    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.)

Incredibly interesting game with a very exciting story, at the time when I was a child. A separate pleasure was to pass the game for different characters, since each had a small difference in story and in a walk-through. What a nostalgia... 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.

    Это потрясающая игра!
    Меня впечатлила во времена выпуска буквально всем, совершенно новое дыхание в arpg.
    Намного больше принесла удовольствие, чем DII, которую я забросил ещё после первого акта.
    Очень интересные решения как в физике в самой игре,
    игровом сценарии различных персонажей, необычная графическая составляющая. В общем это действительно был не клон чего-либо, а полноценный индивидуальный творческий игровой продукт.

    В неё кропотливо играл как в те времена, так и сейчас. Заново заморочился с установкой играбельной версии из Gog.
    К сожалению пока не удалось настроить для игры по сети на современном PC.

    Tiens, un con-current de Diablol et donc un autre haque et slache à la mords-moi-le-zob et clic-moi-le-cul : allez petit personnage en ****Tiens, un con-current de Diablol et donc un autre haque et slache à la mords-moi-le-zob et clic-moi-le-cul : allez petit personnage en **** pixels qu'on peut presque compter, on se sort les doigts et on tape des monstres ! puis, on se soigne et on retape des monstres. Et même que tu peux le faire en même temps ! Rince et répète jusqu'à ce que tu tombes dans le coma de l'inanition de l'intellect fracassé par cette petite chiasse à clics, le peu de cervelle restante répandue sur le clavier...!

    Bon, c'est du classique évidemment... mais en 1999, bonjour la gueule du truc tout en 2D (ou plutôt fausse 3D isométrique, enfin bref) et faible résolution (enfin du 1024x768 pour l'époque, on s'extasiait, on s'ébaudissait...) mais le pire, c'est que ça rame cette daube, le curseur rame aussi (bonjour la latence du machin, putain) alors pour cliquer précisément, c'est râpé...

    Ce qui rend le "gameplay" encore plus lourdingue qu'il ne l'est déjà, lui qui n'avait pas besoin de ça... pour être déjà merdique. A noter que le jeu est tout en anglais et à noter aussi qu'il fonctionne sur Win7-64 à condition de lui activer la compatibilité Win98. Comme ça, on a pu se rendre compte que c'est aussi daubé que le diablol syndical de l'époque. Qu'est-ce qui leur a pris à Westwood ? ils auraient mieux fait de se limiter à commander et conquérir...
