A great CRPG from the good old days

Posted on 2013-05-08 02:55:14 byleshpar's avatarleshpar:

Not really from the good old days, but it sure feels like it. The story is epic and involving, the character creation is extensive and allows you to play how you want to, and the interface reminds me of greats like Baldur's Gate and Ultima. If you enjoy CRPGs from the 90s as much as I do then you need to buy this game and the first one as well!

Missing something

Posted on 2013-05-18 02:01:48 byCharon121's avatarCharon121:

This RPG probably has everything from your "good RPG" checklist. The mechanics are fine, the dialogues well-written, the inventory and character management are practical, yet something is missing. A few years after completing this game, I barely remember it. Perhaps it's the lack of emotional investment I had with other games. The formula is here and it works, but I'm just not feelingread more it. Don't get me wrong; you'll have a good time with this game, but it just won't pull you in the way other RPGs can. At least it didn't do that for me.

Excellent RPG

Posted on 2013-05-07 18:48:14 bysmilazzo's avatarsmilazzo:

I bought this a while back on another website, however the game is excellent. It's a grid/turn based rpg. There were big improvements from Book I to Book II. Improved graphics and weapon modifications. However, the game can be unforgiving at times. Luckily, you can turn off some features (i.e. hunger). The music is memorable as well as the gameplay. The story is nice (until theread more end). Overall, I would highly recommend this title. I put in about 25 hours and really enjoyed myself.
Side note: It also worked with a cheat engine if you want to further explore/tweak with max level characters.
