"Destiny Knight" hat die wenigen Schwachpunkte des Vorgängers noch ausgemerzt und bietet Spielgenuß im Überfluß.Wer sich bisher noch nicht mit Rollenspielen befaßt hat, kann mit diesem Programm einen hervorragenden Einstieg in diese Fantasiewelt erleben. Ein dickes Lob an Electronic Arts für ein hervorragendes Programm!

Un fabuleux jeu de rôle pour Apple. Graphisme soigné, scénario de qualité, de quoi contenter les joueurs les plus exigeants.
Overall, I am not as pleased with Bard's II as I was with Bard's I. While many interesting features have been added, and some of the difficulties (getting started in the previous game was extremely hard) of the earlier game have been removed, still Bard's II was not quite as satisfying as the first one. Too much silly repetition, plus the drawn-out finale, took away a lot of the pleasure. When the game was finished, I felt relieved rather than exhilarated. Bottom line: recommended, with reservations; this one is a long haul with several tedious interludes. Patience required.
