Yes, as far as Heretic is concerend, I know where everything and everybody is. I know the same for Hexen and Doom and most other old favorites as well… which makes them ideal for replaying for a quick fix.

Hmmm… did I speak about so many console games? Mortal Kombat and Final Fantasy VII have PC ports just like Wolfenstein has a console port, for example (I have the Super Nintendo Wolf3D version, too), but at least Ehrgeiz and Unreal Championship are console only titles (and in case you wondered, Towers of Darkness is the name of a compilation consisting of Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Rider, Hexen and Deathkings of the Dark Citadel).

I liked it. The only ES titles I didn't play were the handheld titles.

Little RPG elements(stats don't make an RPG, at least not for me), easy puzzles - think of it as an action adventure a la Tomb Raider. It's a nice and entertaining game so far, but it 's not as tough as, say, Hexen (which reviews compared it to).

Semper HiFi!
