    As an old-hand at the D&D Goldbox series, this is a wonderful romp in the style of those old games. I'm quite happy with it, though someone not into the old games might not like it.

    Great adaption of the 3rd Edition D&D rules, but has poor graphics, poor sound and (even worse) a poor user interface. This game is only for die-hard D&D fans.

    Although this D&D game does'nt have very good graphics the gameplay is ok i wouldn't reccomend this game if you have played D&D on the computer as you might expect too much.

    Very very very disappointing. No subclasses like bard, monk, etc. It took me approx. 6 hours to win with no replay value at all. All 10 levels of weak gameplay would fit on a single sheet of graph paper.

    If you're a graphics nut or details oriented must have, then don't try the game. If you enjoy D&D rules and just like to dungeon crawl, it's a good time. Many people nowadays expect too much from a hand held game. Be glad the option to play an old fashioned paper to screen D&D game is even out there.

    If you are new to gaming and I mean don't understand the term paper rpg than don't buy the game. If you enjoy a classic story and a lot of D&D rules on one small chip than u should already own it.

    Graphics aren't the best, but as a D&D fan isn't that bad.

    I've played EOB series on the PC at least a billion times. This is nowhere near. The problem aren't the graphics, which is more than enough, or longevity. The problem are immense gameplay issues, boring turn based combats, slow advancement and bad rules (or the implementation thereof). Thumbs down.

    A very solid, entertaining, and visually satisfying tribute to the RPG genre. [Spring 2003, p.31]
  2. Can be very addictive despite it’s many flaws. It’s hard to recommend to the average gamer though, with sub-par graphics, sound, and gameplay issues.
  3. If you have the patience to overlook its technical shortcomings and master its quirks, Eye of the Beholder is actually a pretty decent dungeon-crawling experience to take on the road with you.
