Quoted from Arx Fatalis Reviews:Check out these quotes from Arx Fatalis reviews & previews
"The most interesting thing is that the developers plan on introducing a multiplayer mode into the game. We unfortunately saw none of it, but from what I've heard, it is supposed to be primarily death-match oriented and focused on spell-casting -- something like the Wheel of Time. And what with the (OK, not too original, but certainly) brilliant spell-casting system, this promises to significantly increase the game's replay value."
"Personally, I think the game would've been more enjoyable if the developers took the time to polish and fix the technical discrepancies and, shall we say, lighten up the ambiance a bit."
"What Arx Fatalis lacks in innovation and polish, it more than makes up for in rich atmosphere. Arkane Studios missed the chance to give players a dragon's hoard of goodies, but they've succeeded in delivering a chest full of glittering prizes that no CRPG gamer should miss."
"It looks like Arkane are onto a winner here. It's unlikely that they're going to make any fundamental changes to the interface at this late stage, but as long as the rest of the game lives up to the promise of the opening sections then any niggles with the controls are likely to fade into insignificance."
"In many ways this game is superior to Morrowind; although it doesn't have the initial appeal offered by that title's graphical splendour, it has a lot more depth and far less time is spent walking from place to place aimlessly. As a dungeon-crawling RPG, it's a lot of fun, so if that's your sort of thing - and you don't mind dealing with the quirks of an occasionally poorly-implemented first person viewpoint - then it's definitely worth checking out."
