3.0 out of 5 stars
Buldars Gate: Dark Alliance, 28 Jun. 2002
Some reviewers have stated they completed this game in 8 hrs, it can be done, but not at the hardest level, they have also failed to mention there is a fourth character to unlock & as four being limited to 7 or 8th level? Not true. My dwarf fighter is 21st level & still going strong.
This game tho' has a strong story line, easy user interface, fabulous graphics & sound. It has multi levels of play & you can transfer your character to other games, but for the true AD&D enthusiast it does seem lacking in the role playing dept. The story is not completed by the end of the game & you are left up in the air until the next chapter(s) are released.
The game also suffers from being too linear for my liking.
A dream of a game if you are a hack & slash merchent & there are ways of cheating if you think about it.
