In Dark Messiah: Might And Magic, players will be introduced to the world of Ashan, the new setting for all future Might & Magic games. Ashan is a dark and unforgiving world, scarred by a bloody history and threatened by an apocalyptic prophecy: the Dark Messiah.

Players will embody the young hero Sareth, who has been trained in the arts of magic and war in order to battle the prophetic Dark Messiah. Players will have the choice to become expert warriors, mages or assassins, each with their own cache of devastating weapons and spells to use in battling huge and vicious enemies. Through combat, players will unlock new skills and equipment, advancing Sareth's experience and improving his performance, battle combos, hits, spells and techniques and setting his course for his destiny.

        I loved the story, the characters and above all; the combat. This game really brings out the best of the Half-Life 2 engine with some spectacular HDR-effects and nice looking charcters. The bugs which have pulled down the rating for many magazines and gamingsites are gone with the patches, so just make sure to patch the game before you play it. It's probably the best game of 2006

         A lot of fun!

        Ok, I consider this game a fantasy FPS, rather than a RPG. It does not detract from the experience. The game does leave you with little freedom in terms of story, character interaction and level exploration. But again, this is not Oblivion, this is Half-Life 2 in fantasy realm. And my, was it fun! The levels are designed so that there are many different ways to take out your enemies. Ok, it IS contrived but still a lot of fun, when you throw an arrow to cut the rope holding in place that suspended block of concrete (which has no reasonable explanation for being there in the first place) so that it flies down and throws that unfortunate orc into the chasm he was peering in a second ago. You can also kick enemies into fires or into spiked gratings (that again, are there for no other reason), pick up barrels and throw them on their heads, not to mention the more conventional approaches of sword, bow, magic and stealth. You cannot master every single skill as you can do in Oblivion, so this makes for some replay value, although I don't think you'll want to play it more than twice. Oh, be sure to use the hard difficulty settings, or it will be over too soon!
        The graphics are very good even on relatively low-end PCs, just make sure you have enough RAM - one gigabyte is not enough - or the game will start swapping on disk like crazy.
        All in all, I found this game much more fun than your average FPS, and also loved the artistic side of the graphics. Just be advised that there's not much more RPG depth than there is in Diablo!

         Great game at this price!

        Ok, it's doesn't have the most gripping story, and the levels are all linear, but that is pretty much all the bad points out of the way. So many games these days prize storyline and graphics above gameplay, but this game is ALL about the gameplay.

        Simply put, this is the most playable game I have played in a long while, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a bit of sword and scorcery, and is tired of uninspiring combat systems.

         Great game...

        I enjoyed this game as it gave a whole new game system. The combat system that is, it is fresh and great to play. It is a FPS-RPG, the fps side is great, the RPG side is also great but it's not like Oblivion or anything, it's simple upgrades and what not.

        Though it was great graphics and the detail was awesome, good story line and the weapon combat was great.

         Fun

        This game is really fun to play, you can use a lot of weapons, shields, magic spells and has a RPG-like system for improving abilities. You can even kick your enemies (for example making them fall in an abyss) or use the environment and other traps.
        It has great graphics with very huge monsters and good sound.
        The story is interesting too, with even multiple endings.
