Arx Fatalis is one of my most favourite games, just played it through recently again. It's very immersive, because there's almost no music at all except in story-based narration sequences, it relies entirey on ambience sounds and the quiet mood. In many ways similar to Ultima Underworld I & II (in fact it was back then a spiritual successor, at least design-wise), unfortunately also much too short, I wish it would be a bigger game and last longer.
Highly recommended, also if you intend to play it on Windows 8 or 10 you'd probably need to install the Arx Libertatis port of the game, it enables the game to run on modern systems while making no changes to it gameplay-wise.

That would be me trying to stay alive when attacked by the Evil Chicken of Hell when summoned through a specially modified Summon Demon spell (with 3 Mega runes at the start). I don't even mention the insanely deadly Ylside with golden armor, which sometimes gets summoned instead, that is only possible through cheesy tactics.

Yes, the game is not easy at all, even if you take advantage in the first room, when moving a bone 10 times you get a wonderful weapon, armor and all spells. I keep crying that this game is not followed by 2nd, 3rd ..

OFF
I started again Clouds of Xeen (for 13 times) using nice ExoDos. Sehr gut.
