    Despite the fact that this game is old, it probably still to this day has the best core gameplay of any action RPG ever created. TheDespite the fact that this game is old, it probably still to this day has the best core gameplay of any action RPG ever created. The competitive multiplayer component is by far the best implementation of "Diablo like" player versus player combat in existence. Diablo's PvP is utterly pathetic in comparison (and I'm including all 3 Diablo games).

    From harpooning your opponent and dragging them around the level like a pet dog, to magic missiles with fantastic homing and aesthetics, to summoning creatures that can be made to roam around the level attacking people, to charging across the room, to shield and blocking mechanics, to realistic doors that can be opened partially just like real deal, to a great line of sight system, this game has an abundance of superb mechanics.

    The campaign and the main story is a bit corny, but the main gameplay is where the game really shines. It may have been a combination of the game's corny characters and the assumption that Westwood couldn't make an RPG that may have doomed the game to not being as successful. People assumed the game wasn't interesting without trying it.

    If you enjoy great LAN games with your friends, then this is one of the best LAN games in whole world of gaming by far. I definitely recommend it.

    This is one of the best games of all time, despite it not being well known.

    (PS: Another one of the most unknown best games of all time is a game called Sacrifice, by Shiny Entertainment.)

It has flaws and game is linear as hell, but because of my nostalgia and how good and entertaining this game is, i can easily forget those things and replay all 3 campaigns again. I liked this game as a kid, i like this game now, must be played by any fan of RPG games. Expand

It has this mesmerizing quality to it which comes once in every hundred games. Although it can be compared to Diablo, i must say - certain things i love much more in Nox. If only it had more characters, deeper skill trees, and was a little longer in terms of play time - this would have been a worthy opponent to the heavy-weight Diablo.

    As it stands - and like others said - a gem worth replaying (i have actually played through it in 2013, and it stood the test of time quite handsomely).
    Highly recommend even today (almost 2016) to all Diablo fans.

One thing that's appealing is that while the game has interesting lore, not much of it is thrown at you at the beginning. Instead, it's given in small bits as the plot progresses. You play as a guy from our own world, so it's easy to relate. All in all, a wonderfully cheesy, humorous and entertaining take on the Diablo-type gameplay.
    P.S. You're going to love the Staff of Oblivion.
