    With a patch to clean up the technical issues, The Bard’s Tale: Remastered and Resnarkled would be an incredible value. It’s a classic title that too few people played when it was new, cleaned up just enough to be visually acceptable, sold at a reasonable price. The game itself will take around twenty hours to polish off, depending on the difficulty level chosen and the dedication employed for finding the stat boosting tokens. When approaching this title, I was fully expecting to sing its praises for being the unappreciated gem that it is. It this edition’s current state that cannot be done with a clean conscious. Hopefully, InXile will take the time to address the bugs. Should they do so, this would be a title worth recommending to any one with a sense of humor and a desire to play a protagonist that deserves every piece of grief he receives.

    This game is not a graphical powerhouse and is not as sleek as modern games. In fact it is a remaster of a PS2 (and PC) game, which looks likeThis game is not a graphical powerhouse and is not as sleek as modern games. In fact it is a remaster of a PS2 (and PC) game, which looks like a mediocre PS3 game. But the looks is not where the fun is!
    The game is actually a fun adventure game, with levels that ramp up the difficulty perfectly so that the game keeps fun and grinding to level up is never necessary.
    More importantly, the Bard is very snarky (hence the resnarkled in the title) in all responses to the local NPC's and enemies, which is used for comedic effect during the entire game. And it's a type of humor I definitely enjoy.
    If you want a comedy adventure, the Bard's Tale is definitely worth the very reasonable price it's selling for.
