It was amazing but Dark Souls blew it away even with the shitty last few areas of the game.
There were video games that preceded Dark Souls with familiar mechanics, but they never caught on due to the market at the time.
Severance: Blade Of Darkness would be a prime example.
Good game, if I remember correctly those real time shadow were a big deal at the time.Thank man, I've been thinking about that game for ages now, I remember reading about this souls-similar game in Edge back in the days and how it was developed by a Spanish studio.
Checked out some video of it, the similarities are amazing.
