    Too much turn-based combat to be fun.
  2. Most significantly, Ruins of Myth Drannor does not accomplish the depth of story, the detail of character customization, or the engulfing campaign world that made the original Pool of Radiance such a memorable adventure.
  3. The rules are poorly applied, the interface is clumsy, and the pacing is very, very slow.
  4. 40
    The tedium, bugs, and simplicity of the game itself outweigh much of the value the game offers in its size or even its faithful translation of the 3rd Edition rules, making this Pool of Radiance but a shallow reflection of the earlier classic.

    Looks like a tremendous mistake.

    If the mind-numbing battles and drab scenery haven’t already turned you off, don’t worry—there’s still the annoying interface to send you over the edge. [Jan 2002, p.113]

    I give this game a ten because I have been playing it for a month and haven't gotten bored of it yet. I'm on my third way through I give this game a ten because I have been playing it for a month and haven't gotten bored of it yet. I'm on my third way through if beating it, and it's still exciting as when I first played it. Full Review »

    Problems are aplenty, (lack of story and npcs in general, clunky interface and so on) but that sweet turn based d&d tactical awesomeness addedProblems are aplenty, (lack of story and npcs in general, clunky interface and so on) but that sweet turn based d&d tactical awesomeness added a lot of depth to simple "me vs. zombie nr. 135 and Co." scenarios and pretty much outweighed all those flaws for me.
