Lionheart first impressions at Gamers with Jobs

Gamers with Jobs have put up their first impressions of Reflexive's dungeony, alternate Earth CRPG, Lionheart. Here's the conclusion:
All told, I'm pretty pleased with Lionheart so far. As your character develops skill, even under the sometimes heavy pressure of the pace, you feel increasingly capable of handling your foes. Never as frantic as Diablo, but also not as thoughtful as Fallout, Lionheart seems to have found its own pace somewhere between action oriented and overly strategic. Set to the backdrop of absolutely gorgeous scenes, and an alternate history where you interact with the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci, Cervantes, and Shakespeare, the gripes I've had so far don't come close to outweighing the positives. Of course, I'll take more time to weigh those complaints in a much more comprehensive review but for now Lionheart passes my first impression litmus test; that being, I'd rather be playing Lionheart than writing this article.
The problem with first impressions is that you still have that shiny, new feeling for a game. Hell, I even liked Black and White for the first two days.
