    Just completed the PC version yesterday. It's a good game and I enjoyed it.

    Agreed, I very much enjoyed the PC version. I've been playing the multiplayer... But it got pretty old very fast.

    Pc multiplayer was a different developer and, as such, an utterly different style to the singleplayer game - which was a shame really. The whole gladitorial thing esp. had so much promise...

    I've enjoyed Dark Messiah much more than oblivion (the original). I tend to prefer the RPG features much more over action. But in this case, Dark messiah had such an involving ambience that overrides the beautifully made RPG system on Oblivion.

    The traps in DM makes the ones in TES look like they were made in Flash or Director for the web. And u can kick too! It's sooo nice to kick an enemy out of the edge into an abyss. That's veeery fun

    I never managed to complete DMoMaM, I really liked it, but for some reason when I reformatted my PC, some games (namely NWN2 and Dark Messiah) performed really badly after the reformat so I never bothered to play them again.

    i LOVE the original Dark Messiah. my only irk is the article saying the engine start to show its age... but all the screenshots looks great... at least much better than how it looks on my struggling PC with 7900GT back then.... that game was quite demanding...

    I played the demo which started off in the new grassy tutorial level, and I admit, the graphics did still look good, not OMG my eyes are going to explode good, but more than good enough.
