Slow, slow action
This is not the game to play late at night because it is so slow paced that you might fall asleep playing it. I lasted through a few scenes and decided to put it away. I tried it again and decided that I wasted my money buying it. Stay away. I was simply bored with it from the start.

Ummmmm...How about no!
Initially I was quite intrigued by the game description, as well as the first few reviews. I was all set to use my credit and purchase the game after seeing such rave reviews given by other members. There was one negative review and I usually don't give much credence to such reviews when there is only one person that didn't like the game versus many others that did. However, I decided to download the demo first and see if the negative review had some merit. I am so, so, so very glad I did. I played the demo all of 15 minutes and just couldn't bare to play anymore. Horrible, horrible, graphics. The repeated one-liners given by the characters is beyond annoying to the point you'd rather listen to nails on a chalk board than to hear them speak. Another reviewer of like mind mentioned the screen resolution; which I'm playing on my PC that's hooked to a 42" flat screen, so I was not happy at all with the box-shapened, slow moving, drag-n-drop, graphics of this game. Before starting the game I did go to the options screen and found the game has an option to adjust screen resolution which helped a little, but the improvement was mediocre at best. Perhaps I didn't give the game a full chance. And being that I still have 40+ minutes left in the trial, I will possibly try to play again (eventually) just to see if things improve. However I highly doubt that it will.
There are times that I have come on BF and just purchased a game based off the description and reviews alone, not bothering to try the trial; but this game however, I cannot express enough how glad I was to try the trial first. As I would have been HIGHLY upset had I spent a credit or paid out right for the game to begin with. That being said, don't risk not liking the game....play the trial first if you're that interested in purchasing based off the description. Don't go off the overly exaggerated positive reviews. I'm being extremely nice by giving it 2-Stars, only because I think hate is such a strong word...so I strongly disliked this game to put it mildly.

Awful Awful game
Had to give it one star so I could write review.
characters only moved by flag drag placement
screen movement (due to dragflag) slow and annoying
I tired to find out when this game was released, if it was 2000 then its an ok game for its time, if it was released after 2001 its a horrible game. not even worth the 2.99 special.
I love games of this genre, and am so glad i played the demo first. I will look for something else.

Why change a working formula for this?
I have been an avid fan of westward since I first started playing them with Westward II. I had been waiting for the next installment in this amazing series and was met with this abysmal mess. How could you go so far off script? Over the years I had gotten used to the repeated one liners and grew to love them. Even the same old tune playing unending in the background became a comfort to me. But this game is horrible. I want a true westward sequel, not this rehashed mess. I was so bored within just minutes of playing that I couldn't even finish the demo time. Nothing about this game was redeeming and I just want my original storylines back.
