Khabal Gaming has posted their review of Arx Fatalis, giving it a 7/10. Here's a snippet:

Forever in a funny box

As always, perfection is an impossible task. To make things worse, this game imparts a feeling of claustrophobia, such that you constantly feel trapped in a box that varies in distance and height.

Also, since everything is underground, and all paths are linear, there is not much lateral exploration. But then, that is actually a good thing, because the game has a tricky and clumsy jump mechanism: It?s hard to be a sword-wielding do-gooder Mario. There are also some path finding and collision detection glitches that enable you to get stuck when climbing a slope or some steps and this is prevalent even with the 1.15 patch.​

Jump puzzles should stay in platform games, where they're actually fun.
