What Gamespot Users have to say about Arx Fatalis

  • Review Score:7.9

    Arx Fatalis is average as an RPG, but oustanding as a creepy, atmospheric adventure game.

    Arx Fatalis is JoWood’s dark-themed 1st-person RPG: The game is set in a dark world where the sun has burnt out, and the inhabitants of Arx have moved underground to survive. The different races -- humans, goblins, dw... Read Full Review

    Arx Fatalis is one to own if you can still find it. One of the best atmosphere?s of any RPG I?ve played in the last few years. The story is immersive, the graphics are very sharp and the sound is good. It reminds me o... Read Full Review

    Simply, one of the best RPGs ever created. From the first hour of gameplay, the player cannot help but realize this game was created by people who play and love RPGs. When that happens, usually you'll end up with a pro... Read Full Review

    Arx Fatalis is the kind of game that just grows on you. When I picked it up, it was really unheard of, the only reason I knew about it was because I ran into a demo for it. The demo sold me, the graphics were great. It l... Read Full Review

    Arx Fatalis is a good RPG that's got some interesting twists to it but an overall experience that's a bit hollow.

    On the world of Arx, the sun has burned out and civilization has moved underground where the entire game takes place. It's a bit if a cliche, but you begin the game as a prisoner of goblins who has lost his memory. You... Read Full Review

    First come Morrowind, after this come Arx Fatalis.

    Let's talk about Arx Fatalis, another FPSRPG this time developed by Arkane Studios and published by JoWood. If you know Morrowind you'll be familiar with Arx Fatalis because it shares the same visual, infact as Morrowin... Read Full Review

    A good looking albeit linear RPG

    Movies and games that feature amnesiac protagonists have gotten so overdone that I find myself trying to avoid them. Once in a while there is some decent entertainment to be had, but I find the amnesia plot formula to be... Read Full Review

    Decent game with some pretty nifty stuff

    First off gameplay.. For a port it plays very well. Although the difficulty towards the end is pretty unbalanced when facing off against the two handled speedy knights.. You have to go through a good four of them to make... Read Full Review

    Only for catalans.

    Vaig sentir d´aquest joc força abans de poder jugar-hi, i em va fer molt bona impresió ja que deien que volia reprendre l´essència de la sèrie Ultima Underworld. Quan vaig jugar-hi, no em va decrèixer la meva il.lusió, ... Read Full Review

    An under-rated RPG with great atmosphere, an interesting world, and a genuine sense of novelty.

    A quirky and under-rated RPG which is considered a 'spiritual successor' to the Ultima series. Essentially it's a typical first-person RPG with adventure elements. However, where Arx Fatalis differs from the rest is its ... Read Full Review
