Boomtown is the latest site to serve up a <a href="http://pc.boomtown.net/en_uk/articles/art.view.php?id=12537" target="_blank">preview</a> of Dark Messiah:<blockquote><em>Once I was through the training tutorial, the real meat of the feast was unveiled as the opportunity of combat with multiple enemies arose, and instead of words of criticism, I just dribbled on myself and muttered incoherently. Wow is all that can be said in retrospect. Arkane Studios has created one of finest melee combat systems I have ever seen in a game of this nature.

Naturally, each is accompanied by spurts of crimson liquid emanating from your foe.</em></blockquote>
