Summary: Unrelated to the Baldur's Gate computer game, this is a great console multi-player RPG, in the top 4 I've ever played. I think the sequel is a LOT better, though, with better game play, better plot, and better humor, although the class options were completely changed instead of merely expanded.
Summary: I have never sat down and played a Dungeons and Dragons game, my boyfriend is in to it so I get the jist of things. This game touches mildly on Dungeons and Dragons and is more of a Diablo style game. You go through a story, battle various types of creatures and enter odd lands.
Summary: BALDUR'S GATE: DARK ALLIANCE turned out to be a better game than I expected it to be. I got it on discount and didn't think it would be that entertaining, but it looked different and I was in the mood for something more action/role-playing oriented, so I picked it up.
Summary: I picked up Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (BG:DA) for Playstation 2 after finishing Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes on the Xbox. I'm familiar with Bioware, who consistently makes games I really enjoy (including Neverwinter Nights and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic).
Summary: This is a perfect chip off the Baldur's Gate series that has done so well on the PC. As with all of them it is a third person rpg composed primarily hack, slash, and bespell. Add a dash of sneak and run, and you have the entire spectrum of strategies available.
Summary: Anyone that played the D&D card game or the D&D PC series will thoroughly enjoy this game. You can choose between 3 characters (Human Archer, Dwarf Warrior or Elf Wizard) and later a secret character.
Summary: "Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance" is port from a popular PC game. If you like RPG's but don't like having to go though menu after menu in order to fight just one enemy, then this is your game. The first thing that hits about this game is its amazing graphics.
Summary: I thought Dungeon's & Dragons was long dead, resting comfortably in a grave with a colourful wreath of the success in endured in the 80's. I had never heard of the Baldur's Gate numerous times for the PC, and the last game I played of Dungeon's & Dragons was all the way back with "Slayer" on the...
Summary: Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance provides the player with fast action gameplay while providing RPG elements. The gameplay can best be compared to Diablo (without the mouse clicking) and with two players feels like playing a modern day version of the original Gauntlet.
Summary: As many others have pointed out this game is very similar to Diablo, only in 3D, and not as good. Which is not to say it's a bad game, it's not, it's quite good in fact, but its flaws keep it from being great.
