Reviews and Problems with Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
Showing 1-2 of 2
Graphics over strategy
3 June 2009
Summary: I bought this hoping that it would be something like the old Might and Magic series of RPG games. It is very different. This game adds tons of extraordinary graphics, much of which is gratuitous violence, and it deletes all the puzzle-solving and strategy aspects of the old games. If you want to run around and shoot things and watch all the blood fly everywhere and be immersed in a spooky world that is very realistic, good for you.
Summary: The only reason Dark Messiah didn't get a poor rating from me was because of the honorable mention I have to give the game for it's graphics: they're not the greatest I've ever seen but they are good nonetheless. Other than that, this is THE most lacklustre, unimaginative, two-dimensional, LINEAR action-adventure game--given the state-of-the-art of today's computer gaming technology--I've ever seen!
