Nightcaster was one of Microsoft's lead titles. It was bankrolled by Microsoft; it was published by Microsoft; it was advertised by Microsoft; and it was on store shelves before the Xbox even went on sale. Clearly this is title would be a showcase for what the Xbox could do, right? No, obviously. Barring the rare instance, Nightcaster never demonstrates why it is on the Xbox.

Nightcaster – Review
Nightcaster wasn't a sleeper hit—it was just a snoozer. Less a role-playing game (RPG) and more an action brawler in the vein of Sword Of The Berzerk, Nightcaster is an action fantasy in which a mysterious evil has overrun a mythical land, and Arran, our hero, has taken upon himself to purge the world of this evil with an arsenal of deadly magic spells.
