Dark Messiah: Dead Man's Trail Hands-On @ GameSpot

by Dhruin, 2006-10-04 23:35:00
A new Dark Messiah preview at GameSpot provides hands-on impressions of a level titled Dead Man's Trail and featuring a roof-top chase. The intro warns of minor spoilers, so be careful:
You'll also encounter fast-paced action sequences such as the Dead Man's Trail, a level that we got to play in a recent work-in-progress version of the game. The Dead Man's Trail takes place relatively early in the game, and it puts you in a desperate chase over the rooftops of Stonehelm, the main human town in Dark Messiah. In the tutorial of Dark Messiah, you're tasked with recovering a special artifact for your master and tutor, the wizard Phenrig. It turns out that you'll need that object, because your first goal in the game is to deliver it to the wizard Menelag, the ruler of Stonehelm. Of course, that's going to be a lot harder said than done. After delivering the crystal, you check yourself into an inn, only to be woken up shortly after thanks to an attack by an evil necromancer's army. You've got to quickly grab your sword, because the invaders waste no time in rushing your room and attacking you. This begins a lengthy battle as you fight your way across the city of Stonehelm.
