Summary: It seems that bird's eye action RPG's were the new wave ever since the hit Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (PS2/XBOX) was released about two years ago. Taking after BG: DA developer Snowblind, Atari tries to do the same with their newest D&D title, Heroes. The gameplay is pretty much the same as in DA, but the biggest draw of the game is being able to play through the game with three of your friends.
Summary: This is an old game now, and if you are interested in the single-player experience, you should stay away from this (old graphics, old gameplay, old everything), BUT if you are interested in co-op... this is one of the best games you can get! I played this game for hours and hours with my partner, and it's great fun. You come to identify with your character, its strengths and weaknesses, and you play as a team leveraging on each character's advantages.
Summary: This is a typical hack and slash game. And that is almost always fun. Beside from that its nice to play a game which take you back to the good old days with ADD. Me and my eight year old son has played this game alot and both he and I find it fun - but as there aint much for the brain cells to do it only get four stars from me :-)
Summary: If you're reading this, the chances are that you have either played the Baldur's Gate (PC) games or 'Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (1 and 2) on the Xbox and you liked them so much that you are trying to find other games which are similar. For the PC RPG fans this game (like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance) will be a bit of a disappointment because it much more closely resembles the PC 'Diablo' games.
Summary: Well I read the reviews and onething that wasn't really mentioned was the ability to get your friends round and sit there for hours on end shouting at each other to get their butts in gear (all in fun though). The majority of multi player games out there are competitive and this is pure co-operative. Hours of fun in the Rpg catagory. Please buy this games and force them to make more.
Summary: I got this after finishing Baldurs Gate 2 because I wanted something similar. This is excellent and, I think, a bit harder because it doesn't have so much armour and suchlike to buy. You can't make your character better or recall back to the shop and its save point quite so easily so have to be better than in the BGDA games. It is much easier to look at than BGDA and you have the zoom in zoom out to help you.
Summary: This game is ok on average but it is not something that will blow you away. I enjoyed it while i played it once but it has no real replay value. The strange thing about this game is that you can start a new adventure with an existing high level character but even in higher difficulty level the weapons, armor, experience poinds etc. are the same. It is not like diablo 2 for example. I found the graphics of the game to be very good.
Summary: I got this for christmas and I still am playing it now. Before I got this I had Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance. I thought it was brilliant the only down side being it wasn't that long. Heroes brings a more in-depth story-line which I loved. The great thing about this game is that you have to use tactics and strategy to defeat the bosses. Unlike Dark Alliance when it was just straight in and kill.
Summary: D&D:Heroes is in simple terms 4 player Baulders Gate, less repetitive perhaps but easier for the most part. If you have never played Baulders Gate, this is a classic hack and slash adventure, with enough pick ups, weapon upgrades and storyline to satisfy the rpg fan as well as quench that thirst in all of us to chop up nasty monsters. The graphics are pretty good, not the best the xbox has to offer but it certainly goes easy on the eyes.
Summary: This game is a fantastic hack and slash, it really comes into its own with 4 player coop, the xbox copes well with the 4 of you and the 20 bad guys and all the arrows spells and swords that go with it. The character progression is very good, allowing you to develop for exmple; your mage into more of a melee fighter or you rogue into an archer or a melee ninja, there are several ways to advance the characters.
