Loved it, despite some hiccups
28 January 2014
Summary: As I've never been a FPS player before, I was slightly nervous of starting something like this. However, the game sucked me right in and I'm glad for it. This game's biggest strength is its variety in combat.
Summary: Absolutely loved this game. Considering its age the graphics stand up extremely well, and you can run it on full settings with no problems with a 1 GB graphics card. There are two patches available from gamershell.com. Anyone who likes RPGs especially the more action oriented ones will love this.
Excellent gritty combat with a thousand different ways to kill an Orc.

Summary: Bought for PC at a bargain price in 2012, installed patch, ran smoothly, enjoyed single player game from beginning to end. Excellent gritty combat with a thousand different ways to kill an Orc. The voice acting was 'tongue in cheek' and humorous. Do not take it too seriously.
Summary: Dark Messiah was released in 2006 on an enhanced version of Valve's source engine of Half-Life 2 fame. The game is graphically beautiful and features likeable characters, intense gameplay and a phenomenal soundtrack. I recommend anyone who missed out on this game on release to give it a try.
Summary: Bought this, completed it and loved it. It is very short; about 6 hours, but very enjoyable. I played on full whack resolution and all effects on max amd it still looks quite good. This will fill a small gap until Skyrim comes out...
Summary: Starting off I wasn't sure I was going to like this game - basically plays more or less like an FPS with some RPG elements (skills to choose between, a reasonable variety of different bits of equipment to find and use appropriately).
Summary: Right. Firstly, all you people who are going on about it crashing, chances are your PC is rubbish. And at worse turn the graphics down! Seen as they are pretty astounding, it is not surprising that low-spec pc's cant cope with it!
Summary: It seems the main reason for the low ratings on this game is the difficulties people have getting the game to run, Those who can`t obviously hate it and those who can love it I couldn`t run it to start with but after turning down the resolution to 800/600 it seems to run fine.
