Summary

THE role-playing game. If you haven't played this, you aren't an RPG-er.

The Good

Everything. (Well, the graphics leave a little bit to be desired, but they weren't bad for the time.)

The storyline to this day remains unmatched. Character development is great -- it's not about just being the biggest and strongest. NPC interaction is very well done. AND, the music is fabulous (unless you have the IBM PC version).

The Bad

The lack of any respectable music on the PC version.

The Bottom Line

This game was revolutionary in its day, and has not been matched since. A stunning job overall!
