Though cast in the action/RPG game-play style of Diablo, Nox breaks its mold and offers up more than a few pleasant surprises. The third-person isometric perspective offers a refreshing dose of humor, served up by a slick interface and starring very distinct character classes. Much more than a clone, Nox takes the best the genre had and--for the most part--makes it better. Nox's story of a harmless auto mechanic who gets accidentally sucked into a fantasy world immediately sets this game apart from its dark and dour brethren. Nox is funny, and it's refreshing to play an RPG that tries to put a smile on your face. Game play, dungeons, puzzles, and even the story are slightly altered, depending on Jack's class, giving three separate single-player experiences, all leading to the same final showdown with Hecubah. The quests are typical RPG fare--find this, kill that, rescue these guys--spiced up with puzzles relating to the class's abilities or environment. The Nox team's...

Great game! I just don't quite understand why it was not that popular as Diablo at that time.

Nox was a lot of fun when I played it. Really, I liked the turn of events which was dynamic enough, the system of classes and overall "fairy-taleness", so to say.

The game was a bit overshadowed by Diablo series, though. It did not provide drastic changes to the classic cerebrospinal Diablo-styled gameplay, also having a notable disadvantage in the shape of lowered replayability (the quantity of random things tended to zero), even despite there were three different classes with non-mirrored plot.

Still, I've got to say that Nox was a good game, with some unique concepts I liked much and never met anywhere else, like some creatures or objects.

I played this game when i was 10 and still playing it with friends. Good graphics, nice music and interesting storyline turned this game into a masterpiece.
Multiplayer is pretty unbalanced, but big amount of players decreases this disadvantage almost to 0.
This game can even be modded, but it lacks some tools and some of existing tools are kinda weird. But still, there are two mods already: Nox Respawned and Nox Unimod.
Many features of Nox left inside its engine - developers thought they could implement them later, but Diablo beat this game so hard... First and last patch was 1.2, which brought a cooperative gauntlet mode, known as Nox Quest.

I wish we can bring back the popularity of this game.

A game made by legendary "WESTWOOD" studio. Fun game overshadowed by Blizzard's "Diablo" game. In my opinion, they need to remake this in latest generation console.

good!

Maybe it has a weird story and some challenging moving around (like someone made a 2D TPP) but in the end it still proves to be a generally fun-to-play tongue-in-cheek cRPG.
