"An excellent action/RPG hybrid with very unique gameplay. Your name is Jack Mower, a 20th century dude who just happened to be sucked into the world of Nox via his TV set. The world is in danger and you have to save it! But before you embark on your epic journey you must choose your path: warrior, wizard, or conjurer.

Choose the path of a warrior, and you will be able to equip and use all manner of swords, battle-axes, war hammers, and chakrams - though you’ll leave the magical mumbo-jumbo up to the Conjurer and Wizard classes. An enchanted weapon is the closest a Warrior gets to magic but that’s OK, because magic is for sissies.

Origin has given away some really great classic titles and continues that tradition with Nox, a Westwood developed RPG. When I think Westwood I think Command & Conquer and the Dune games. That said, Westwood did develop many different kinds of games and Nox was one of it's later releases.

You gotta give Origin credit for giving away old stuff like this. I would have never played Nox, or even remembered it existed, if not for t his.

I still may never play it, but I have that option now!

I believe that may be part of the thinking there. The goodwill built of handing things over for free is higher than people potentially not playing the game.
