Overall, I think any gamer or NES fan will have the same reaction I did when playing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: DragonStrike. At first you'll think, "Hey, this is a pretty good game." And then, as you go further and further and get more and more frustrated will discover the same thing I did, this game presents well and then ends terribly, which makes for one of the worst experiences in video games. This is one of the reasons why I enjoy playing through games before reviewing them, because sometimes what appears to be classic ends up tormenting you beyond belief. There are various levels of suck in the 8-Bit era and beyond, but one of the worst cases of suck is the game that pulls you into its web, promising entertainment and seemingly offering it at first, to only wear you down with unnecessary toil and hardship. DragonStrike is an overwhelming disappointment when it comes down to it, and I can't really say I recommend it to anyone.
