Worth the money!

User Rating: 9 | Dark Messiah of Might and Magic PC
I was apprehensive after the 6.7 review but I had played the demo and really liked it. I decided to grab the game anyway and I can’t say that I'm disappointed at all. The swordfights are just great fun. The way that you can throw oil and light people on fire, throw barrels at Orcs, it’s good stuff it really is. Now I am not calling this game of the year by a long shot. It does have it’s drawbacks. It does have a repetitive tendency to it, run kill, run kill, but it falls along the same lines as HL2, it adds a little something to every fight to change it up. I have not been bored with it since I started this morning. I think gamespot went a little overboard with their rating of it. In my opinion it is at least an 8 all around, the only thing that really gets me is the story. It’s not horrible, but it really isn’t that good. Most of the time you don’t know what your doing or why. But it doesn’t take away from my enjoyment of the game. Don’t let the poor rating convince you not to give this game a whirl, it’s worth it.
