  • I like this game as it is simpler than Champions and far more fighting oriented
  • Baldur's Gate is a well known stop point in Forgotten Realms, so a certain level of familiarity comes with this game and I love it
  • The story is interesting, beginning in a tavern and using portals to travel to different parts of the world
  • I don't like the fact that the characters' genders are pre-determined, leaving someone who wishes to play a female character with only the option of using a sorcerer
  • I would recommend this game to a new RPG'er or someone looking for a simplistic hack-and-slash style game

      Like Champions of Norrath, it’s later counterpart, Dark Alliance follows a hack-and-slash game play style with a mild story to keep it moving. I like this game as it is simpler than Champions and far more fighting oriented.

      Baldur’s Gate is a well known stop point in Forgotten Realms, so a certain level of familiarity comes with this game and I love it.

      The story is interesting, beginning in a tavern and using


      portals to travel to different parts of the world.

      Like Champions I wasn’t overly fond of the overhead camera view, or the way the map overtakes the screen.

      But I do like the way the map is designed to work, and I do like the simplicity of the game.

      Baldur’s Gate offers 3 levels of difficulty, with three different classes to choose your character from.

      I don’t like the fact that the characters’ ...


      • genders are pre-determined, leaving someone who wishes to play a female character with only the option of using a sorcerer.

        Dark Alliance doesn’t have a random dungeon creator, so the game gets mundane quickly.

        I also found that the character’s progression did not match the progression of the game, so it was required to play the first few levels several times just to keep up the character balanced with the monsters, which I

        didn’t like very much.

        This game uses the same inventory and store interface as Champions, which is a bonus, and also uses gate scrolls for quick travel.

        I like this, as too much foot travel gets quite boring.

        I also like the variety of monsters and levels in this game.

        I would recommend this game to a new RPG’er or someone looking for a simplistic hack-and-slash style game.

        This is a simple, yet fun, but quickly worn out adventure.
