Summary: I am sorely craving a kick ass solid Western style RPG for the PSP. I almost peed when I saw this game on the upcoming titles list several years back, which I think was also about the time I was finishing up the Neverwinter Nights trilogy on PC.
Summary: Read the review : D&D fan not impressed, July 21, 2009 By Steven Rinck (Lisle, IL USA) He really hits a a lot of good points. Menu system is garbage at best, often find myself frustrated by it.
Summary: Not nearly as fun as many of the reviews I read here at Amazon suggested. Although I did enjoy it (and was thrilled with the inclusion of psionics), the game is often tedious, having to move characters individually as opposed to by groups, which really slowed down the progression of the game (at...
Summary: The only other "tactics" game I've played before this was Final Fantasy (both the original and the DS), so I had high hopes going into this. I imagined a game laid out basically the same way except using the very nice D&D 3.5 rules set. Sadly, the execution was mediocre at best.

Summary: For $2[...] I got what I expected. A steep learning curve, even though I already knew 3.5 rules (I had to keep looking up spells, as well as how the mind flayers kept murdering me). A large variety of character customization (but not enough faces).
Summary: Let's get right to the thing most people interested in buying a D&D game are going to be worried about: how faithfully does it interpret the rules of the game? The answer is, quite frankly, poorly.
Summary: I bought this game for my husband as a gift. He absolutely loves it and plays it almost everyday. However, I am so incredibly disappointed with the glitches. The game keeps crashing in the same spots.
Summary: I was very excited when I heard a D&D game was coming to the PSP. The good points are the ruleset 3.5. Follows the rules of D&D perfectly. The bad point is the clunky menu system and trading weapons.
Excerpt: Folowing the sucess of BG, BGII and Icewind dale Tactics uses the D&D gameworld as the backdrop. As with Temple of elemental evil the new 3.5 rules are used, complete with roll based turns and rules.
Pros: Follows on from the BGII and Temple of Elemental Evil titles
