Fragland have posted a review of Arx Fatalis. They give the game an overall score of 81.5%, although you should probably note that the reviewer is not an RPG player, and admits to having little or no experience in games of this genre.
Here's a quick look:
Sound and Vision:
For me this is the best thing of the game: as the story progresses mostly in dark enviroments you will be faced with actual darkness (even with lighting torches the game still looks exrtemely dark) and the constant flow of background noise only gives it more tension. Because of my less than up to specs system I was not able to enjoy the full strength of the graphical engine, but even with my lower setting everything was nice without being foto realistic, something that in my opinion is not really needed. I do have to mention that the background noise is sometimes a bit too loud and overpowers the conversations, but in my opinion they are not that disturbing because you have subtitles to compensate.
I still haven't played this one yet, I haven't been too fussed about it. I guess I'll probably pick it up at some point...
