Stripped of its identity

Sigmund Freud, Amazon
9 July 2012
  • 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. It plays no different then a FPS with levels minus the guns. The roleplaying elements have been stripped down to nothing more then predetermined classes you choose at the start of the game.

DMMM... when girls are around

Zzenya A. Thompson, Amazon

  • 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. If any of those things that I missed out on sound cool to you, Pick your warrior accordingly. Otherwise be the wiz. He's soft at first, but about an hour in, his magic rocks.

Unusually rigid but a decent Theif spinoff

J. Reinhart, Amazon
9 June 2009
  • 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. Yeah that's all there, but the game is absolutely nothing but encapsulated rooms/hallways where it is obvious over and over that you can crush the entire room of enemies by setting off an obviously placed trap.

Not a bad game, but Oblivion set the bar pretty high...

Dennis Grube "Dax Jendo", Amazon
26 July 2008
  • 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. The extremely straightforward nature of Dark Messiah and lack of options was not what lessened the experience for me. Several factors lowered my rating of the game: 1.

Not the best and not the worst

Michael Anthony "Hybridblues", Amazon
3 July 2008
  • 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. After I best the game I felt pretty disapointed because it should've been more to it. This game is worth playing if you want to kill a little time and if you find it cheap ($20 or less).

Not Bad, but its no Oblivion

C. R. Godfrey "Warlock259", Amazon
20 February 2008
  • 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 playing "Thief Deadly Shadows.

Good Storyline...Bad Graphics...

Gamer15, Play.com
10 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Dark Messiah was a good game with an interesting storyline, but it's hard to believe that the game was powered by the Source Engine! This is probably the ugliest game I've ever played and the voice acting is very badly done, but the gameplay was easy to understand, and it was quite fun ripping off the heads of demons and orcs with your shortsword! The main character is quite boring, but he does have some cool abilities.

"Dumbed down, but still worth your time."

Boyd, Mighty Ape
29 June 2008
  • 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, combined with the fast and tight first person melee-and-magic combat, this makes a great experience worth trying out.
