Conclusion: This is a game that is so close to being brilliant it's painful - the humour, storyline and voice acting are excellent. It even has songs (which are very oompa loompa mostly - but very enjoyable) - the only problem is the main game play gets very, VERY tedius after you have swung your sword for the 10,000th time (no joke) - it's a shame - they have tried to vary it, with different weapons being available - but it wasn't enough for me.
Conclusion: Had this game for a week now, really dont see how anyone can call this a good game, I really did waste 30 quid buying this game. I was eagerly awaiting the release of this game and ended up being very disapointed. Take the original Bards Tale Series. Take all the good bits out. Make what is essentially single player fps oh but fix the game in a 3d isometric view , add some corny jokes to try and at least shift some boxes off the shelves and that pretty much sums up this...
Conclusion: This is a very fun and funny game. one I think that everyone should buy or rent its a very good game. The humor in the game is a lot better than that of leasur suit larry. The Best thing in this game and what makes it probably the funniest rpg ever is that of one song. That one song is the Beer Song if you don't know it by now just goto the drunken rat and have a few and listen.
Summary: Very funny game typical the characters are very cynical all Scottish characters nothing more to say....... . had a few hours of laughter trying to work out some of the different tasks just Right for myself and friends of our age group 60-65 well worth the money I paid for it.
Summary: This game is the remake of a text based game that I found lurking in the depths of an abandonwear site. I was attracted to this game by the promise of comedy or originality found in many of the early games. I was rewarded! This game promises a humorous ride through a mystical land of playful clichés accompanied with one of my favourite methods of gameplay: The story book, complete with narrator and snarky hero!
Summary: I am sad to admit that before I played this game, the last game I had played was Zelda on my Super Nintendo. And as far as being a beginer, Bard's Tale is a great way to start, it kept me amused and I was immediatly pulling all nighters. The game was easy to get the hang of and keeps me challanged with out making me feel discuraged. Great Game.
Summary: I have never been a huge fan of this genre, but bards tale is a quality little game, full of quirky little songs that get etched into the brain and some funny, and some James Bond style cheesy, gags. Admittedly once you have finished the game there is no real point in keeping the game, but for under 8 aquid, get it bought, use ur arrows a plenty and experiment with the different followers u can use and u will enjoy it.
