    There is a review in the latest Official Xbox Magazine that is not favorable. But also not very detailed. Wish I could offer more.

    I got it for $29.99 new at EB and it's pretty good. I don't think I'd go by ANYTHING oxm says. It has a lot in common with Morrowind. The gameplay is very similar, although you follow a much more linear path. The graphics also have some similarities and have about the same overall performance, with Arx having better textures and lighting and Morrowind having better architecture and art design. The entire game takes place underground, so it's generally dreary. It's a fun adventure and definately worth the $29.99(don't know if the sale is still running though), just don't expect the latest and greatest technology like Havoc physics and advanced lighting.

    Makes me think of the old Ultima Underwold games on PC.
