    This game has an AMAZING Spells effect and system. It is very challenging and the story basis is very interesting where you have the choice to help or hinder a demi-god turned mortal who wants to destroy the earth. Sounds good to me...hehe!

    Very good game, very well worked out spell system and combat, alas, some bugs. Overall a very nice game!

    Very interesting game, the spell system is really something new and it makes fun to "produce" new spells like a stunning fireball. But there are also some bugs and glitches which need to be patched. To sum up, I'd recommend this game to all people who are tired of the 938753412 Diablo clones and want to try out something new. "Only" 7/10 points because of the bugs.

    More difficult at the start than it should be by "omissions" in the manual and tutorial. Despite the repetitive nature of combat, there are enough hooks to keep you coming back.

    It's still a hack and slash game that does little to the alter template of the genre; it's good fun, but it's not memorable.
  2. Dawn of Magic contains enough deep content and a pleasing enough approach to the genre to recommend a purchase, but only if you know what's in-store and don't mind the incessantly repetitive nature of the combat.
  3. 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.
