    Still a bit of rather tasty eye candy, Desert of Flames takes the game further down that amazing graphical path it was already on. The combat changes are major and a bit of a risk, but they do make the game a bit more challenging and require more thought than merely running into combat and swinging a weapon or casting a spell.
