CVG on Arx Fatalis

There's a review of Arx Fatalis up on Computer and Video Games, inevitably comparing it to the game it tries to be, Ultima Underworld. Here's a bit of it:

Arx Fatalis features some incredibly casual gameplay. There are no hit-and-run assaults, everything takes place at a leisurely pace from the moment you leave your cell right up to the point where you enter the city of Arx itself and find out your destiny (or the game's idea of what your destiny should be). Rest assured though, it's not long after you enter the city that things start to heat up. There's huge depth in terms of exploration and masses to discover while wandering the lush landscape, with a multitude of NPCs to converse with (although some of them are somewhat reluctant to say anything of use) and some great plot twists to discover. In the early stages there seems to be little plot development, but with a little perseverance you'll soon uncover all kinds of sinister goings- on if you have the patience to wait that long. And believe me, you're going to want to, as Arx is filled with exciting combat and tricky puzzles to keep you engrossed throughout.​

The review goes on to say the game drips atmosphere, but the dialogue and combat in the game are overly simplistic.

Spotted this at Shack News.
