GameSpot again.. with a review of Arkane Studios' 'Arx Fatalis' for XBox.
Traditional console role-playing games, made in Japan and filled with random battles and melodramatic storylines, have yet to find a home on the Xbox. But the system boasts some of the best PC-style RPGs in years. Arx Fatalis is one of these, and it fully deserves a permanent place in any Xbox RPG fan's library alongside Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. With Arx Fatalis, French developer Arkane Studios intended to pay homage to the classic early-'90s first-person RPG Ultima Underworld, but it has done much more than just imitate that game. Originally released a year ago for the PC, Arx Fatalis has been ported over to the Xbox nicely, and it delivers the same entertaining, good-looking, and almost incomparably atmospheric gameplay. It's highly complex and filled with much more detail than you're probably accustomed to from other games, which means Arx Fatalis isn't suitable for casual gamers. But they've never heard of Arx Fatalis, anyway, and are merely missing out on a memorable, original role-playing experience.
