Summary: Champions of Norrath, fun game with an interesting story to it; Return to Arms, it feels like the same exact game as the first one (same attacks, no new customizations *oh, wait...ONE NEW hairstyle*, and the missions feel empty compared to Norrath). I find it hard to believe that so many people find the sequel (if you can call it that) "refreshing", unless you haven't played Norrath.

Summary: Champions: Returns To Arms had the advantage of the success of the first game Champions of Norrath using a hugely improved gameplay and mechanism of Baulder's Gate. However, Returns to Arms itself is a very disappointing instalment for the series...if there is going to be another one. Basic gameplay wise it is very similar to the first game.
Summary: because I don't want to waste too much more time on this game. If you've played Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance you've played this one. There's a slight variation in the gear you can buy, but if what you want is shopping head for the mall. The one selling point is the 2-player aspect, but both myself and my co-player got bored half way through, and the game's been sitting on the shelf ever since.
Summary: I liked the prequel "Champions of Norrath - Realms of Everquest" and was looking forward to an innovative sequel in the "Return to Arms". I was very disappointed to see that there is very little that's new in this version. Except for the two "new" characters, the characters look EXACTLY the same as before, with the same spells and abilities. The much-hyped "total camera control" amounts to false advertising, in that it allows a very slight zoom and that is all.
Summary: Sadly to say, I am not all that impressed. There are a few glitches that could make this game unplayable for some. Non of the +health and mana bonuses seem to be working for both myself and other people. My imported wiz had several of them in place, never took effect. A weapon with an enchanment, be it Ice, Fire, or Lightning, will have their enchantment overwritten by a wizard's Ice, Fire, or Lightning weapon enchantment spells providing they cast aura large enough to...
Summary: Ich habe Teil 1 von "Champions" mit viel Freude durchgespielt und hatte kaum etwas zu bemängeln außer ein paar grafische Patzer. Bei Teil 2 musste ich allerdings meinem Ärger Luft verschaffen! Es kann nicht sein, dass ein so "unfertig entwickeltes" Game auf den Markt gebracht werden darf! Wie bereits gesagt wurde, einige Bugs verhindern das Vorankommen, und wenn man nur einen Speicherplatz angelegt hat heißt es: von vorne anfangen! Das ist purer Frust.
Summary: Schade Schokolade! Champions - Return to Arms hätte wirklich ein Hit sein können. Vom System her ist das Spiel eine ganz brauchbare Alternative zu Diablo 2 oder Baldurs Gate. Diverse Gegenstände, Quests die zu erfüllen sind, Charakterwahl und individuelles Ausbauen von seinen Fähigkeiten. Das sind die Stärken von Champions. Hier steckt viel Potential.
