Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II review (PS2)

  • Excerpt: Mordoc illustrates he's smarter than everyone, which proves to be a mistake, as that sort of tomfoolery will DEFINITELY turn your attention towards him. Also, there are a couple of optional areas you can raid for treasure and each character has his or her own specific side quest. All in all, you'll spend a good number of hours killing stuff and collecting treasure.

  • Summary: Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II is very good, but it's certainly not the greatest Action RPG. With solid gameplay mechanics, a relatively long lifespan and a decent multiplayer mode, it should keep RPG fans who are looking for a more action occupied role playing game for weeks, maybe even months. The audio and visuals work well together, and the intuitive controls and commands keep the pace rolling forward at a steady pace.

  • Excerpt: Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance II is an enjoyable sequel to its popular hack and slash RPG ancestor both in story and gameplay. Escalating the 10-15 hour, 4-chapter, relatively linear gaming experience, five diverse-class and appealing characters are now available for adventuring from the start each with its own set of missions, and a new-fangled item-making workshop lets the player create powerful, exotic items.

  • Excerpt: Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance was an action-RPG that was heavier on the action than the role-playing. Since the game was set in Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe, it could draw upon D&D’s well-known well-defined role-playing elements and use them as the basis for a good hack and slash dungeon crawler. The result was an exciting game that is the closest you can come to playing Diablo on a video game console.

  • Conclusion: Starting up where the first Dark Alliance left off, a cut scene shows the three heroes of that game stepping through a portal after defeating Eldrith the Betrayer only to be surrounded by a large group of demons after which they are taken prisoner by the vampire king, Mordac. From here players will have to choose from five new characters (more on this in a bit) and set out to find out what Mordac is up to.

  • Excerpt: Luckily, carrying and switching between all these weapons is easy as pie. You are allowed to equip three weapons at any given moment, and a quick tap on the D-pad allows you to switch between the three without every going to the item selection screens.

  • Excerpt: Start New Game Load Saved Game Options Credits Something that’s struck me is just how well Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance II ‘s menu represents the game as a whole, with its simple and easy to grasp concept, set within a delightfully detailed, elegant background. The vegetation pitches and rolls violently in the wind, the clouds swirling above a distant, menacing tower on a dusty plain.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Fans of the original will be more than pleased, and newcomers are in for a treat. It may be categorized as a role-playing game, but it is by far one of the fastest and most entertaining real-time RPGs you will ever play. It will take about 12-15 hours to complete your first time through, and chances are, there may be a second, third, and even fourth play-through... the game is just that good. By yourself or with a friend, you'll have a blast. Don't miss it!
