  • Summary: Solid classic RPG following the line of Baldur's Gate though it's based on a different game. Dungeons and areas exploration at maximum. Nice spell and combat system (but kind of difficult to comprehend at the beginning). Music and graphics very good. Only fault I want to note is the limit of 4 character group.

  • Summary: n my opinion Drakensang the Dark Eye is a good RPG that could have been great. There are certainly some great aspects to it. In particular, the skill development system is one of the best I've seen. Not only is there a large set of varied skills to develop, but not so many that I found it overwhelming, the game also takes a somewhat unique approach by letting you spend experience points to raise skills at any time and not only when reaching a new level.

  • Summary: The Dark Eye system takes some getting used to, and there's minor annoyances and sub-par voice acting, as well as a rushed ending, but overall this is a great classic RPG reminiscent of games from the peak of the genre in the '90s.

  • Summary: Highly underrated. This game has an epic scale in terms of lore, story, world, character, etc. Superb graphics and vibrant environments, gripping story. It has all that is need in order to go head to head with the best RPGs the world has to offer right now, and rightly so because medieval fantasy RPG seem to be on the decline right now. The economy, shops, crafting, stats, and skills are broad and complex. Myriads of side-quests. In essence, very high game value.

  • Summary: How in the heck i missed this game has me baffled.. I am a RPG primary player and NWN, DS, Witcher etc are in my gaming history and imo this game is if not every bit as good its better. The graphics are excellent.. the world is full and busy and lush with wonderful environments and the story and characetr layout is excellent. You don't apply hair color.. and nasal width but you have ALOT to choose from as far as heros and they end up under armor anyways..

  • Summary: Despite the weak story, this is a good old school party based RPG, much like Baldurs Gate/Neverwinter Nights seires but of course in very good 3D graphics. Although nothing really stands out as different than those games in the same type, it's still fun to play. The game does have some flaws. First thing you will notice is the bad camera, though it's not clunky enough to ruin things but just feels very uncomfortable.

  • Summary: A good, solid game spoiled by an endless stream of combat. Play Drakensang: River of Time first as it's both the prequel and a more polished game. If you like spending 40 minutes fighting mobs for 2/3 EXP each while you get from the bridge into town, a run that takes you two minutes after the mobs are cleared, then this game is for you.

  • Summary: A very solid game all round, lacks the class and depth of say dragon age origins but if you are an rpg fan then you can do a lot worse than this. First thing that grabbed my attention about this game is how leveling up and XP works, unlike most games where you gain a level you get a heep of points and or new abilities to spend all at once this game gives and allows you to spend XP points everytime you gain some, you can save them up and spend them in your primary stats...

  • Summary: Drakensang is a very good RPG games like the BG spirit. It's classic old school but it's good very good. Variety of class and specialization. The games need low requirements and it's very beautiful.

  • Summary: One of the crowning achievements of RPG games. The production value was tagged around two million euros. The developers over at Radon labs hit their stride and kept on going. They nailed the details, and the essence of tactical rpg games. The game is based off the Dark eye p&p game, very well titles have been released over the years, off such a well polished system. The combat rolls system rolls can take a while to grasp, for those unfamiliar with this niche of rpg's.
