Good first person RPG hack & slash journey

The Good

The graphics are superb and the sword control is like no other. All settings are adjustable for difficulty, graphics, gamma correction and sound.

The Bad

Due to the extreme manueverability of the sword play, it takes a while to get the hang of it, but once mastered it works fine.

The Bottom Line

This is a fine first person RPG in the style of Doom, but not near as complex. You, as a knight, will explore vast areas and with quite a unique sword control will hack monsters to pieces. There are a lot of bloody body parts flying in this game. I recommend it highly to all who appreciate the adventures of a knight with plenty of virtual realism.
