Sorcery could have been so much more. Yes, the reviews for it tend to be glowing, but I was plagued by a nagging thought while playing—I’ve played a better version of this before. I’m not talking about the Sorcery series of books that this game is based off of, either, so much as games like Tales of Illyria. Compared to the Illyria games, Sorcery just doesn’t stack up. It’s too short, its combat is tedious, and it has an incomplete (not to mention generic) story. That’s not even mentioning how it railroads you into a similar kinds of events no matter what you do, making later playthroughs less rewarding than they probably should be. It’s just not enough.
