A pleasant surprise,
This review is from: The Bard's Tale (Xbox) (Video Game)
The bards tale is a nice break from the traditional RPG's out at the moment with a main character who would rather chase women and become rich than do anything slightly heroic. Though not that long, you can probably finish the game with 15-20 hrs depending if you do the side quests or not, it has a dry sense of humour that will keep you smiling and even get the occasional laugh as you listen to the interaction between the bard and the various characters he encounters, including the narrator. The graphics are not brilliant quality but do a good job so you won't be nit picking and although it may take a couple of hours you will get quite caught up in the story lines, though some language may not be appropriate for the very young. All in all a good game that will keep you amused, worth buying.
