This is one of my all-time favorite RPGs. I think it had me when I knocked a skeleton off a ledge and killed it. (Probably killed it by the hit that knocked it off the ledge, but it still seemed like it exploded when it hit the far wall).
The game kicked all kinds of butt. For immersion potential, it totally won.
I never quite warmed up to Arx Fatalis. It felt like it had the "survival RPG" side (and cumbersome interface problem) of the Underworld games, but not the whole suspension-of-disbelief, dungeon-simulation aspect.
But yeah, one of my all-time favorites. I still have both games, dust them off periodically to remember how they were (and to make sure my nostalgia glasses don't get too much of a red tint).
