The very fun game and not the Harry Potter spell!
Nox is a very impressive and interesting action RPG game that holds so much potential that we worry that many great game concepts and mechanics are just going to waste or are not seen as something of a ‘main stream’ line!
What the deuce!
The story of the Nox revolves around Jack an ‘our time’ guy who is somehow teleported into a parallel universe made up of high fantasy lands and creatures and magic.
Seems like all those fantasies we made watching ‘God Save Our King’ was available to relive in some neat Computer RPG game, all righty then!
As jack tries to make out the reality’s reality he is in, he gets to know that he is part of some super magical F-up and that in order to go back to his time and place he has to defeat an Evil Sorceress Hecubah and her army of Necromancers!
So armed with all kinds of magic and whatnot the game is a very impactful and focused on the fantasy elements of the game and thus provides a huge load of fantasy quench to our ever longing thirst to escape this pigeon hole we call our home planet!
Nox, is an action adventure role playing game, that uses oblique perspective (view from the overhead) and a Fog of War ‘TrueSight’ system (lights up the part where you are or are going to and everything else gets faded into darkness on the screen).
The game is very hard on its rule of fantasy character build up, the game presents you to choose one from three character class, The Warrior class or The Conjurer Class or The Wizard Class.
But unlike other RPG fantasy games where no matter what class you choose the game more or less remains the same, here in Nox the game changes altogether.
If you chose warrior class in the first run and in the second one you select wizard class then the gaming experience and story will be drastically different than the last time!
How cool is that huh?!!
Meaning at least three new game experiences in just one game! Also the game is pretty clever and intelligent in loads of areas of fantasy mechanics and challenge imposing.
The warrior classes are cool with close ranged and direct attacks, the conjurer can summon demons or animals to fight for them while they use ranged weapons and the wizard can outright rain fire on the opponents’ sorry asses.
The game also supports multiplayer option and it is a neat experience to have, nothing too much to shout about but a neat one!
Developed by Westwood Studios, published by Electronic Arts and distributed by Origin and GOG.com for PC and OS X. it was released in January 2000.
The game, Nox is nothing too fancy or too unique to dance about but whatever it presents for us, it presents that with respect to the fantasy gameplay experiences and that is some serious hard work right there and we acknowledge that.
Nox, Box, Ox.
We had to let that out, anyway, sorry, yeah, Nox is a good game to try, especially with the character class experiences.
Go nuts with that man!
