Summary

Nearly-Timeless Classic

The Good

- The first Title of SSI-RPGs using the same engine, that was also the Base of "Champions of Krynn" was "Pools of Radiance". It was a great breakthrough in ComputerRPG-Gaming: Good use of the AD&D-Licence, Nice graphics (at least for the time it was released) and mainly the still challenging tactical-combat system. "Champions of Krynn" has all of this and more: A very nice story that drives the player to continue, fascinating places to explore and, because of this, a lot of atmosphere.

The Bad

There has always been some limitations to the "goldbox"-games by SSI: The player has to accept, that acting freedom is a bit limited in some spots. Of course the graphics arent good anymore.

The Bottom Line

Classic RPG released by SSI in 1990 containing a good character and a great combat-system.
