This review is from: Legend of Drizzt Board Game: A Dungeons & Dragons Board Game (Toy)
While I'm not a fan of the D&D Drow Poster boy that is Drizzt, this game is really great. Building on the excellent Wrath of Ashardalon it brings the characters from RA Salvatores books to life in a board game.
The included miniatures are unpainted but serviceable and if you're into miniatures you can paint them up as I have done with mine.
There are even options to play as some 'heroic villians' - a new mechanic allowing you to play as infamous characters such as Atermus Entari.
However - be warned that the heros in this are more powerful than the characters from the other two games, so if you plan to use them in Wrath or Ravenloft you might need to make it more difficult.
It's a great game, with probably the best selection of miniatures - if you already own one of the other games or are into drizzt then get this! Great fun and if you are 'forever alone' it is soloable.

Recently purchased this game, and wanted to add some of my thoughts about your review.
Firstly, I totally agree about the mini's, they are really amazing, especially the monsters (Errtu in particular) and I can imagine that those who like to paint will get a lot out of this aspect of the game. Even for those who don't they are great peices and really add to the game.
For me a lot of the game comes from knowing the characters involved really well, but I have played with a number of friends who have not read any Drizzt books and love the game, as they love the dungeon crawling feel to it. Further to this as you have said playing villians such as Artemis Entreri is another big plus.
