About

Nine deities. Nine heroes. And only one champion. Mythical Greece. The land of gods, poets, heroes, but also of terrible monsters and creatures.

Numen is a fully three-dimensional action RPG set in mythical Greece. The player controls one of nine heroes, who in the name of the gods they follow compete in a grand test of their capabilities. Heroes who undertake a pilgrimage over the highest mountains, through valleys and deep forests, underground vaults and the scorched sand of deserts.

Numen however is no mere hack-and-slash game. It offers the player the possibility of tactical decision making, searching for enemies’ weak spots, selection of adequate weapons. It rewards those who are able to adapt to the changing situation on the battlefield. In this the player is helped by the unique powers and abilities invested in him or her by the god he or she follows, provided that the god is happy with him or her. The Olympian gods, after all, are renowned for their wanton and unpredictable nature…

  • Action RPG with strong and intriguing storyline and surprising plot turns.
  • Detailed 3D design with state-of-the-art visual effects.
  • The game world based on the Greek mythology comprises of tens of locations situated on 12 islands with both exteriors and underground labyrinths.
  • Many extensive main story and side quests.
  • Select your hero‘s gender, his or her specialization out of three possibilities and one of nine deities for him or her to worship.
  • Plenty of unique weapons, armors and items, more than 80 spells and abilities.
  • Arena duels, training combats and tournaments.

Numen: Contest of Heroes reviews and comments

Translated by

The Game has high Potential but has been misimplemented. From a Scale of 1-10 I would give the Game 5/10. Why? -Little Variety-Quests are rather unmotivating-Some Bugs that screw down the Fun-Because of some Bugs you have to reload the Game, and thus continue playing at the last saved Spot. -ect. Luckily I bought it in the Sale, and thus did not spend a lot of Money on the Game conclusion: A Purchase is not really worth it (from my Side)

Game slow, flat, boring, I couldn't resist an hour for the sense of boredom that puts you on, absurd. Static combat System Similar to shifts, you hit and the other also strikes him simultaneously as two real toys that beat each other, no doding parades or anything like that. Ugly choice to put the menu bar at the bottom of the game screen and the sides, always present, ruin the whole view, a bit ' how to play in windowed mode. The character moves very slow and you can't even run. The dialogues are long and not even dubbed, it touches you to read pages and pages. The only positive note are the very beautiful settings and attention to detail, as well as the characters and enemies.
