      With a few bucks in my pocket, I set out for a new video game to pass the time. Of course, at the time, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic was around $50.00, but to this current day, this game sells for just $9.99!

      So if you have ten bucks, a decent PC, and really want something to pass the time nicely, then I suggest grabbing Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. But first, let me convince you why!

      Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, let’s call it DM for short, is like a cross between The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and a First Person Shooter. If you are unfamiliar with The Elder Scrolls series then lets dive deeper…

      DM is in a medieval fantasy universe with trolls, ogres, goblins, ghouls, warriors, knights, assassins, and of course magic!

      You play an eager apprentice named Sareth, to the mage Phenrig. He has you set out in great adventures ranging from common human cities, to spider caverns, lost runs, and orc sanctuaries.

      Now in between all this, there is a story, a decent story I might add, with a nice plot twist at the end. On top of that there are actually two different endings, and a tiny morel system that will lead you to either of the endings depending on your decisions in game.

      So you now know the basics, but how do I perform these “tasks?” Well the main character, Sareth, is an apprentice… So in DM there is a levelling system that lets you pick passive skills, and aggressive spells that really increase the replay value. These also make the game a blast.

      • There are effectively three different classes you can be in DM. These are your typical “hack n slash” warrior, fire tossing mage, and stealthy rogue. Though these classes are distinct and different, if you choose, you can be a fireball tossing rogue, or a frost throwing warrior. It’s up to you because Sareth really is a jack of all trades.

        You can be these fun combinations because after each level, or mission you receive skill points. These skills can be used to get, you guessed it, new skills! All of these range from reducing footsteps, to wielding certain weapons, and even sneaking behind an enemy and stabbing them in the back.

        I really should mention that this game is rated M, for Mature players only. This means you “should” be 18 or

        older before playing it because this game has lots of violence, blood, and scary creatures it it that could give a youngster a crazy nightmare or two.

        As I said before, this game plays like The Elder Scrolls series, but also as a First Person Shooter. When I say First Person Shooter, I mean that you play as if you are Sareth. You effectively see what Sareth sees, and can even push your mouse down to see his armour, and legs. However, for the most part, you will see some intense sword action, bright magic spells, and satisfying stealth mechanics.

        Now before I leave you, I simply must ask you to search Dark Messiah of Might and Magic in YouTube to check out some gameplay. If not, then at least play the free demo of the game!
