Apologies if I don't remember all of this exactly. It's been probably 20 years since Ive played this game.

This is a great old school game.

I played a ton of nox as a kid. Nox had a better storyline than d2 (being able to pick a faction) and sort of better replayability. It was worth replaying 3 times as the story as a whole was pretty much the same, your viewpoint/perspectives and objectives differed bases on your class: conjurer, a knight (or warrior?), or wizard/mage. After 3 replays, D2's replayability would arguably be extremely higher, given the lack of ability to respec, and randomly generated dungeons etc. (and MF / loot hunting & meph/Baal runs)

I played a ton of multiplayer on this game. While d2 was more about pve (sure you could go pk people), nox had actual pvp setups. CTF and Deathmatch iirc. I just remember each class had something OP that they could do.

Conjuerers had this green orb thing that shot out and could 1 shot people, but Knights with a shield could reflect it back at you. Conjurers could also summon creatures and set them on a, "go hunt stuff" mode. I was on dial up, so this helped me get kills when a sibling would eventually pick up the phone and lock me up.

Knights has this spear thing that could hook you like Scorpion from mortal combat, (and a sprint / charge iirc). Wizards used either the death ray thing, and maybe something else.

I'm sure it wasn't balanced, I'm sure it's not as fun as I remember, and the graphics will be shit now for sure, but I played this game for hours and hours and hours. That, Team Fortress Classic & HL, Starcraft/BW, and D2 consumed my childhood as a kid.

Can't go wrong with a free game. It most likely won't hold up as well as some of the point and click adventures do, given the humor that's often so heavily found in those. But I would still recommend. TU OP.
Oh my goodness I thought this game had been lost to time! Signing up for an Origin account just for this to relive my childhood.
So many joyful childhood memories of this game. While everyone was playing Diablo2, I was playing this and enjoyed every alone-in-my-dark-bedroom minute. Until one day I tried Diablo2, and put it down withing two hours to go back to NOX.

I absolutely loved the multi-player of this game as a kid. I wonder if people still play it multi-player.

Own it on GOG and found it pretty unplayable by today's standards but worth a try for free.

The multiplayer was waay ahead of its time. Felt a lot like an isometric Guild Wars 1.

Really enjoyed this game when I was younger. It's good. Obligatory, "it's old and will look old." The story of you being an average joe thrown into a mystical setting is amusing.

I remember that the music in this game was really good. I'll probably get this for that alone.
