Good game but a little monotonous

Amazon
17 December 2001
  • Summary: I rented this for a couple of weeks as a "test drive" before buying. In the end I decided not to buy a copy for myself but to be honest I might rent Baldur's Gate again to continue the game. I know I won't be deleting my save file anytime soon. Technically it is a notch above average. The graphics are great, if a little small due to the distance of the 3rd-person perspective. Lighting effects are excellent and the characters have good animation.

Hmmm!

  • Summary: I must admit I only recently got this and to be fair it's not that good,it looks great but the paltry three classes are a bit stingy and not starting with a character weapon is naff,the archane archer doesn't start with a bow and knows no spells,the fighter starts with a butter knife and although the sorceress starts with a spell you've only got to have roasted a couple of mice and you've no mana left!

Bit of a let down

  • Summary: Being a serious RPGer I thought this would be a challenge as all RPGs should be. Whilst the plot and gameplay were good the longetivity was terrible, I managed to complete the game in less than a day. However if you are new to this type of game then I would recomend this game to otherwise stick to ones like final fantasy or kingdom hearts.

Fun, but no substance

  • Summary: Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is pretty fun, but short, and it lacks much in the way of a story. Just to mention, it is nothing like it's namesake (The computer series). It is basically just a hack n' slash action RPG. Not the worst of that type of game, but it is far from the best. The gameplay is fairly basic.

A one night stand.

  • Summary: I belive the title about sum's it all up.This is a great RPG for PS2 by Forgotten Realms.But only if you got money to blow or a mind to waste.This is a very short game.It consists of only three towns where you buy and sell items/Equipment.Only three pre-made classes;Dwarf-Warrior,Human-Archer,And a Elven Sorceress.Theres also a hidden charecter some may have heard of "Drizzt" a Dark elf ranger,A intresting charecter you get to unlock a extra mode with and get to play...

other reviews are mostly telling it like it is

  • Summary: the graphics are great. the gameplay is nice. the adherence to the new school of +5-rings-are-laying-around-everywhere-D&D is fast and loose and a little annoying. it's also, as others have said, a really good 2 player game. it's way too short though. beating a game in 8 hours the first time you play it, on the regular difficulty level, is way too short.

Splat that rat

JUSTIN C SHAW, Amazon

  • Summary: Well I purchased this game so that my wife and I would be able to have a good two player game. There just aren't many adult two players out there. Turns out we were searching for three hours in the beginning for a darn rat that was a glitch in the system. My wife went back to the states fora bit and took the ps2 with her and she says it is great now that we aren't looking for something that isn't there.

Buldars Gate: Dark Alliance

Richard M Rayner, Amazon
28 June 2002
  • Summary: Some reviewers have stated they completed this game in 8 hrs, it can be done, but not at the hardest level, they have also failed to mention there is a fourth character to unlock & as four being limited to 7 or 8th level? Not true. My dwarf fighter is 21st level & still going strong. This game tho' has a strong story line, easy user interface, fabulous graphics & sound.
