In Dark Messiah: Might And Magic Elements, 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.

Cutting-Edge Technology: Experience an enhanced version of the powerful Source Engine from Valve, including new jaw-dropping environments and incredible special effects. Discover an innovative first-person view with complete body awareness, realistic movements and physics rendering, making it the first fantasy action game featuring a complete first-person combat system.

Never-Ending Action: Challenge the forces of evil in 12 immense levels and learn to master over 40 weapons and dozens of devastating spells. Engage the enemy in intense melee combat with swords, bows, staffs and daggers, or summon magic powers against the legions of darkness and sneak in the shadows to stalk depraved creatures. It's all heart-pumping action, where success in combat will dictate your future.

    The Might & Magic Universe's Darkest Side: Explore a secluded region of Ashan populated with fearless orcs, savage goblins, dreadful undeads, elusive trolls, massive dragons and many other creatures that are stunning in both size and depravity. This is a new and darker side of the legendary Might and Magic universe where the forces of evil are stronger and more cunning than ever.

      A Revolutionary, Addictive Multiplayer Mode: Enlist with the humans or the undead, and choose among four character classes. Prepare to battle with up to 32 players in several online modes.

       Quite decent

      | | See all navlasop's reviews (1)

      PC version was crap. Buggy as hell. Over a year later, we get the console version.

      Now, instead of choosing your skills when you get xp, you now choose a class and get skills according to it when you level up. Works better off in my opinion. Voice acting is decent, the movie sequences are only so so qualiy wise, and the story, if a bit obvious and stereotypical, quite fun.

      It's polished quite a bit for the 360, but still crashed a couple times playing it, total lockup.

      As for the controls, it plays great, doesn't feel like a pc game conversion at all. They also changed the intro/prologue a bit. Still haven't finished it, but 8 hours in and looking good :)

       Great but old game

      This came out on the PC ages ago - it was good but feels dated today, even with a 360 spruce up. I doubt play will publish this review as it won't boost sales *sigh* :S

       No Oblivion but great

      when looking at this game you cant help but compare it to oblivion, there is just so much about it thats similar.

      the only differences, are, oblivion has a hell of a lot more freedom. and a lot more to do.
      but its stll great game, and its differences is what makes it good, if it were the same, it would feel like a crappy version of the same game.
      the game is very linear in many ways, story, leveling, and its battle system is very simple, but still effective and fun. 4 diifferent classes of characters, adds quite a lot of replay value, as they are and play very differently.
      while the 3 difficulty settings, difficult mode, is actually, not much harder than easy, so you might aswell start on difficult,
      overall, its slightly rushed with one or two glitches, bad voice acting, but its a great game, if you look at it as a seperate game, and try not comparing it to oblivion unless you must, but if your looking for a hardcore RPG oblivion is the way to go, but this is a good playthrough for the less experienced or even hardcore players looking for a easier game. with fairly easy achievments aswell Go for it

       Epic stuff! shame about all the glitches!!!

      | | See all Leggend's reviews (6)

      Loved the actual game, but hated the glitches. Game jammed too many times, faulted too many times- absolutely gutted when fault was saved into savepoint start- so completely lost everything- unable to progress!!! So warning to all- love the game, but the faulty side may drive you mental

       Dull as a museum of greyness

      This is sadly the nail in the recent might and magic coffin, it lacks any substance, power or epicness right from the start. The gameplay is a sin against next gen consoles and the graphics wudnt pass for ps2 grade.

      I feel like crying cos i love might and magic, but this is clearly the death of it ......
