Nine deities. Nine heroes. And only one champion. Mythical Greece. The land of gods, poets, heroes, but also of terrible monsters and creatures.

Numen is a fully three-dimensional action RPG set in mythical Greece. The player controls one of nine heroes, who in the name of the gods they follow compete in a grand test of their capabilities. Heroes who undertake a pilgrimage over the highest mountains, through valleys and deep forests, underground vaults and the scorched sand of deserts.

Numen however is no mere hack-and-slash game. It offers the player the possibility of tactical decision making, searching for enemies’ weak spots, selection of adequate weapons. It rewards those who are able to adapt to the changing situation on the battlefield. In this the player is helped by the unique powers and abilities invested in him or her by the god he or she follows, provided that the god is happy with him or her. The Olympian gods, after all, are renowned for their wanton and unpredictable nature…

  • Action RPG with strong and intriguing storyline and surprising plot turns.
  • Detailed 3D design with state-of-the-art visual effects.
  • The game world based on the Greek mythology comprises of tens of locations situated on 12 islands with both exteriors and underground labyrinths.
  • Many extensive main story and side quests.
  • Select your hero‘s gender, his or her specialization out of three possibilities and one of nine deities for him or her to worship.
  • Plenty of unique weapons, armors and items, more than 80 spells and abilities.
  • Arena duels, training combats and tournaments.

I've been trying really hard to like this game from the moment that I started playing. With each passing encounter, with each newly introduced event, with each new NPC speaking and each logic flaw in either narrative or combat; my task grew to become harder and harder. Finally, I give up. This is the day that I'll leave an RPG unfinished.

As the curtain opens, we watch a cinematic about a legendary artifact; the Sickle of Chronos being stolen. Then, we choose between two 12 year old siblings - one male and one female - to take as our character, and begin playing a pesteringly long, somewhat illogical and predictable prequel story. By the end of the prequel, our "hero" is given the "choice" of becoming the champion of one of the 9 Olympian Gods to compete in a contest. If she/he prevails, her/his one wish will be granted by the gods. To accomplish this deed, our hero is sent to the Island of Machantar to the main temple of his/her deity. After that point, our hero will venture out on an unending journey of hack & slash to acquire that accursed sickle.

Numen: Contest of Heroes is a single player 3D RPG in a run on the mill MMO model - which is based on fetch quests or killing a certain amount of monsters to get a certain drop - with the skill bar, mobs to kill and levels to gain. You slay monsters, gain level and loot, travel to new areas with tougher monsters and so on and on... which would be quite alright if it wouldn't be for a couple of downers. To begin with, the storyline is botched, with you always ending up aimlessly wandering around to try and discover "what to do next". Quest indicators fail to present pointers or direct towards locations. Any and all areas of the game are open, so it wouldn't differ whether you are level 20 or 80, you can always find a mob to get yourself killed by accidentally.

There is a monstrous imbalance between classes; warrior being overpowering, mage being somewhat decent and archer being completely pointless. Skill and item usage are completely laggy; you end up pushing a hot key 2-3 times before the game decides to cast that spell and by then - guess what? - You are usually dead. There is no actual lore to gods or no differentiating factor between gods, so your choice of whomever you decided to follow there is somewhat irrelevant. The game fails to deliver any kind of authentic lore: there are Greek names and figures thrown around, bravo. As if that would be enough for a setting. Aside the main scenario - and a vague one at that - side quests are not many, and they end up popping around in completely imbalanced levels. Dialogue is forced, unimaginative and usually contains a couple of typos anyhow. Arena battles or tournaments rely on luck and how laggy your casting would be instead of actual skill and reflexes. Oh, and as far as atmosphere goes: graphics and textures are okay - with no facial or physical customization option for your character, and the soundtrack decides to take long pauses of silence as you play for no apparent reason.

Phew, sorry. I hate being thoroughly this negative, but Numen: Contest of Heroes would be a somewhat acceptable MMORPG. As a single player RPG, it fails to deliver either interest in story, any character or scenario involvement, decent game or combat mechanics or basically any good time. I remember having better time with Metin 2. That was multiplayer at least. When I bought this game, it was on sale for 99 cents so it's not a big loss, but if you are interested in an Action RPG in a Greek Setting, Titan Quest is most definitely a better choice. Good day.

Игра по сути ММО в оффлайне. Графика ужасна даже для 2009 года, квесты примитивнейшие в стиле поди и убей. После каждой смерти героя все монстра респятся во всех посещенных локациях, тонны глупейшего текста, типа - Кто это стоит перед вами? Прааавильно, торговец! Какой вы умненький! (facepalm). В общем, не стоит эта игра вообще ничего тк любая мало мальски ftp попрошайка в стократ красивее и интереснее. А если привлекает подобная тематика для РПГшек то лучше поиграйте в Titan Quest.
