I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

M What do these ratings mean?

This game is really a buried treasure. It was an excellent and break through game back in it's day and even today it can be a fun simple experience. Controlling 13 different characters in the game (one main character and 12 others) it makes the whole game a fresh and remarkable experience. You are a character to finds her grandfather dead and must find out the secrets in his mansion. She comes across a book called the Tome of Darkness and as she reads it you play each character in the chapter and have to solve unique, yet simple, puzzles and fight many different zombies and baddies. What's different here though is that the combat is very simple yet is very customizable since you can lock on and de-limb enemies and even cut off their heads. Yes its very rewarding and neat to see. You can pick up many different weapons through out the game and you can even cast magic spells. I LOVE the way this game does the magic since you have to find Runes and them Tomes to decrypt them and Runes can be inside enemies that you have to defeat and you find Tomes in many different ways. I also love how when the main character reads each chapter those spells you learned go to her and its amazing how each chapter coincides with the next and how it all ties together. I have never seen a game do something like this so well. The score isn't as great as it should be is because its 2007 and you can see ALLL the flaws in this game and its just too shallow compared to games we play now. Even so, its good for a quick, you can beat it in about 10-12 hours, and unique experience. The game does give you a few quick scares but is nothing close to scary or creepy really. If you have a Wii or GameCube and are wanting something simple and easy to play pick this up!
