Classic D&D style game with lots of attention to detail

  • Summary: Very good game! Similar to the Baldur's Gate series or even Ultima Pros- AN ACTUAL PLOT, lots of gameplay for the money, more of a thinking and strategy game than many new games, will run on almost any computer (even my old laptop), lots of quests and not too linear, not too complicated to remember...
