Just took a survey from Ubisoft that had all to do with Dark Messiah and what I disliked and liked, at the end they asked... "If a Sequel was to be made would you be interested in it?"... I so said yes.... I loved the original and would love to see more come out of it.

Interesting.

I thought it was a good game but it didn't really blow me away. I wish they would just go ahead and start working on Arx Fatalis 2. THAT is what I really want.

If they didn't have plans to work on an Arx 2 I would definitely vote for a DM 2 though.

DMoMM felt like a good timewaster, not much more. It had no strong points making it stand out from the rest.

The melee system was not that good (condemned did it better).
The RPG mechanics was bad.
The story was not that original (rather cliché).
The game was completely linear.
And the graphics was not spectacular either.

If there was a sequel I would probably read the reviews first to make sure I would give it a chance or not.

I sort of agree on all those points. None of its good points were real strong but it was a pretty good game.

Definitely a 7\10 for me. I'd play the sequel but I'd also hope for a lot more depth and freedom (which makes it more like Arx I guess).

I actually liked that it didn't feel too RPGish. It was a nice blend of Fantasy FPS and RPG elements but nothing too deep to slow the game down.

Yes more! But less Zombies and spiders and more orcs and humans!

Have no clue why this game was bashed by so many review sites. I found it a great game overall; 87/100. This game is like Halflife2 in a Mid evil/Magic world. The ability to actually use different weapon strike areas, combos, objects and attacks is fantastic in this game.

How people can say the combat got boring I'll never know. Nothing was overly complex yet the variety of weapon and 'death' options were more numerous than most any other game.

Only things I disliked were the boss battles (I hate all boss crap), subpar gfx and the very linear levels; an open Oblivion world would have been so kick ass.

Bring on DM2, yeah!!

The game looked like a linear version of Oblivion, but it really did look awesome. It's a very fun game. I wouldn't mind seeing a #2 of it. :)

Well hopefully we wont have to wait long. Well maybe for #2, but I've seen the odd rumour of an expansion for the first game. :D

WTF WeReWoLf? what are we doing up at 7:45 on a Sunday? Shouldn't we be sleeping in? :p

This game was decent. It gave something to do while waiting for new rpg's. I won't say it was a great game but it was fun.
