Summary: I just recently purchased and started playing this game. I assume that it's because of when it came out that people have spotted comparisons and, mostly, contrasts between it and Oblivion. Nowadays, no one would probably put the 2 together at all, other than the magic and swords and first-person perspective. The gameplay and appearance remind me more of Dishonored, minus a lot of the cool stuff like upgrades and dual-wield.
Summary: I have already bought the PC collection edition so maybe that will be better on the PC. I'll first tell you overall how I felt the game was before I got stuck. It's a bit cheesy. Not Japanese anime RPG cheesy, but "Oh, I get a staff, yippee!" cheesy. The melee system is pretty bad. Other reviewers bash Oblivion for having repetitive combat? Yes, that's repetitive but this is really bad. Block attack, bash and kick them.
Summary: This game is lots of fun. It feels more like a first person shooter then a RPG and that might be a good thing. The rope arrow is my favorite part of the game and I don't know if it exists in any other games. This alone makes this a unique gaming experience and the fact the game is super cheap to buy now makes it worth playing. I think it looks pretty good and has some fun puzzles and This game is lots of fun.
Summary: The game is linear, however. Very linear. There are sometimes multiples ways to attack a problem, but this is the exception rather than the rule. Still, this game's structure provides a tight, action-focused gaming experience with just a smattering of lite (& I do mean LITE) role playing elements.
Summary: The combat is good. Using the game's physics to kick unsuspecting foes into massive chasms or into raging fires is undeniably fun. In fact, using your environment to aid you in slaying your enemies is where the game really shines. Of course, a pretty diverse set of magic spells and archery options do their part in diversifying the experience, but melees have a good solid feel to them as you parry your opponents' attacks and line up your own.
Summary: Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements, is a funny game, have a good details, obviously is not better than the PC Version, have some mistakes, and some parts are strange. The game is funny, have a good gameplay and have pretty graphics. No more.
