The Entertainment Depot has been stocked up with a review of 'Arx Fatalis' for XBox. Rating: 7.5/10.
Starting out, Arx Fatalis might not be overly impressive. Creating a hero entails allocating skill points to four major categories (strength, mental, dexterity, and constitution), then using a few more points to enhance sub-traits (intuition, stealth, close combat, etc.); these sub-traits are tied into the major ones by getting large increases when one of the four are selected to enhance, but the additional points that goes only for them allows for tailoring the character to how the player would like. After all of the points are spent, the only real choice left to make the character unique is to select of five faces. Console fans aren't used to too much character creating, so it's not likely that so few options will disappoint. Once character creation is done, the player selects either normal or easy difficulty, and then begins their adventure. But wait! The adventuring and role-playing isn't going to start just yet, first it's time to become familiar with one of the game's more frequent screens: the loading screen. Arx Fatalis loads a lot, a whole lot. Throughout the journey, players will encounter some fairly long load times and a slightly chuggy framerate, which makes the waiting sting just a bit more.
