and better loot.

    Honestly Five has more in common with Marvel Heroes Online than any thing else I can think of. Five is more about skills much like MHO. Also some have complained that they don’t get to put points into their individual stats on level up, which is true, but Five is more about farming loot that has the stat bonuses you want and fine tuning your character that way, which honestly has more impact than dropping 5 points into various stats each level up.

    I highly encourage others to play through to Act 3 and possibly a little further before posting your review. Once you have access to Zion things get much more interesting, plus you can use the map to go back and play previous chapters and even farm bosses.

    In fact I just finished replaying the chapter where you fight Goliath and got myself a brand spankin’ new Goliath Spear that has different stats than the first one I got, plus the stats are better as in Five when loot drops it drops around your level, enemies also seem to get buffed when you go back through area’s as well, which keeps things a little more challenging.

    I have really enjoyed the comic book cut scenes and voice overs as well. Very good and informative stuff.

    All the Biblical and Historical information the game gives you along the way comes in handy when you get access to Zion as there is a Quiz Podeum thing where it tests your knowledge through the different chapters of the game and then you are granted loot based on how well you did. It is not a new thing, but it is nice to see it in the game.

    Also if there are features you want to see added be sure to post in the forums as Chris will usually respond and pass suggestions on to the Dev Team.

    All in all, after several hours of play I would give Five a solid 7.5/10. It’s a good ARPG for the money and is better than some of the other Diablo clones on Steam. There are still some improvements and features that could be added and I hope the Dev’s will listen to fans and add those features in the future.
