Might and Magic Diversify
30 October 2011
Summary: For those expecting more of the same style of Might and Magic game play could be very dissapointed. But if you are able to shake of your pre-conceptions, and have a powerfull enough computer, it is very enjoyable. When it was originally released most machines couldn't cope with it.
Excerpt: I'm new to the Might and Magic world. I’ve never really noticed the games within the world until now so not an expert on the lore involved throughout the games but that didn’t stop me from enjoying Dark Messiah. Plot: You are Sareth. A disciple of a mage named Phenrig with an uncertain past.
Pros: Very pretty game with a destructible environment
Summary: MM Dark Messiah is one of the most forgotten and unappreciated gems in the role-playing genre. The game breaks from the classic Might & Magic style from a long open world rpg to a linear action focused rpg and it does so beautifully.
Summary: The story is a bit thin and it is really quite brutal, minors should not play this. That said, the combat system works great, interacts amazingly with the surrounding world (not like other games, where those barrels and stones are just graphics) and the game is a great thrill ride.

Drak Messiah, all the swords and magic you dreamed of

Excerpt: I really loved this game even before I played it, just the thought of decapitating orcs or slaying cyclops. This game comes from the famous Of might and magic series but with a series difference, action blood heads and more action.
Excellent role play action game, better than Oblivion!

Conclusion: I heard some fairly dodgy reviews of this game, especially from the US game websites, but Dark Messiah has an awful lot going for it. For me its a game you can pick up and pretty much get into straight off.
Summary: I'm currently about 8-10 hours into the game, and really quite enjoying this. I've had precisely one crash during that time, and am otherwise running the game at maximum detail levels with the v1.2 patch.
