    Excellent spell effects can't make up for poor gameplay, most especially due to really bad level design (after walking around a level with nothing to kill for 10 minutes I turned this game off for good).

  1. If one can look over the odd, “brave Sir Arron ran away” combat method, and a ineffective story sewn together from fantasy cliche’s, there is some fun to be had with Nightcaster.
  2. This game is at once addictive, and yet annoying to me.
  3. It's almost a shame that the detail put into the graphics is all but hidden by the overhead view that you're seemingly stuck with.
