Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Very few times do I take time out of my schedule to complete a game in one sitting…but with Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance, I could not put it down. Games that have a great storyline appeal to me the most, and the D&D Universe certainly has a ton of great tales. BG has the entire package: a great story, beautiful graphics, superb audio, all tied together with gameplay that will keep any action adventure gamer glued to their couch.

Your exploits in Dark Alliance will revolve around Baldur’s Gate, a port city on the winding Chionthar River. Baldur’s Gate is a place recently plagued by a growing evil.

Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance Review

  • Excerpt: You might think that after the success of Blizzard's Diablo 2, that there would be a ton of clones of it being released. Surprisingly, there haven't been many at all, save for a few: Darkstone, Nox, and the recent GBA version of The Two Towers have loosely followed the Diablo format. Perhaps the best Diablo clone, though, is Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance. Despite the BG name, this is far from a dedicated RPG.

  • Excerpt: > Lush backgrounds, detailed NPC's, demonic enemies, and special effects abound.  I'm not a fan of the top-down view, but its functional nonetheless.  I can also appreciate the women being so well endowed.  Heh...  You're sure to enjoy the real-time cut-scenes, which develop the storyline and provide hints.  Be prepared for impressive and unique bosses that are deadly (in a fair way).  Overall, top notch.

  • Excerpt: A legendary disappointment around these parts, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance for the Xbox packs the same gorgeous visuals and great gameplay. What's wrong with that? Nothing, except the fact that it's over almost before it's begun and the replay value is pretty much zip.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Looking forward to my vacation on the Sword Coast, I reached Baldur’s Gate late that fateful night. But before I could enjoy my first Mai Tai, a couple of muggers relieved me of my gold. I’m sure they would have killed me too, if not for a pair of town guards patrolling the area. “Stay off the streets”, one of the guards suggested, “It’s not safe here at night.” Oh great, a curfew, just what I need on my vacation.

  • Conclusion: also. Regardless, BG:DA is still gorgeous and, even on the Xbox, has little competition in its own category (I’d say Hunter is slightly better looking than BG:DA, but that’s it). Also mimicking the PS2 version, the sound remains excellent here. The clash of blades, thrum of bow-strings and pain cries of creatures and man alike are well done and involving. I always felt the sound in the game was underrated. Hopefully it will garner more notice this time around.

  • Excerpt: Nå, to år etter, har eventyret også kommet til verdens Xbox-eiere. Og til tross for sen levering er det all grunn til å glede seg, for maken til flott implementering er det lenge siden jeg har sett. Egentlig skulle man tro at trofaste tilhengere av serien ville gjøre kors-tegn og bringe frem hvitløken, da Dark Alliance stiller med rollespill-elementer som er tynnere enn vann.
