First of all, I love this game. This is not some troll. I just am so glad to have a new ARPG come out that's fun, has depth, and (other than server issues) is generally very well done that I simply must comment on the campaign's ending.
BIG FAT SPOILER ALERT - STOP READING NOW IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED THE GAME
Ok, so let's recap. It's the last scene of the game. Gernese is trying to close the portal. Ahriman is splitting and looks to be possessing Heimlock and Valeria. You declare "there's no giving up on family" and valiantly run in front of the red energy coming from the portal and try to cast some shield which Ahriman breaks through and appears to possess you. You scream. Next we cut to an ominous scene of Ahriman himself who then says "be at peace for we are the fury!" (because, you know, him being the fury is so peaceful)
So you are basically a total failure. You have not saved Valeria or Heimlock. You have not saved the world from Ahriman. Matter of fact near as I can tell you now ARE Ahriman. Let the pacification begin! Yay! All this effort and heroism was a total waste of time!
This is quite possibly the worst ending in the history of video game endings.
And now as a COMPLETE NON-SEQUITUR... You are now mayor of Stormfall!
Uh, what happened to Ahriman, Valeria, Heimlock and Gernese?
The only thing that makes any sort of sense to me about all of this is that there was supposed to be a chapter 4, and maybe even 5, but you ran out of time/money/goodwill to get it finished, and so we got... this. Anyway, I realize there's no fixing it. YOu can't just go re-do an ending cut scene. I just felt like I needed to share my feedback somewhere. Just to be clear. This ending sucks... bad.
I'm done. Love the rest of the game!
