Riguardo questo gioco

Nove divinità. Nove eroi. E solo un campione. La Grecia Mitologica. Terra di dei, poeti, eroi, ma anche di mostri orrendi e creature spaventose.

'Numen' è un action RPG completamente tridimensionale ambientato nella Grecia dei miti. Il giocatore controlla uno dei nove eroi, i quali, nel nome degli dei, danno grande prova del proprio valore. Eroi che si cimentano in pellegrinaggi tra le montagne più alte, che attraversano le profondità di valli, foreste e cripte sotterranee, e che non temono le sabbie arse dal sole dei deserti.

'Numen', tuttavia, non è un mero hack-and-slash: offre al giocatore l'opportunità di compiere scelte tattiche, individuando i punti deboli del nemico e selezionando di conseguenza l'arma più adeguata. 'Numen' ricompensa coloro si dimostrino in grado di adattarsi alle situazioni mutevoli del campo di battaglia. In tal senso, il giocatore è agevolato dal dio venerato, che gli conferisce poteri e abilità uniche, testimoniando la sua disposizione favorevole. D'altro canto, gli dei dell'Olimpo, sono celebri per la loro natura crudele e imprevedibile...

  • Action RPG forte di una storia intrigante e colpi di scena sbalorditivi.
  • Design 3D estremamente dettagliato, con effetti visivi all'avanguardia.
  • Il mondo del gioco, basato sulla Grecia Mitologica, comprende decine di location sparse su 12 isole, con tanto di esterni e labirinti sotterranei.
  • Alla vasta storia principale si affiancano le numerose ampie missioni secondarie.
  • Personalizza il tuo eroe: scegli il genere sessuale, la sua specializzazione tra tre alternative, nonché una delle nove divinità per il suo culto.
  • Grandi quantità di armi, armature e oggetti unici; più di 80 incantesimi e abilità.
  • Duelli in arene, combattimenti d'allenamento, e tornei.

I enjoyed this game quite a bit. I bought it back around the time it released for full price, and I never regretted it. And even now years later I look back fondly on this game.
I think I may play it again as one of the other classes...
You can choose three basic classes - warrior, ranger, mage. Later on you get to choose your god based on which class you choose (3 per class iirc). These choices add certain other abilities. But they do not seem to make a ton of difference from what I saw. But it was still a neat idea.

The game is fairly basic, and the combat lacks weight (feels like you are hitting air).
But If you enjoy MMOs or mythology, you will probably enjoy this. It does not take a lot of time to finish it (30 hrs, and I am one of thos egamers that explores every nook and cranny and goes back to previous areas to re-explore after important plot events).

It is a good in between game while you are waiting for something else to release.

The story was nothing spectacular, but definitely enough to keep me wanting to see more. I was definitely engaged.

It's not a good RPG, but it's not a total catastrophe either... The item and level grinding is boring, it lacks in story and especially in side quests and the level 'design' is pretty much non-existant. Most of the game looks more random than Diablo while it isn't. While the game isn't a complete waste of time and has some moments, the lack of speech for the few NPCs, the mindnumbing and pointless arena fights and a lot of other small details make the game very dull and sometimes tedious to play. There's just so many better Diablo clones around and this one is hardly worth anybody's time. The final battle is a joke compared to the other boss fights. So many design flaws in one game that it's almost a candidate for a rotten tomato award... Unless you're extremely bored and have nothing better to play, stay away from this game.

Recensione di una copia anticipata
Numen: Contest of Heroes basically plays like a single player MMO, complete with hotkey bar, ability cooldowns, and combat that doesn't feel like it's quite connecting. It isn't a great game, but it's at least a decent one, and well worth the huge sale prices I've seen it (currently $0.99 as I write this review.) I myself picked it up for $7.50 soon after release, and don't really regret it, though $5 or less is the sweet spot here IMO.

The introductory / tutorial section is pretty boring, but persevere and the game becomes more enjoyable later. You start out as a kid, and through a few quests learn the basics of the three primary classes - Warrior, Archer and Mage. At the end of the tutorial you get to pick which of the three classes you want to become, and appear as a leveled up adult with only the abilities of the chosen class. At the same time you also pick which God to worship, granting you additional abilities and bonuses, which increase as you make your God more proud of you through your actions.

Then it's standard fantasy RPG fare. You go on quests, trigger events which advance the plotline, unlock new areas and make more quests available, kill monsters to level up and get better loot, and eventually kill the final boss and beat the game. You encounter other heroes along the way and choose whether to help, hinder or ignore them. And there's an Arena tournament event where you can fight these heroes as well.

The balance seems a bit off in some areas. A couple times you can be thrown into a new area severely underlevelled for the enemies, and have to grind before you can take on more than one of them at a time. Then 3/4 of the way through you find that 90% of your attacks are critical hits and enemies don't stand a chance as long as you don't get careless.

Overall I'd recommend the game when it's on sale, though not at the base $9.99 price.

I will only reccommend this game to people playing RPGs on a budget. I'm sure you can get this game for a dollar during a sale, and I'd say it's worth it at that point. Besides that, it's a low-budget, not quite horrendous but still not-good RPG with an ancient Greek aesthetic. For some reason, it plays exactly like an MMO in spite of its being single-player only, and the titular contest comes down to you dueling one or two NPCs over the course of the game. But if the struggle is real, there are far worse games to spend a dollar on.

I really like this game.

It looked to me like an arena fighting game at first glance so I always ignored it. I bought it on sale for 79 cents on a whim and I'm sure glad I did.

It looks like Titans Quest, but It plays very much like an MMO. Tab targeting, auto-attack, skills hotbar, camps of mobs you have to carefully pull, etc. If you aren't in to MMO-style combat, you may not like this. The combat reminds me of Vanguard and several others. Fights are quicker though, mobs your level usually die in 10-15 seconds.

The leveling is relatively fast so far. I've been playing about 6 hours and am level 31. I did grind out a couple of levels once to make an area easier, but it only took about 10 minutes.

A big plus for me is that there are 16 item slots, including four ring slots. I prefer many slots and slower upgrades rather than constant upgrades to 6 or 8 slots.

One of the things I didn't like about it are the slow walking speed when you first start the game as a child. But once you leave the tutorial island and become an adult, the walking speed is very good.

Another thing I don't care for is the day/night system. You have to find a campfire to rest, with the option of resting to restore stamina only, or until morning or evening. It seemed like I had to rest until night time to make one quest mob appear but there was no indication of this that I saw so I roamed around looking for him before trying to wait until night time. So far, this was the only time day or night mattered, other than picking some flowers on the tutorial island, and you are told to do that at night.

The last thing is the save system. You can only save at one of the campfires. There are plenty of them around so this is not a big issue for me, but a "save anywhere" would be nice.

I only went to the arena for a few minutes and it was kind of weird and not all that fun, so hopefully it'll be mostly optional.

The graphics are on par with most MMO graphics and the sound is adequate but there is not a lot of music.

Having finished all other RPG's that interest me, and being between MMO's at the moment, I'm having a lot of fun with this. I would have easily paid the full $7.99 for it had I realized what it actually was.


1) I finished the game in 13 hours at level 80.

2) The arena is optional. I never went there again and only lost a little favor with the gods for missing a tournament.

3) The night/day thing was not a big deal. There are 3-4 times someone or something will only appear at night.

4) A couple of the quests are a bit vague. I consulted a walkthrough a few times.

5) It did crash on me twice, both times after saving and entering a new zone.

It was still probably the most fun I've ever had for 79 cents, and is well worth even full price, imo, if you can overlook a few minor issues.
