I have to apologies firstly to someone, someone sent me a bad review of Dark Messiah a while back and I had kept the tip to add to a combined story and have now lost it… Sorry to whoever that was. I was not ignoring it 🙁
Anyway back to the point, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic has now been released locally and internationally to hugely varying reviews.
The current Metacritic score is 53 which is terrible, however Game Informer gave it a 85 which is well worth picking up then. The current user score on Metacritic is 7.3 which is also not to bad.
However on the bad side the reviews are very bad
1UP gave it 20/100, GameSpy 30/100 and Gamespot 35/100. I think Gamespy had the most blasting review of the game when they stated
The staggering lack of quality apparent in Dark Messiah of Might and Magic Elements has left us incredibly disappointed.
I have my copy now and will hopefully get to play it over the weekend and let you know my personal feelings on it. From my few seconds in the game it looks pretty and the basic movement and functionally seemed fine.
Let’s see how it gets on though.
