...it is Dark Messiah. Some people may love the game, some people may hate it. Let me just start off by saying that the controls are an utter mess! You walk with the mouse, using the motions to move and you look up and down with the AWSD control scheme! And don't even bother trying to fix it. The game just freezes when you pause! I've played through 3-something levels only to have it get deleted when I tried to pause to get a drink! The graphics are (supposively) on the Source Engine. But even with the highest settings, the game looks like it was done on the Quake III engine. Even with the settings on bare-boned lows you will only get frame rates in the single digits, even while looking at the ground! The mutliplayer (if you can call it that) is lifeless and unsatisfying. Imagine hitting a tree with a baseball all day - you pictured it? - well that is what playing this game is like. Repetitive, and after a while, it hurts.
