I never played the games, but I mostly like what they tried to do here. It has enough original ideas and small subversions of classic fantasy tropes, that it stands out as a unique fantasy yarn, but it also could have used another round of editing. Some scenes don't breathe like they should, others are too slow, some characters obviously were more interesting in the script than they are here.
The end result is watchable and far from being a soulless paycheck movie, but also not the genre re-invention that it was supposed to be.
