  • Excerpt: Baldurs gate is one of those games which I took an interest to through reading a review before it came out. I found it soon after getting a Playstation 2 and I enjoyed the classic Dungeon and Dragons style game play of the game.
  • Pros: + Pros-Classic Dungeon and Dragon style game play
  • Cons: - Cons-Far too short

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance

Into Liquid Sky
3 June 2004
  • Excerpt: To call Baldur's Gate a Diablo clone would be unfair. Just because the game plays from an axonometric view and involves real-time combat against hordes of monsters does not instantly label a game that proves to have deep development and combat systems.
  • Pros: Visually impressive, Top notch audio, Great battle and experience systems
  • Cons: A little light in the story, Could use more sidequests

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance – Review

GameCritics.com
5 March 2004
  • Excerpt: The release of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance for the PlayStation 2—a high-profile PC franchise appearing on a console—is something unusual. This is not entirely new, as the Ultima series made appearances on consoles in addition to its original PC releases.

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance

Playstation Illustrated
20 February 2004
  • Excerpt: Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is one of the most graphically impressive games I've seen on the PS2. This comes not from the articulation of the characters; although they're very well done, they're hard to see because of the zoomed-out view.

  • Excerpt: The overriding feeling throughout Dark Alliance is an A for effort, but an F for execution. The gameplay is carbon copy hack and slash made popular by Diablo with a stripped down version of the D&D system used in the Baldur's Gate PC games.

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
25 January 2004
  • Excerpt: I don't know why developers are so averted to bringing computer-style role-playing games (RPG) to home videogame consoles. The Baldur's Gate series is a critically acclaimed, popular title in the PC gaming world.

  • Excerpt: Listen to that music! The opening/theme tune represents Sega's answer to the original Super Mario Brothers' memorable gaming anthem. Catchy and upbeat, they both take on the task of conjuring up images of fun times to be had playing their respective consoles, in inimitably effective fashion.

  • Excerpt: One game that really ate a lot of my quarters when I was younger was the game entitled Gauntlet. It was a relatively simple game -- all you had to do was move your character around, hit the Attack and Spell buttons, and try not to get killed. But something about the game made it so much fun.

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is a Quest You Can't

GIN
7 January 2002
  • Excerpt: Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance takes the monster-hit PC role-playing series into new territory - the console platform. And thankfully, the game is more than worthy of its namesake. Hardcore PC role-players should note that Dark Alliance is at its core, a console game.
