I got this for christmas and I still am playing it now. Before I got this I had Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance. I thought it was brilliant the only down side being it wasn't that long. Heroes brings a more in-depth story-line which I loved. The great thing about this game is that you have to use tactics and strategy to defeat the bosses. Unlike Dark Alliance when it was just straight in and kill. The game is not repetitive in my view and the ability to learn special spells/attacks brings more to it. The weapons are fab. Another great thing is that you have to collect 20 Soul Shards in the game to boost your best weapon. Its really great. I hope they bring out a sequel.

I got this after finishing Baldurs Gate 2 because I wanted something similar. This is excellent and, I think, a bit harder because it doesn't have so much armour and suchlike to buy. You can't make your character better or recall back to the shop and its save point quite so easily so have to be better than in the BGDA games. It is much easier to look at than BGDA and you have the zoom in zoom out to help you. It lost the final star because there isn't much replay value, the story being the same with all characters but all the other aspects make this a very good game for the money. I am a 44 year old woman who has done most of the RPGs on all three consoles and think this is as good as many of the others I have played.

Well I read the reviews and onething that wasn't really mentioned was the ability to get your friends round and sit there for hours on end shouting at each other to get their butts in gear (all in fun though). The majority of multi player games out there are competitive and this is pure co-operative. Hours of fun in the Rpg catagory. Please buy this games and force them to make more.

If you liked Baldurs Gate Dark alliance then you'll love this! There are some improvements namely that you can now zoom in and out and there are no jumping sections (if you played BGDA you'll know the bit I mean). The cut scenes that happen at various points are fantastic, the beholder being my favourate! The levels are huge and so well detailed. Be warned however, this is no RPG - its an arcade style hack em up just like BGDA. Various options are available to customise the characters but the only choices worth taking are those that make your hero tougher and hit harder/faster. Can't wait till BGDA2 Q1 2004.

If you're reading this, the chances are that you have either played the Baldur's Gate (PC) games or 'Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (1 and 2) on the Xbox and you liked them so much that you are trying to find other games which are similar. For the PC RPG fans this game (like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance) will be a bit of a disappointment because it much more closely resembles the PC 'Diablo' games.

On the other hand, if you played and loved Dark Alliance (and perhaps the very similar 'Champions Of Norrath' on the PS2) then Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes is exactly the same kind of action-RPG with the same 3D isometric look-down viewpoint as in the other games. One nice touch here is that you can zoom the camera quite close in on the characters - when you do, you'll see that the character models are really nicely detailed. However, you'll usually play the game with the view zoomed out to its widest extent so you can see incoming attackers while they are still a dozen or so strides away.

If you have played the other console games mentioned above you will find that the scenery and graphics in Heroes are noticeably less slick or varied, and a bit more monotonous than those in the other games. However, the game redeems itself in other ways - I find that the ratio of found treasure to the prices of items in the shops is extremely well balanced, especially on a two player run through. Another nice touch is the addition of a 'give' action in the inventory screens so you can pass an item you hold straight to another player.

This is an old game now, and if you are interested in the single-player experience, you should stay away from this (old graphics, old gameplay, old everything), BUT if you are interested in co-op... this is one of the best games you can get!
I played this game for hours and hours with my partner, and it's great fun. You come to identify with your character, its strengths and weaknesses, and you play as a team leveraging on each character's advantages.
I also love that the gameplay is simple enough to not require reading the manual, but rich enough to be interesting. For example, your characters have a wide array of spells to acquire as you progress through the game, and you need to decide which ones are most useful to defeat the foes your facing each time. The story is interesting enough, although mostly linear, with little possibility of changing path.
If you are looking for a good co-op game, get this game!
My only disappointment is that there have been no games like it since this one and BGDA2... It's all online multiplayer these days.
