    [​IMG]Quarter to Three has reviewed Age of Decadence and gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

    You could play Age of Decadence as a more gameplay oriented RPG, but I don't recommend it. Unfortunately, this is what will happen if you want to play a combat-based character. I chose a mercenary for my second playthrough and eventually decided I couldn't be bothered with the combat. For a system with so much detail - you can choose to aim for an artery when you swing an axe - it sure does feel pointless. Age of Decadence even warns you before you start playing. "Hey," it says in a politely worded message, "you might want to consider avoiding combat, because we made it kinda hard." I'll say. Pass. I'm here for the story. If I want detailed tactical combat, I'll go back to Pillars of Eternity. If I want visual spectacle, I'll go back to The Witcher 3. It's worth noting I didn't finish the storyline in either of those games. But I sure as hell did in Age of Decadence.​
