Summary: Dark messiah elements is a pc port that's on the 360. This doesn't sound reassuring and it will disappoint those who were expecting a ES:oblivion PC treatment equivalent coming to the xbox. Instead what you have here is a linear action adventure.
Summary: Well I guess I'm the one to go ahead and "Bite the Bullet." I Bought this game and after a few hours of playing it, its not what I was expecting, but not entirely without merrit. First let me say, this game is unflinchingly linear compared to Oblivion and other games of the like, Its more akin to...
Summary: game is not innovative and the controls are simple off a bit not way of maximize the item found on the game but for collection only whick suck's and the bug's on the game.for example you can not continuo your quest until the level can not be complete for xanple destroy all enemies on the boat on...
Summary: I just got finished with this game today with all the endings (which all are mediocre by the way). This isn't the worst RPG game out there but it certainly isn't the best either. The dialogue most of the time is cheesy and there's no real character development.
Not a bad game, but Oblivion set the bar pretty high...

Summary: When it comes to console RPGs, Oblivion was in a league of it's own. And while Dark Messiah is not a bad game, I found myself comparing certain aspects to the infamous Elder Scrolls game again and again. It may just be personal preference, but I enjoy customization and a free-roaming world.
Summary: Dark Messiah of Might and Magic Elements is surprisingly rigid, particularly in the level design. It was advertised as sort of a sandbox game where you explore dungeons and set off traps and shoot ice spells at the floor to make enemies slide off ledges.
Summary: Just pretend you're playing Oblivion, but just the main quest. I only went through as the wizard, but I got the idea. I never got a stealth kill, I never sniped a dude with an arrow, and I never took on five guys in hand to hand combat, but by the time I was done with the game... I was done.
Summary: This game is a very fun First person slasher with a lot of emphasis on using the environment as a tool to aid you in battle, using a modified version of the source engine from valve, pick things up and throw them at enemies, kick your foes off ledges and into spikes, trigger traps and much more,...
Excerpt: Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements is an interesting little RPG on the Xbox 360. I say interesting because I took a punt after finding it with bargain bin £5 price tag, and after a recommendation from a friend. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but for a fiver, how could I go wrong?
