Dark Messiah of Might & Magic (PC) Review @ Guru 3D

Guru 3D (sounds like the name of a game) have posted a review of Dark Messiah of Might & Magic. Better late than never.

Overall, Dark Messiah is a compelling and satisfying journey that will keep you well occupied. However, I feel it just stops short of becoming a truly great game. Some may find the game play, as good as it is, gets repetitive after 8 hours of slicing and dicing enemies in relatively similar fashion, and the whole story could have been laid out a bit more intricately. Generally it’s pretty easy to guess what is going to happen, due to too many obvious clues being hinted out prior to a major part of the plot unfolding. I also feel, particularly in the first half of the game, that it tends to hold your hand a bit too much with either Xana, or Leanna often pointing out resolutions to puzzles, or problems (even telling you how to kill a boss in one instance!) that would be a whole lot more satisfying if you were left to work these things out for yourself.
