Summary

A great game, but I liked its sequel much better.

The Good

Eye of the Beholder is a true classic. It spawned two sequels and while it may not have been the first, it was definitely the best RPG game for the PC at that time (in my opinion, anyway). It had great graphics and decent engine, wonderful music, a (somewhat) innovative and effective control system and good storyline.

The Bad

Unforunately, the plot is not nearly as well executed as it was in Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon, and not as interesting. Also, the game was loaded with bugs which, unfortunately, stopped me from completing it.

The Bottom Line

A real classic, shadowed by its amazing sequel, but good in its own right. Get it, play it, move on the second and be happy.
