  • Summary: This RPG features new character classes and races such as Barbarians, Monks, Paladins and Half-Orcs. Cast over 100 spells: both Sorcerer & Cleric, plus Orisons and Cantrips all straight from the Dungeons & Dragons New 3rd Edition rules. The Dungeon MasterĀ® communicates all important events and findings. [Ubi Soft] Collapse

  1. The only thing preventing me from scoring this graphics masterpiece in the 90’s was the somewhat weak storyline and the tedium that got me down on more then one occasion.
  2. A nice-looking and solid dungeon crawl that offers a viable alternative to the excellent range of PC RPGs out there.
  3. The interface is also not particularly logical with many character actions being accessible only after you have waded through a number of submenus. This is annoying and will drive you to distraction in combat, until you get the hang of the hot keys.
  4. Its uninspired dungeons, two-dimensional characters, repetitive gameplay and frustrating technical problems make this one not worth the time or the money.
  5. The game just has so many problems that I don’t think future patches will help it any.
  6. Looks like a tremendous mistake.
  7. 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]

    This is one of the best RPG games ever, don't buy into the reviews.
    There are no bugs at all, This game is one of my favorites of all times.

    Problems 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. Expand
