Dark Messiah Might and Magic is a computer game developed by Arkane Studios and Floodgage Entertainment for Ubisoft. It uses a modified version of the Source engine from Valve Software, which was originally used to make Half-Life 2. While Arkane and Floodgate created the single player portion of the game, Kuju Entertainment developed the multiplayer mode.
Dark Messiah seemingly bears no obvious connections to the Might and Magic fantasy world; the latter is not Xeen but Ashan. The game is a first person combat game that features a wide variety of ways to customize the player's character, including stealth, melee combat, archery, as well as violent and non-violent magic. The player takes on the role of a young man named Sareth who wishes to find adventure and riches in the world. He is the pupil to the wizard Phenrig; Sareth's adventures lead him the city of Stonehelm to aid in the recovery of a mystic object known as "The Skull of Shadows".
As many of you probably remember, a lot of people got excited about this game when the demo came out. It seemed to run very well for everyone and the graphical presentation was impressive for its relatively low technical requirements. However, I never saw any substantial reaction to the game once it was released.
Did it crash and burn? The reviews seemed to be pretty mediocre. Were there a lot of bugs, and if there were are they now fixed? I got this game for free with my video card so I'm curious if it is worth an install and play through.
