About This Game

This critically acclaimed first-person RPG takes the player on an amazing journey into the fantasy world of Arx. The game mixes intelligent story with immersive and actual medieval surroundings. Arx Fatalis allows the player to feel that all his actions have a direct consequence on those around him.

The goal of the game is to destroy the secret cult of Akbaa, the god of destruction. As a player, you must prevent the return of such a cruel creature to the physical world. Should you fail, Akbaa is bound to impose its terror upon the world of Arx.

You will become the hero of an underground world - with weapons, spells and magical items to defend against goblins, trolls, rat-men and other vicious opponents.

Besides brute force, stealth and the "onscreen gesture based magic system" are the three alternative ways to succeed. Using the mouse, flaming runes can be drawn in mid-air. A combination of these gestures can create powerful magic spells that will protect you or empower you to defeat opponents and pursue the quest.

System Requirements

    Minimum: Windows XP, 500 MHz Pentium ® III or compatible, 64 MB RAM , DirectX 8 or higher, DirectX 8 compatible sound- and graphics card with 16 MB, 750 MB fixed disks

    Recommended: 900 MHz Pentium ® III or compatible, 256 MB RAM , DirectX 8 or higher, DirectX 8 compatible sound- and graphics card with 32MB, 750 MB fixed disks

Great game, the combat is fun and the story is pretty good, the only real problems I have had with this game are a bit clunky controls, bad voice acting, and the magic sometimes doesnt respond, but those arent that bad, this is a great game. 7.5/10 (btw i havent been able to play the steam shortcut because of the error so i needed to use the patched verson).

One of the greatest RPG ever made. And one of the rare RPG to be both in first person and real-time.

It's very immersive and aged quite well graphically.
The music is weird and very good. In fact that would describe the whole game setting.
It's an original world that's fun to discover and a lot of NPCs and quests are kinda funny.

The world is semi-open and you can build your character as you like (no predefined classes).

While disorienting at first, the controls are actually clever and the spell system is very unique (you have to draw magic symbols with your mouse in the correct order, yes, you have to actually *learn* spells).

It's my second favourite game, next to Morrowind :)

When I first played it took me a while to get the hang of the controls as it is quite different from your standard control layout. The unique casting technique is not very sensitive and this causes some difficulty in-game. Other than the controls the game is actually one of my favourite RPG's.

Starting off with the cliché 'escape the dungeon' doesn't matter with this game, the storyline makes up for it. As for the storyline... well mystery, war and everything else a good RPG needs. If your looking for a RPG to remember this is the one!

An amatuer first attempt by people with great taste.
Its fairly rough and linear RPG, A few bad puzzles, Bad voice acting and writing, A somewhat broken spell casting system, Not so great combat, And its quite buggy without the Arx Libertatis mod.

So why do I love it?
Its an RPG that isnt a border line shooter, Its not a sprawling 1000x1000 km world with 10,000 boring filler fetch quests or hours and hours of mind numbing combat.

Its a smaller world with a quest thats straight to the point, Its a great setting, very atmospheric and fun to explore.
It has the aesthetics of games like Thief and Ultima Underworld.

An awesome game depsite its roughness.

Was entertaining until I found out that every time I interacted with the opening goblin level, that stupid opening cut scene would play and drop me off in the damn opening cell. Until that issue is fixed, I'm going to have to give it a thumbs down. I will admit that up until that point the game seemed kinda fun...

It's a bit of a mess. Very clunky controls and the magic system doesn't seem to work even after the unofficial patch.

You can cast the motions and get your character pronouncing the words but nothing happens.
Theres probably a way around this but none of the posts I've seen have had an answer for me.

Maybe get it on sale and see if it works on your rig?

Playing Arx Fatalis after searching for a good game in the seemingly endless pool of high budget, nowadays products is shocking! There is more content, better gameplay and much more intense atmosphere in 600 MBs than in a few GBs and Millions of Dollars invested in modern games. Everything is refreshing and interesting: Starting from the real-time casting system, over the immersive and often funny dialouges to the intelligent and well thought quests. For the rediculous price that it's currently sold on steam I don't even need to loose myself into details. There is a dedicated community that created a patch called "Arx Libertatis" which fixes a few bugs and adjust the resolution to modern PCs. (The patch btw is the reason why I have less than 2 hours on record).
This game is by far the best thing I have come across in the past 10 years that I have been looking for a good RPG.

A gem of a game from a period when developers built games from their hearts and their games didn't hold the players hand all the way through the game. Experience true freedom, rebel sends you to fetch her something in return for a ring you want? STEAL THE RING, then GIVE IT BACK for a reward! go pretty much anywhere as soon as the game starts (though some places might require certain spells). Magic system is the best magic system I've ever used - creative and intuitive as long as you realize that each rune is a word and sentences are the spells.

No quest marks. No tagged quest items. Minimal quest tracking. Use you head, you'll figure this ♥♥♥♥ out.

How did this game not get a sequel?

One of the greatest dungeon crawls ever created. Arx Fatalis has been in my top ten favourite games since release.

Some of the highlights:
---------------------------
- Logical, somewhat realistic inventory crafting & recipes. Experimentation is a must!
- An unsurpassed magic system; Logical combinations of words have different effects.
- More atmosphere than you can shake a stick at! A truly claustrophobic underground world.
- A 'hardcore' mentality in an easy to pick up and play game; no hand-holding, thought required!
- Some of the puzzles are FANTASTIC.
- Lots of varied locations, items and secrets to discover.


Some of the low points:
--------------------------
- It's an OLD game. Without the Arx Libertatis mod (link below) it's actually unplayable, in a very literal sense.
- Wasn't the best looking game when it released, hasn't changed. Not UGLY, but by no means pretty.
- The melee combat is CLUNKY. It's a chore to fight tough enemies at times if you're a sword & board player.
- The story is typical of games of the period, and riddled with cliché.


While from an outside glance it would seem practically dead and unsupported, there is a hard-working team at http://wiki.arx-libertatis.org that have been patching the game since 2011, with the most recent Dev version being
released on their site in Dec 2015! I really look forward to seeing if they manage to upgrade the physics engine and adapt it for modding support (some of their end goals), as Arx would have new life breathed into it!

A diamond in the rough for sure, but Arx Fatalis is a classic that snuck right under a lot of peoples' noses. Years after release, the developers have continued to support this game, patching it to run on modern systems/resolutions, and even releaseing the source code.

It is still up in the air if the now heavily Kick Started Ultima Underworld successor "Underworld Ascendent" will live up to its bluster, but in the meantime Arx Fatalis is definately worth some of your time.

Good old open world RPG dungeon crawling that feels like Ultima Underworld. The locales and story reflect this sort of atmosphere. There's a lot of stuff to do, some cool abilities to fool around with, and quests that will make the player explore almost every nook and cranny in the game. The sidequests are fun, and don't feel overly compulsory. There are a lot of interesting little puzzles peppered throughout as well, which excellently showcase the model and texture creativity allowed with the game's engine.

Three complaints:

1 - It's very buggy. The game crashes when I wander into the path of an NPC, which happens at least every 10 minutes. Transparent textures render as pitch-black voids. Quests can be broken. Objects and characters can get pushed through objects. Enemies can get stuck on thin air, and this was usually how I ended up beating bosses.

2 - Artificial difficulty. This is not a term I typically use, but I'll make an exception here, because this game undeniably has it. The magic system is an example. I understand the need to have some kind of complex output for magic, given just how useful it is, but drawing out signs with the mouse is like doing so in Microsoft Paint. Even when I know how to do it, it takes, like, 5 tries before I create perfect shapes with the exact angles and straight lines. Meanwhile, the enemies can pinch 'em out in a matter of one or two seconds, but the enemies themselves are a different story. This is one of those games where "difficult enemy" means, that guy hits hard and has a lot of health. There's nothing wrong with strong bad guys, but making this the basis of difficulty for every boss and upper-level enemy in the game is just lazy. There is no strategy, just run in a circle until I manage to draw a perfect spell, turn around, fire it, rinse and repeat. Or, I suppose another option is to quickload until my opponent spawns in stuck and I can take my sweet time.

3 - A lack of explanation. This partially works to the game's benefit, making for quests that actually feel rewarding and puzzles that feel challenging, unlike certain games (coughSkyrimcough), but this stops being fun when the game takes too many liberties with this approach. I can deal with a spell in my quest log instead of my spellbook. What I can't deal with is having certain dialogues and cutscenes postponed simply, say, because I haven't talked to a specific NPC, despite the fact that I already had the information I needed from reading a book, but no, I have to talk this person and hear what I already know, because it will trigger the next dialogue sequence with another character I had already gone to visit in an unfruitful attempt to advance the quest! This sort of situation is where the discrepancy happens, where the player is caught between the limited information provided by the quest log, and what action needs to be taken to progress. It results in a lot of pointless running around and wasted time.

Overall, I have somewhat positive feelings for the game. It's by no means perfect, but may have both the gameplay and atmosphere to appeal to more seasoned RPG players, specifically those who don't mind a few hiccups.

If you dug Morrowind's oppressive atmosphere (and ultimately totally op magic) but want a far more narrowly-focused experience with sexy snake women, a surprisingly immersive gesture-based magic casting system. Simple trolls wearing sumo diapers - then you have very specific tastes, and while this game does provide those things, you should probably lower your standards in general for your own wellbeing.
You lovable nut.

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 is definitely a title I'd say is "underrated". It's a relatively obscure RPG title that gives a fairly interesting setting and good mechanics.

The game is good overall, but it's definitely rough around the edges.

PROS:

The game is pretty immersive, with full first person and complete view of limbs and equipment. There are plenty of things to loot, plenty of things to kill. The game is also very atmospheric: lots of dank caves with dark ambience playing. The RPG elements are mostly good, but there's not much character interaction, no real dialogue trees. I have a lot of fun exploring dungeons in the game, they can go pretty deep and pretty wide. There are lots of immersive touches, like having to drag things manually into the inventory, to manually drawing runes to cast spells, to even staking zombies to make sure they stay dead. It helps make the game feel alive.
_____

CONS:

The game barely conveys any information to the player; I've had to rely on walkthroughs extensively. The journal is worthless, it tells nothing about current tasks or reminders of where to go. If important details from dialogue are missed, they can't be found again. Navigation is nightmarish as there are no clear paths to get to locations, everything is located on separate underground levels. The game also is unbalanced in terms of combat and specialization. Playing as a thief or as just a warrior is suicidal, as a certain kind of enemy late-game cannot be easily killed with brute force. I had to restart my game to play as a sort of battlemage build, and now everything is easier.

_____

It's a pretty mixed bag overall. If one likes RPGs with somewhat original settings, compelling mechanics, plenty of immersion, and plenty of loot, then this game is good if one can look past the glaring flaws.

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)

Arx Fatalis awesome awesomeness

one of my favorite rpg´s, innovative gameplay as a sample how you can interact:

" Bottle of Water + Flour = Bread Dough + Rolling Pin = Uncooked Pie + Apple = Uncooked Apple Pie + Bottle of Wine = Uncooked Apple Pie with Wine + Source of Heat = Apple Pie with Wine " one of many things you can combine in the game world.

The game world is authentic and its very exciting to explore.

Atmosphere is great and often creepier than Stalker.

Story is Epic and better than gothic 1 (gothic1 is my *1) sidequest´s are very nice too.

The game with the most dense atmosphere I ever experienced. Intresting scenario and story, plus very specific controls.
I can recommend this game for any RPG and adventure-games fans, but only if you can look past the very old graphics.
ATTENTION! Arx Fatalis doesn't work well on newer PCs and crashes very often, but luckily the free patch Arx Libetatis fixes all the bugs.
