Not "epic", but very well crafted, May 10, 2010
by Nikos Chantziaras (Greece)
I don't tend to write many reviews about games I've played, but I felt I should somehow step-in here, at least with a comment: Recluse looks quite underrated to me. Every bit of it was enjoyable, and it did remind of the old classics.

Highly recommended, and it's not too long.
