Summary

Wow!!!

The Good

The MUSIC was terrific, it created the PERFECT ATMOSPHERE from the very moment you started to create your party. The PLAYABILITY was great, obviously you can´t compare it to a modern game but at the time it was awesome. Good and functional GRAPHICS.

The Bad

Well at times the games would get a bit difficult, specially if you didn´t have a hintbook. Luckily magazines proofed to be most helpful. I probably have to blame this game not only for giving me a sort of "RPG-fever" that lasts until this very day. but also for making it harder for me to overcome a mild case of arachnophobia.

The Bottom Line

It was probably the second RPG I ever played on a computer (Amiga 500) and it opened my eyes to a fantastic world. The atmosphere was just binding thanks to the graphics and the music.
