DMMM

Why did no firstperson games ever capitalize on and expand the fluid firstperson combat and gameplay of this cult classic?

    It’s actually a lot clunkier than this board cares to mention. There are definitely moments where it shines greatly but they are few and far between the other questionable design choices.

      It's a 2005 game. Compared to the other titles of the time period it was fluid AF.

          Based. I agree it still holds up. Shame it never had much of an impact on firstperson titles. I imagine firstperson platformers in general could become incredibly popular with DMMM style movement and gameplay.

      Clunky is a bit of a buzzword, but yes it's not amazing. Feedback on standard, non-charged attacks is really, really poor compared to something like Mordhau or Chivalry (it's about on par with Oblivion in this respect except with far less impactful sound effects) and your options become relatively limited against anything other than bog standard humanoid enemies who have by far the most fleshed out hit reactions etc., but also become less and less common as you progress through the game. It's hugely elevated by the ragdoll physics you get via stuff like staves' charged attacks, some of the magic spells and environmental traps. It's still decent but would probably benefit immensely from a sequel where the whole game is like the first handful of levels (i.e. the only ones webms are ever posted of, for good reason).

      It's a 2005 game. Compared to the other titles of the time period it was fluid AF.

      2006, and not really. Any number of games from around that time (and earlier) have combat systems and control schemes which aren't significantly different from those in modern action games.

    Dark Messiah absolutely doesn't have a good combat system. In fact engaging with the actual melee combat in this game is the most ineffective and boring way to play the game. The game is saved by the level design that has ledges, spikes and traps every few steps and the physics engine that lets you kick people into them or make them slip on ice.

    I loved the Multiplayer too but it was the dumbest fucking shit ever I have to recognize.
    >Undead faction has a "woops everyone that attacked falls to their deaths immediately" trap at their base map
    >Good faction map isn't nearly as defensible
    >Mages had one-shot abilities that covered both extreme long range, mid range and close range without any feasible counters
    >Priests were super fucking annoying and almost unkillable but had no dps

      They couldn't possibly made a better intro to set the overall tone of the game than that.
      >Here's your first enemy, kick it down the hole in front of it

      On another note, I'd recommend cheating all the skillpoints early on if you're tired of the game. It sucks that you can't play with high level skills until there's like an hour left of the game.

    first person melee is kinda clunky on a monitor because theres no depth perception. these games cheat for you a lot of the time, landing hits that would have no business landing "in reality". maybe if VR ever actually takes off we'll see new first person melee shit.

    Overrated and tedious after first "wow" impression of first few levels. Frankly I've forced myself to finish it just to make a tick against "played that widely lauded on the interwebz hidden gem cult classic never getting old game". Really a pity I had no posibility to play it in its prime, cause it surely aged like fine vinegar.

        Just say it's shit and begone fool.

        Care to elaborate on redeeming points of the title? You react like I've trampled your idol or insulted personally. I'm sorry if it chafes at you, but that's just my impression. I've installed with just this kind of positive attitude and soaring expectations, but in the end it became a slog. Maybe magic build was a wrong choise, but oh well...

            No one can intellectualize a counter to your soured experience that will make any difference. You pushed through despite not clicking with it which is like walking with gravel in your shoes. I can tell you a hike is the most amazing experience you could dream of but you'll only remember your feet hurting.
