Good RPG, but too short!

  • Summary: I really wanted to give this game higher than a 3 (in fact, call it 3 1/2). It had excellent graphics, an absorbing storyline, an excellent combat system (the best I've seen to date, in fact)and well-developed characters.

Good game but a little monotonous

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

Baldurs Gate Review

  • Summary: The Baldurs Gate series for the PC is probably some of the best RPG's you can buy. When this game came out for the PS2 I rushed out and bought it. Unfortuately the Playstation 2 game isn't quiet up to scratch. I completed it after 8 hours total play!!!

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.

good but not fantastic

Amazon
8 April 2003
  • Summary: this is just a short note to say that although this game is entertaining itis not like the pc baldur's gates. It has been converted from a D&D style RPG in to a "hack and slash" platform game.

Hmmm!

8 April 2003
  • 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...

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.
