Dark Messiah - 79% at Gameguru Mania

Gameguru Mania have published their review of Dark Messiah of Might and Magic and rated the game a solid 79%.

Developed by Arkane Studios (Arx Fatalis makers), Dark Messiah of Might & Magic is a first-person action game that utilizes an enhanced version of the Source Engine, the technology Valve created to power Half-Life 2. The game takes place in Might and Magic fantasy world. You play the role of a young man named Sareth who wishes to find adventure and riches in the world. You are the pupil to the wizard Phenrig; Sareth's adventures lead you the city of Stonehelm to aid in the recovery of a mystic object known as "The Skull of Shadows".

Dark Messiah of Might & Magic allows you to choose your own paths in terms of character development. Each time you complete an objective, you will earn skill points, which you can spend to acquire new abilities, skills and spells. Thanks to these skills, you can adopt different play styles ranging from mage to warrior, archer and assassin. The skills are, for the most part, balanced, though some are obviously more useful than others. There are not fixed classes though, as you can arrange you skills the way you want, choosing to grow, for instance your warrior and mage skills.
