  1. It works, but we have a sense of been there and done that. What keeps the game interesting and compelling is watching the growth of the main character.
  2. Kult may shake up a few areas but doesn’t change the formula, it’s like using a slightly deeper shade of purple and nobody notices. There’s a good storyline in here and if you’re up for some RPG action, Kult should be on your mind. Just don’t expect anything new.

    Heretic's innovative design deserves applause. [July 2005, p.73]
  4. An enjoyable RPG experience with some interesting game play elements provided you can get past the shortcomings.
  5. The saving grace of this game is its affordable price mark.
  6. A mediocre game, complete with pedestrian graphics and controls. It boasts no impressive innovations, and dubious balancing issues ruin any chance at gameplay variety.
  7. The overall feeling after playing this game is that I spent my time foolishly, rather than being really excited and thinking about the game every day like it happens when I play a good RPG.

    Does little to enliven the usual trail of hacking, slashing and opening boxes. We're pretty sure it shows the world's worst character creation screen: you can change your hairstyle and, er, your clothing. [Christmas 2004, p.122]

Once I got the hang of that, I really enjoyed playing. There is an interesting story here, and the graphics were decent. The lack of a character creation screen didn't bother me since the main character (Alita) develops during the game rather than before. By learning attunements, gaining skills and acquiring weapons and armor, there is plenty of character customization. Multiple endings to the game felt thin and didn't really add much. Overall, a good game. Full Review »
