  1. Then there's the combat. It's messy. You'll fling ranged spells at enemies and they'll mysteriously miss, presumably due to line-of-sight issues, but it's difficult to tell. Even melee combat seems buggy at times, with monsters you can't hit even though they're stood right next to you.
  2. Dawn of Magic does everything in the RPG book by-the-numbers, only it seems to have used all the wrong numbers.
  3. Buggy, broken, and entirely unoriginal, Dawn of Magic is one horrible action-oriented role-playing game.

    My advice? Forget about this accursed game and play "Diablo II", "Dungeon Siege II", or "Titan Quest" again. [Apr 2007, p.68]
