Though I enjoyed Dark Alliance immensely, I couldn't stop thinking about all the things they could have done differently while playing the game, especially when it came to the adaptation of the 3rd Edition rules. I kept thinking how cool it would be to be able to create my own character, roll my own stats, choose my own race, my own class, my own gender and my own name. I also would have liked to be able to interact with the people in the varied locations a little more. As it is, the citizens of Baldur's Gate just provide decoration. I know this would have meant a lot more work (especially artwork) for the developers, but it could have elevated the game to something truly special. Still, I'm not here to judge the game on what it could have been but rather what it is, and what it is is still a lot of fun and just an all-around great game.
