    Ik vind het een vodde game. Ik heb er spijt van dat ik het gekocht. This game sucks.

    A turn for the worst. I hoped that they had made improvements over BDGII, and there are some (graphics, cooperative play). But man is this game devoid of ANY depth, variation or fun. Monsters are all stupid and dull. Endless wandering, searching for items or something you might have overlooked, in a dead and empty world. No weather, night/day, or ANY interaction with anybody/anything A turn for the worst. I hoped that they had made improvements over BDGII, and there are some (graphics, cooperative play). But man is this game devoid of ANY depth, variation or fun. Monsters are all stupid and dull. Endless wandering, searching for items or something you might have overlooked, in a dead and empty world. No weather, night/day, or ANY interaction with anybody/anything besides plot-characters. No choices in what you say, or plot-variations, interaction is often just forced upon you when wandering about the "wrong" turns. It's worse than games like Doom/Quake, and that's saying a lot. This line of gaming can end NOW, for all I care. Collapse

  1. A lot of time and effort was put into making sure that a good strong continuous game was played. The player does not feel disjointed by going into a new zone or another act. It is all tied in very well.

    Though not the never-ending chain of quests found in a "real" EverQuest game, Champions certainly stands as the longest, deepest title in the "Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance' vein yet seen on a console. [Mar 2004, p.102]

    Ah, multiplayer, how I love thee. Multiplayer in Champions of Norrath is incredible.
