Yes, the sequel is better!

The Good

I enjoyed everything that I liked about the original Bard's Tale. The best part was that there was so much *more* to it! You weren't stuck in the same town, you were allowed to travel to different places.

The Bad

No automapping. I still have (somewhere) the original graph paper that I used to draw out the dungeons and mazes on after I moved forward a step and turned a 360 to determine where the walls and doors were in the new square.

The Bottom Line

An excellent follow up to an excellent game.
