Who else hates Dark Messiah of Might and Magic?

Oh yeah, I forgot Whiskey Media is subsidizing my ability to post stupid crap on the internet. Hence: Blog Time.

DMMM has recently been referenced a few times by the GB crew as a top-notch "kicking dudes off ledges simulator."

I vaguely recalled playing the first couple levels of this game back when it launched so I installed it again because kicking dudes off of ledges sounded like some good fun. Man, do I regret wasting the bandwidth to install this game. I got to the goblin city or whatever before I called it quits.

I'm going to click a button now and make a sweet list. Try and guess what the title of the list is.

  • hated every character I was forced to interact with
  • motion-sickness mode (head-bobbing) enabled by default
  • the combat is boring (I could kill these orcs 20 different ways but kicking them into these spikes is so easy)
  • RPG-lite elements detract more than they add to the game
  • spiders
  • unclear quest objectives
  • game sometimes fails to remember settings
  • nightmare flying tentacle beasts

Does anyone have any similar experiences with the game? Do you want to fight me because you believe I am wrong? Do you think Matt Rory is secretly a unicorn? Clicky click the Post Reply button down south there.

Hint: The title of the list is Reasons Why I Hate DMMM.
