    Dark Alliance, however, remains a decent first test for Tuque's guys. Now, we just have to delve into the co-op aspect as soon as the servers open and closely follow the evolution of the title in the coming months. For the price at which it is offered and for its inclusion in the Xbox service since day one, we advise you to give it a chance.

    Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance fails to live up to both the potential of its placement in the D&D canon and the legacy of the Dark Alliance name. As a mediocre-to-good game, depending on whether you’re alone or with friends, the whole experience is sluggish and dull in execution, and sails close to the average tabletop D&D session where you play for four hours and somehow only walk down a single corridor, but without the enjoyment that comes with that experience.

    There’s room on the market for mindless action, especially when it can be played with friends. I’m glad a game like Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is on Game Pass because that’s the perfect way to get a group of friends playing together. I just wish that once they gathered, they had something better to play. Unfortunately, despite some parts of the game looking and sounding nice, there’s little else to recommend it. With awful AI, weightless combat, an unengaging story, and loot that feels inessential, the entire game is a slog. The biggest fans of Dungeons & Dragons may find a bit of fun with friends, but they deserve better than this.

    Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance
    a Mind of its own
    Dark Alliance is an 8 hour long 3rdperson dungeon crawler that can be layed both solo as well as online with up to 4 players, hre you choose one of 4 classes that can be changed in between every mission… youll be running through thse dungeons, taking down enmies, and every once in a while you will gt the coice, set up camp here and regain all ehalth and consumables… and if you die this will be your spawn point, butif you decline to set up camp, the rarity of the loot in this dungeon increases… really having you carfully test your skill and confidence… I played with the more quick bladed assassin as well as the archer, going back and forth each mission so that I didn’t get bred of this game, and I feel this is the best way to play through dark alliance because pof how repettitve it ultimately is, from start to finish its all the same, do this 15- 20 minute long mission, finding chests, defeating enemies if you so choose, to get tp that levels boss and take it down… I was havig an absolte blast most of the time… there are definitely some challenging momnts here, especially from a ouple of its bosses.. and by I couple, I literally mean a couple as for the most part, the ai in dark alliance is awful, they aren’t alive ready foraction, they stand there, waiting to be triggered, which can lead to tons of lack luster fights.. even some bosses will just stand there to die, putting up no fight playing solo… gameplay wise though the combat can be thrilling with each charater feeling vastly different, but my biggest announce with the gameplay is that at least on the playstation 5, the game seemed to have a mind of its own, input combat commands by itself when id try to run or even mid battle… at the nd of each mission youll be given your loot and this is another issue I have with this game.. the loot is just awful here.. ypou don’t get a feeling of what cool item did I escape with, all of it is lack luster and lame, really killing incentive to explore, I was just rushing through these dungeons slaying these brain dead bosses, with only 2 or 3 really fighting back and giving me a challenge…
    Overall, I enjoyed Dark alliance, is it game of the year contender? Not even close, but its nowhere near as bad as most are making it seem, its worth running through and playing by yourself or with friends, but there sadly is no life, in the form of content or loot to keep you playing beyond the final boss…
    I give Dungeons and Dragons Dark alliance

    I can't understand why this game has this notes, so bad. After almost 40 hour played I can say that this one is a very entertaining game. AI can't understand why this game has this notes, so bad. After almost 40 hour played I can say that this one is a very entertaining game. A third person dungeon crawler that meets elements from old beat 'em up games setted up in 'Dungeons & Dragons' universe like Capcom's 'Tower of Doom' or 'Shadow over Mystara'. Yes it has technical problems, it's true. XBOX ONE version has issues related to load times, but it's a very entertaining, well setted up and beautiful graphically game..... And it's in game pass, so try it. Expand

Na końcową ocenę tytułu wpływa również jego schematyczność wynikająca z braku sensowniejszej i spójniejszej fabuły. Każda kolejna wykonana misja wydaje się być do siebie podobna, gdzie największą uwagę skupiamy na odkryciu kolejnych skrzynek z lootem. Ostatecznie mamy więc tutaj do czynienia z dobrym średniakiem, który niestety nie wykorzystał swojego potencjału do oczarowania wielu graczy.

    A Coop game that doesn’t support split screen. It’s time to end this stupid policy that many many many game developers have been following. IA Coop game that doesn’t support split screen. It’s time to end this stupid policy that many many many game developers have been following. I don’t care it will be added with the first free dlc: it’s an incomplete game just for this reason.
    And the gameplay is sloppy too. Map exploration feels stupid and enemies are not funny to fight.

    Wow... You know how everybody used to say Balan Wonderworld was the worst game of 2021 so far? Well I can honestly say this game is even worseWow... You know how everybody used to say Balan Wonderworld was the worst game of 2021 so far? Well I can honestly say this game is even worse than Balan Wonderworld in literally every way!
    The only positive thing about this game, is the good-looking cinematic cutscenes filled with weird but amusing dances, but Balan Wonderworld does even that better than this sorry pathetic excuse for a D&D game!

    Back in the day, before video games were a thing, everybody used to play Dungeons & Dragons passionately the same way gamers do with video games today, and back then all you had was a set of dice, a few plastic figures and a piece of cardboard. Video games were meant to be the future of fantasy role playing games, but in this case, D&D Dark Alliance was a STEP BACK in evolution! You're far better off playing real D&D with dice, plastic and cardboard! If there ever existed a D&D Tiger handheld game, I bet even that would be better than D&D Dark Alliance.
