Arcanum praised at MyGamer

MyGamer has posted one of those better-late-then-never reviews of Arcanum, giving it 8/10, and using words like unrivaled, masterful, and amazing to describe it.
If you can see past the gritty surface of Arcanum you will discover a game with possibly the single most incredible storyline, quest system, and character-dynamic world featured in any RPG to date. I remember the first time I played Arcanum, I thought it was total garbage, but once I understood the inner workings of the character dynamics and the magnificent storyline tied beautifully to the game worldâ€”well, I couldnâ€™t put it down. Since the game is different virtually every time you play, the replay value is immeasurable due to the endless possibility of character types, via mixing and matching. A mod system and mod-based multiplayer can also add to the value of the game if you can find some other Arcanum players who are interested in â€˜team-bashingâ€™. Arcanum is a superior purchase, reminiscent of the combat style seen in Diablo 2 combined with a Final Fantasy 3 caliber storyline. Itâ€™s a must for absolutely any RPG fan.
I'm not sure I'd describe Arcanum like that, but it's definitely a great game, so pick it up if you haven't already.
