Arx Fatalis

20 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I went into this game not really knowing what to expect. The cover art isn't anything special, and the name isn't very memorable. I had heard people try and compare it to other games like Morrowind. Well, let me tell you what I found...

Arx Fatalis Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Arx Fatalis, much like any RPG, will not be for everyone. While it can’t be put at the same level as KotOR or Morrowind, Arx offers a more linear gameplay style that is a nice break from the huge open ended worlds the previous games have offered.

Arx Fatalis

Game Vortex
21 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Arx Fatalis doesn't add anything amazing to the RPG genre in the way of visuals, and looks like a very watered down version of Morrowind . The drab locales (due in part to most of the game taking place underground) can cause severe depression if you're surrounded by them for too long.

Arx Fatalis

Into Liquid Sky
8 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Arx Fatalis is a PC first person role-playing game, originally released in 2002, that has been brought to the Xbox by the fine folks at Dreamcatcher (who also published Syberia and Still Life ). The story presented to the player at the start of the game tells of a world where the sun has gone away.
  • Pros: Strong retro RPG feel to the gameplay, Lots of customization, Combo-oriented magic system, Nice attempt at a realistic world
  • Cons: Dated graphics and mediocre audio, Hit detection is iffy, Map and diary are pretty useless

Arx Fatalis

The Armchair Empire
18 January 2006
  • Conclusion: In a move that was inspired by classic RPG’s before it, ARX includes a complex character creation process. While nothing concrete has been announced thus far, if ARX follows in the footsteps of other RPG character creation processes, then you’ll be able to customize every facet of your character...

8 January 2006
  • Excerpt: RPG-starved Xbox fans have cause to rejoice-or at least get excited-with the release of Arx Fatalis. If asked to describe Arx in a single word, I'd inevitably go with solid. This port of a PC RPG from last year doesn't do much of anything we haven't seen before, but everything it attempts to do, it...

  • Summary: Ah, the good old-fashioned dungeon crawl, you don’t really see a lot of them these days. Everyone’s about the big open outdoor environments and their fancy sky effects. Me, I find it kind of relaxing to crawl around dark, dank environments exploring the nocks and killing the various things that...

Arx Fatalis

GamersHell.com
12 January 2003
  • Excerpt: You wake up in a dark and damp prison-cell. Outside you can see an odd, but obviously not very smart goblin. He’s grinning, but for some reason you can’t remember anything about yourself – who you are, and why you’re in some strange prison.

  • Excerpt: Arx Fatalis puts a different spin on the two very popular genres, Role Playing and First Person Games. I think pictures will say it best, the game takes you through a Dungeon and Dragon type world through the eyes of the adventurer.
