Pensate, piace anche a chi odia gli RPG in genere!
„Curse Of The Azure Bonds“ ist ein absolutes „Muß“ für alle Spielefans.
The Games Machine (UK)
Overall, CAB is an excellent RPG, much improved and polished over POR. It is good to see SSI actually improving the system rather than sitting back on their TSR licence. With a good storyline and excellent graphics CAB is recommended whatever version you have.

C 64-Rollenspielfans kommen an Curse of the Azure Bonds kaum vorbei. Der Nachfolger zu “Pool of Radiance“ sorgt für nächtelange Spiel-Sessions.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Curse of the Azure Bonds is a good follow up Pool of Radiance, but it's still mainly a hack and slay game. There are problems to be solved, but they seemed too simple and just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. Hack and slay role players will love it, but the more cerebral role players may find it lacking. If you fall into the latter category, stick with Ultima.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Fazit: Curse of the Azure Bonds ist ein würdiger Nachfolger in der beliebten AD&D-Reihe von SSI und hat die gestellten Erwartungen voll erfüllt. Es ist ein Fantasy-Rollenspiel, welches den Käufer monatelang fesseln kann.

Außer bei der Amiga-Version hat sich die Grafik gegenüber dem Vorgänger geringfügig verbessert, Sound und Handhabung lassen jedoch keine Unterschiede erkennen.
