Just saw a demo video of Dark Messiah;Might and Magic from E3. This look so much like Severance it's uncanny. The atmosphere, NPC and even to head chopping and blood/gore; it's Severance.

I've been playing since a couple of days, Dark Messiah, Might and Magic, (maybe it's the one Dericius sere talking about) and, damn it makes me feel good, finnaly, I've found something that taste like BOD... They're a few things needed to be changed, but it's not to bad...
Well, I can only recommande it to you guys!!! Have fun cutting somme boby parts![:D]

Guys I saw this game play video from the Elveon game, and what surprise when i realised the combat is just like the one on BOD (no mutilations) even the enemy name and health bar appears on the same place as on BOD, the combat mechanics are the same lock on the enemy, circle around him and make your combos. I just think this guy used BOD as a inspiration for the combate. here is the link for the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5HMCiwmasY

Yes, I had told that a lot of times in this forum an others Elveon will be the most similar game to BOD, I will buy it becuse if the game is a succes on the market maybe other companys start releasing games with that combat system.

Edit: I had searched in this thread and I hadn't post nothing about Elveon.


The game will be released at 2007 for Xbox360, PC y PS3.

Elveon looks beautiful, like the offspring of BoD's combat and Enclave's visual design. It would be hard to ask for better gaming parents.

Years later and multiple trips through, I still can't get enough BoD. Maybe Elveon will continue its bloodline, dare we hope? :-)

The point is Elveon is one of those games which are created on basis of other older games and there's a danger in such for this borrowing can be an indicator of lack of creativity which would make game overall not interesting.Regards.

The best of Elveon is that it will use Unreal Engine 3, and it will be easy to find tutorials and modding support.

If you don't like something you could easily change it.

Hi, I just thought I'd add that I know of another game that's similar to Blade of Darkness, though right now I can only get the demo cause it's so old. It's called Dark Vengeance and you can get the demo off PCgameworld (or whatever they call it nowadays). You have to hold down control to lock on to your target then the direction keys for attacks. To dodge you use A and the direction keys. It takes a little getting used to but you'll probably love it. Only not much fun if you use the warlock who mostly uses projectiles. [:D] Fun game though.
