You can only really compare LoL 1 to the EotB series as the sequels are wildly different, but yeah it compares fine. Same type of gameplay though I dare say EotB is better and really better overall. EotB 2 is in a league of its own as it took everything that was good from EotB 1 and improved on it, and giving a better story, and better graphics, though remaining the same core gameplay.
Jinxtah: It would be amazing to see Eye of the Beholder series on gog.com as well, so I could replay those games. The second in that series was one of my all-time favorite RPGs back in the day.
Charon121: How would you compare LoL and EotB in terms of mechanics, story and overall feeling? 'Cause I'm interested in that series too, but I've never played it. If you want something similar to LoL, try Anvil of Dawn. It has great production values, seamless movement and a very thick atmosphere. I still can't decide whether LoL or AoD is better.
In EotB you have a party of 4 people that you need to create before starting. You don't start with 1 person as in LoL, and that's a good thing as you can really create some amazing parties (the party size grows to 6 in EotB 2).
The level design is also far superior in EotB imho.
I've never heard of Anvil of Dawn, but I'll check it out, thanks!
