Om detta spel

Det här kritikerrosade rollspelet i förstapersonsperspektiv tar spelaren med på en otrolig resa i fantasivärlden Arx. Spelet kombinerar intelligent handling med äkta medeltida miljöer. I Arx Fatalis känner spelaren av att alla hans handlingar har en direkt inverkan på de som finns i närheten.

Målet är att utplåna den hemliga kulten som dyrkar Akbaa – förstörelsens gud. Som spelare ska du förhindra att den här onda varelsen får tillträde till vår fysiska värld. Om du misslyckas kommer Akbaa att påtvinga Arx sitt terrorvälde.

Du blir hjälte i en underjordisk värld, med vapen, trollformler och magiska föremål för att skydda dig mot dvärgar, troll, råttmänniskor och andra ondskefulla motståndare.

Förutom ren styrka kan du även använda dig av smygtaktik och ett rörelsebaserat magiskt system på skärmen för att lyckas. Med musen kan du rita brinnande runor i luften. En kombination av sådana rörelser kan skapa kraftfulla trollformler som skyddar dig eller ger dig mer styrka för att bekämpa fienden och slutföra ditt uppdrag.

Challenging and highly atmospheric, if also heavily flawed, dungeon crawler/immersive sim that is in many ways highly reminiscent of Looking Glass Studios classics. You'll journey trough decaying underground world filled with dark ritual, bloodthirsty enemies and eldritch horrors.
Patience, experimentation and careful exploration are often rewarded, and also quite often -required- in a way that is rarely seen in modern games: Arx offers little to no hand holding to players during their journey through its sprawling, interconnected dungeons - thorough exploration and paying attention to clues and readables are keys to making any sort of progress!
Game isn't without flaws tho: magic system, while original and also quite impressive in a sheer number of offered spells and their possible effects, is also somewhat clunky, and spellcasting is often unresponsive. Controls & interface in general will take some time to get used to.
While game offers to player a freedom to develop his character in many possible directions, some skills are definitely far more useful than others, and some playstyles are far less developed than others. Stealth system for example is quite unrefined, and while it is sometimes useful and at some points borderline required to sneak (say early encounters with dreaded Ylside warriors), stealth tends to be rather useless and unsatisfying.
There is quite a bit of different types of fun-to-use melee weapons, each with their own pros and cons. Ranged combat on the other hand, while quite useful at times, is made unnecessarily monotonous by the fact that the player is offered all of -two- bows, second one being pretty much unreachable on first playthrough without any outside help.
Still, I'd say this game's assorted shortcomings are -very much- worth dealing with, and are far, FAR outweighed by its many qualities.

Pretty much recommended to anyone with some patience and willingness to deal with game's flaws and idiosyncrasies.

Also, i highly recommend using Arx Libertatis: it offers additional bug fixes and eliminates issues with modern hardware.

This game is absolutely amazing. For the game from the year 2002 it has really interesting mechanics, the whole casting by drawing spells is an interesting idea. The cooking mechanics are also something I didn't see in any other RPG yet.

Recently I installed it again because I discovered the Arx Liberatis mod that fixes the game for the modern computers (adds FullHD resolution, fixes spell casting - be sure to have v-sync on)

Please don't look at my ingame-time. Steam didn't count it correctly and I've played the game back when it was released ... for at least 100 hours. Seriously, I'm almost speechless when thinking about this game. The only thing I feel is love. Very strong love. Arx Fatalis was actually one of my very first games and back then I loved everything about the game: The design, the sounds, the characters, the gameplay, the dark world, the spells - and I still do. Even though this game is "old" now, it still is a masterpiece. Everything fits perfectly together. Of course, there are some bugs and glitches in the game and the gameplay has some bad things about it but still: It works and it's absolutely fun.

Everyone: Please just give this game a chance. It's worth it. Especially for ~5€.

By the way: I was very happy when I found out that Arx Fatalis was made by the same guys who made Dishonored as I really love this game too.

Good old classics. Interesting magic system (really interesting, but sometimes quite challenging). But crashes a lot - save as often as you can

There’s no school like the old school, and Arx Fatalitis is the headmaster!

NOTICE: when I first booted the game up o steam, ithad the worst frame rate I’ve ever seen. Luckily, I got a free and simple mod called Arx Liberatis, and now it runs fun. However, my steam account still only says I’ve played 20 minutes, while in reality I’ve lost many a fond hour crawling around in here.

Arx Fatalitis is a very old school dungeon crawler. Despite being over a decade old, it looks ‘not bad’, and boasts a very immersive and claustrophobic atmosphere that harkens back to the early 90s era of PC roleplaying games. It feels very, how should I say, ‘beardy’, in that it is not action-packed (combat is very clunky too) but instead you have use logic and reason to solve problems. It is a slow paced game, but that slow pace is just brilliant. You actually feel drawn into the subterranean world of Arx and invested in its existence as you mince down musty mines and goblin fortresses. There’s a fair amount of camp too, especially in the dialogue, but again that camp suits the game brilliantly. My favourite is a goblin chef with a sleazy French accent.

However, let it also be said that Arx is not a game which holds your hand. You always have a clear objective, but it is not always easy to find out how to accomplish it. Also, the game is packed with secrets and optional content, but it will take a careful and thoughtful eye to notice most of it.

As for criticisms, well, the only one that really stood out was that the combat (after playing Skyrim especially) is chunkier than clunky clunk-dom. This makes it challenging, sure, but I miss the fluidity and responsiveness of Skyrim. Second, the maps down really tell you were the exits lead to; if I didn’t play the game for a few days I’d be hopelessly lost and couldn’t remember how to get back to some places I’d been to before.

All in all, for the paltry £2 I paid for this, Arx Fatalitis is brilliant game, the kind we don’t really see anymore. If you like old school PC rpgs and don’t mind the clunky combat, give it a go.
