Dark Messiah - Review @ Yahoo! Games

by Dhruin, 2006-10-30 20:52:38

The latest Dark Messiah review comes courtesy of Yahoo! Games, where it received a mixed response and a score of 3.5/5, although multiplayer was rated 4/5.  Here's an excerpt:

The skills are where the RPG stuff comes into play. Do you opt for magical spells, do you put the points into stealth for backstab ambushes, or do you just buff your combat abilities? Each branch has further branches, whether it's elemental magic or charms, or melee or ranged combat. Furthermore, many encounters have a few different solutions, such as using environmental hazards against enemies or simply sneaking past them. It's nowhere near as robust as something like Deus Ex, which is obviously the inspiration for this type of gameplay. But it keeps Dark Messiah from being too linear and predictable.
