Fantasy Role Playing Excitement

The Good

This game had everything a fantasy gamer could want: fighters, paladins, wizards, elves, dwarves, and even hobbits! Dungeons, monsters, treasures - plenty of exciting challenges that unlocked the imagination.

The Bad

Getting past level 1 was almost silly - the initial game balance was a little bit out of whack.

The Bottom Line

Bard's Tale was a great game of dungeon-delving, a computerized D&D spin-off. I had loads of fun building my characters, creeping through tunnels, fighting monsters and collecting treasures. For role playing enthusiasts, the game provided the perfect opportunity to imagine warriors and paladins swinging their swords against the forces of chaos and wizards casting spells and pursuing power. Elves, dwarves, hobbits and humans united against evil - and it was all up to your party of adventurers to save the realm!
