    You'll get lost in every level except if your a pro (and ime not a pro) but is still cool how u buy ure own weapons to use am surprised that buldars gate 1 got a higher ranking than this one (the sequel) its o.k but youll spend nearly ure whole time saying "i think ive been here" overall i wouldn't reccomend playing it.

  1. A wonderful example of how to craft a fun and exciting game out of a genre that is ageing poorly. This game shows that there is still some life yet in the hack and slash RPG, and for that I am grateful.

    While some of the areas are bigger than the ones found in the original, almost all of them are less interesting. The game's dungeons and outdoor areas are, for the most part, boring.
  3. The boys and girls at Black Isle Studios put over 100,000 hours into the development of Dark Alliance II and it shows. Dark Alliance II is a great experience to enjoy either alone or with a friend and greatly improves upon almost every feature available in its 2001 predecessor.
