Fantastic game for co-op play

NtU , GameStop
23 November 2008
  • Summary: This is one of the few games out there that has true co-operative play. I particularly like that the co-op play is full-screen (this means your characters can't go TOO far from each other, but this is still much, much better than having a split screen). The action in co-op looks very much like the 'Lego Star Wars and Indiana Jones' model, so if you like that, you will like this game.

Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance Reader Review - 7.9

Hotcharity, IGN Entertainment
7 April 2004
  • Conclusion: I really enjoyed this game. As a former geek and D&D player, I can say that this game represents the perfect combo of video game and RPG. It's a fun hack'n'slasher that has enough RPG stuff to keep dice-rollers happy. There are ton's of weapons and armor to use, plus a great selection of spells and feats. The story line is a bit generic, but who cares? It also has a kick-ass two player co-op mode! You and a friend(or enemy) can beat up some gelatinous cubes!

  • Summary: Im not going to write anything long, for those of you who have not yet played or even heard of Baldur's Gate... for shame. The game many of us know and love and thanks to love-the-movie it arrived the next day in what appeared to me to be pristine condition, the manual entirely intact, no signs of where and tear, perfect l-t-m I doff my cap

Not so much Baldur's Gate Lite as Baldur's Gate Weightless

GrahamG, Amazon
11 August 2006
  • Summary: The original Baldur's Gate (PC) games, along with the quirky but brilliant Planescape: Torment, were superb, involving, immersive games which between them claimed at least 3000-4000 hours of my life, and so when I saw a Baldur's Gate / Bioware badged game for my recently acquired Xbox I didn't hesitate to buy it. A Baldur's Gate game I hadn't played? How could I resist? So first the bad news: Dark Alliance is a very slick 'Diablo' clone, and unfortunately nothing more.

Diablo with platform aspects

  • Summary: Well, all the reviews fail to mention this: about halfway through the game you have to cross a field of 7x7 (or 9x9) tiles from one way to the other side, while jumping the tiles fall from under you. If you fail, you die. I tried it for about 100 times, then searched the internet for hints, no solution. This ridiculous part of the game (what on earth has it to do with gaming? If i wanted arcade platform aspects i would have bought other games!
