granted i haven't yet played the game myself. the demo ran pretty lousy on my computer dispite me being able to gothic 3 very well and nwn2 even better which was supposed to be for christmas but i opened a few days ago. the review has peaked my interest again in the game as i enjoyed my 'love/hate relationship' like many with arx fatalis. but unlike the reviewer i'll wait til i can find it for ~20 or less. the part of the review that really interested me was that randy smith was involved in its development and specifically the project he is working on with steven spielberg!

"Randy Smith consulted extensively with Arkane on Dark Messiah, and it shows in nearly every aspect of the experience. Randy came from Looking Glass, where he was a level designer and then senior designer on the Thief games. After that, he served as project lead on Thief: Deadly Shadows at Ion Storm, and he is now working on a secret project with Steven Spielberg and fellow Looking Glass alum Doug Church. He is one of the industry's most highly respected experts on stealth-based design and use of emergent play techniques to expand player freedoms."
