And that actually brings me to the biggest flaw found within The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse. For an RPG, everything is just far too calculated: there is an exact amount of battles you can take part in; villages can only be visited when the story allows; you will be this level when you fight this boss. There is simply no real control over much of anything. Even the dialogue options barely have any impact on the story.
The Huntsman: Winter's Curse would have been a much more exciting experience had it had better direction. There are interesting battle mechanics, but they never reach their full potential, and the textboxes describe dramatic scenes, which the characters on-screen fail to act out. Also, most importantly, basic progression through the adventure is hindered by the bugs that will break all but the most persistent of gamers. There was a predicted winter's curse, but many will feel that it has arrived early in this ultimately broken release…
The Huntsman: Winter's Curse's relatively short campaign is a slog, with little variation in the types of enemies presenting themselves. Moreover, the plot is so basic that it offers little in the way of distraction from the terrible mechanics of the game. The only saving grace is that this is an attractive game with its storybook stylisation.
