Description

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance casts the player as one of three basic characters: an elf sorceress, a human archer, or a dwarf fighter. From humble beginnings slaying rats in the cellars of an inn, the adventurer will move on to exploring caves, crypts, and mountain passes. Naturally, it's all filled to the brim with horrible monsters, wicked traps, treasures, and fabled magical weapons. As the game progresses the player is constantly rewarded with new weaponry, new monsters to fight, and experience points to put into the adventurer's character stats to grow even more powerful. The adventurer must eventually unravel the secrets of a dark, new Thieves Guild backed by powerful mages.

Screenshots

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance PlayStation 2 Making waves. Water effects have been one of the biggest advances in gaming graphics in the past few years.
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance PlayStation 2 Heroic Trio. You choices in Dark Alliance are somewhat limited as classes and races are pre-assigned.
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance PlayStation 2 Electrifying. Spells look very pretty...whether or not their effective (like chain lightning here) or not.
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance PlayStation 2 Not the greatest of conversationalists. Most of the cut scenes are handled in the in-game engine.
