If you loved Baldur's gate style RPG's this one IMO was a lot better than any of the D&D based series. The story is excellent, the gameplay is really good. I'm not too familiar with the mgic system as I chose to go down technology. I had a blast playing it one of my all time favorite RPG's
Similar to D2 visuals, just much sharper and "purer".
Absolutely fantastic game. The one game that stole my year 10 holidays from under me. Great story line, characters, skills, monsters, battle systems, soundtrack, locations. Anything else you can think of, it had it, minus a good multiplayer aspect, however this is most likely due to the fact that no one played it online.
Great buy if you can find it. I recently bought a new copy for $20 AUS after hiring it out so many times.
