Hack by numbers,
This review is from: Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (Xbox) (Video Game)
I bought this game expecting it to be like Baldurs gate on the P.C(a classic role playing game)However what i got was a more arcadey style of game a bit like the arcade classic Gauntlet.
The game can be played either single player and multiplayer and playing the single player i found a little dull and soon found my thumb hurting from bashing the attack button as wave after wave of monsters attacked me.
However get one of your friends around and the fun really starts! the multiplayer part of the game is great! you are also able to import characters from your previous saved games.
The graphics are are nice and bright and the water and spell effects are very nice,The game also has lots of goodies to pick up, swords,bows armour etc as well as shops to buy and sell them in.
I found the game a little short but that might be because when playing multiplayer i found it so much fun,so give this one a go but bring a friend along for the ride.
Also the game is available for around the £20.00 mark now and i also think a follow up game is being released soon.
