Awesome game but a bit tasking.

User Rating: 8.8 | Dark Messiah of Might and Magic PC
This is a good game. What I have played so far looks pretty linear and I am not fond of linear games, but it is fun so far. I love the effects (especially the fire). All of this is excellent, but if you think you are going to have much fun playing it on the minimum requirements, think again. I have an Athlon 64 rated at 2.01 GHz (the game site said 2.0 GHz for minimum but the box says 2.6 GHz), with 2 GB RAM and an ATI x800 series graphics card with 256 MB of vid RAM. I can experience about 5 minutes of gameplay before a cut scene plays or a new level loads. It usually takes about 2 minutes or so for a level to load on my system it seems. The play is decent but sometimes it stalls and the audio skips like a broken record for about 10 to 30 seconds and then it lets loose and I continue on. There was one time that it took about 10 minutes to load a map but that was the only time so far. The story is decent and the game looks awesome!

In short, if you have the minimum requirements, you may not enjoy this game. Do some upgrading and then come back.
