Summary

A champion RPG for it's time.

The Good

The game has a never ending quality about it. Just when you think you've finished a level, you can find secret areas and such. The game play is outstanding, with it almost perfectly imitating the real AD&D game, and I'm still interested in playing after owning it for ~ 10 years. The graphics are good, and so is the sound quality.

The Bad

At the end of each level there is a ladder and it asks you to enter three specific words from a book. I don't have that book anymore. So I'm confined to the first level. And you have to have quick eye-mouse co-ordination to attack.

The Bottom Line

A very good game in all respects, and true to the game of AD&D.
