    If you want an RPG, you will be disappointed. If you want an action game, Dark Messiah rules the world.

    With extremely fun single-player and multi-player, Dark Messiah is truly an amazing game. Beneath all the complaining and griping, the core of the game is rock solid. In fact, most of the complaints a...

    ok, so everyone knows the source engine from half-life 2 right? it was used in some other not so good games but then it meets DMoMaM.First, the bad points: it's got very bad textures, sometimes you WI...

    Crashes ... cant get anywhere !

    Rated on June 03, 2007 by lanesade

    Gave it another try: I tried the latest patch, and it worked better, but not for long. It got me into the game far enough to see that the game would be fun if it ran for more than 15 min. at a time. ...

    A message for all the people who have a problem with the Dark Messiah story or killing sistem (notice: justice is home)!

    Rated on August 20, 2009 by Nimi95

    I love the game. I disagree with the people who said that the story line is lame or boring, Although the player can guess the story very easily and in the early parts of the game, the story line keeps...

    Repetitive combat? yeah, repetativly brilliant!

    Rated on August 31, 2009 by TheClown24

    As usual i will write my review in typical GS form: The Good: Staggeringly brilliant combat, i find it hard to believe that GS found it repetative. In every fight there are a few different ways to g...

    For a fantasy-based action FPS, you can’t go wrong with this game. Just make sure you hardware is up to the task!

    Rated on May 13, 2007 by flishkin

    When I first got this game, my computer was so slow I simply could not play it. I put it on the shelf for a months waiting for my next PC upgrade. Now with the new PC and the latest patch, this turn...

    not bad at all.... a bit linear and by no means Oblivian, but the game does have some good points. A fun game to play!

    Rated on May 17, 2007 by Shep78

    I think who ever reviewed this game gave it a bad wrap and an even worse score. The game was fun to play, the combat put oblivion to shame and the skills and powers were fun to use during the duration...

    I played 14 hours straight through without a single crash.

    Rated on April 14, 2008 by kevinfelker42

    It seems rare I find a game these days where I don't need a break. First, the graphics are great. Plenty of dynamic lighting, color, and diverse levels. I find the design and artistic direction t...
