Summary: I am a huge fan of the Baldur's Gate/PS: Torment/Fallout games on the PC. I picked up this game thinking I'd have zaney NPC's coming along with me on some huge adventure full of sidequests and crazy fun.
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: 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: "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: Excellent graphics, great controls, and D&D 3rd edition rules combine for an outstanding RPG game. Unfortunately, it's shortcomings are important: Limited character types (only three of the myriad 3rd edition options are available), and length of gameplay (12-15 hours per character).
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: I liked this game very much. I liked how it was just like diablo 2. It had a much better story then on the computer. Although this game was rated Teen, it could have been easily rated Mature. When you kill a monster or human, Pools of blood go everywhere.
Summary: I was really disappointed with Final Fantasy X and a friend pointed me towards BG:DA. While it is very action oriented and a little short, it is wall to wall action with only a little box shoving and platform hopping (I hate games that add elements of Mist).
