Amazing Couch Co-Op!
The amount of couch co-op games are dwindling, but this game is a shining beacon of hope for those of us who do not care much for playing with strangers online. The only point I have negative to say is a minor one: the cut scenes are drawn, not animated (but still very well drawn). Despite that, the music and atmospheres are beautiful.
Character-wise, you don't have to limit yourself in terms of being only warrior, mage, etc, because you combine abilities as you see fit. This game is difficult at the beginning and will take some time to understand the mechanics of battle and the intricate story lines, but it is well worth your time. My husband and I played (and struggled!) through it once, got the hang of it, then replayed again. We loved it even more the second time through.
I picked this up by chance, simply because I was out looking for any Xbox One co-op, and man did I luck out! It is most definitely one of the best games I have played in a long time. I very highly recommend it.
