Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance - Used
Why doesnt ps3 have these types of games???
Still play this series to this day, LOVE LOVE LOVE Baldurs Gate. If i have a friend over we usually play this instead of anything on the PS3.
Much better than I had thought.
I heard about Baldur's Gate from a friend, who pretty much spends alllll his free time playing games on his computer. Though this is not the game he recommended to me, it is part of the same series, so, I figured I should try it out. First thing to note, is that there are only three characters to choose from and you cannot customize their gender, or their physical appearance: A male archer human, a male dwarf warrior and a female elven sorceress. I chose the elven sorceress, because of the fact that I prefer to use magic. I am a guy, but I do not mind that the character is a girl, but I do despise her default outfit...too oversexed...thankfully, you can buy better armor and weapons for all the characters. The graphics are actually really great, considering that this game is from 2002 - they look like 2005. The music is strong, like John Williams-esque, good match for the basic, but always changing situations this game has a habit of putting you into. The gameplay is standard classic dungeon crawling, but start on easy if you haven't played Baldur's Gate before. I know I had to. There are three difficulty levels and easy is like normal, normal like hard, and hard like PUT THE CONTROLLER DOWN NOW OR YOU'RE GONNA TURN INTO THE HULK! Lots of different enemy types, some more vulnerable to certain things than others. My faves are the giant Viking-looking guys, they're just fun to fight. That concludes my review, now will someone please tell me what the key, I got it from that guy I saved in the first level of the sewers, what does it do and where do you go to use it??? THANK YOU!
They don't make like this anymore.........
This is by far one of the best licensed games created, its amazing what the producers did with it. You will never see a game like this ever again because COD is ruining the gaming world. If you have a PS2 and love games like Oblivion, Skyrim or any of those open world RPGs then I highly advise you to buy this game along with Baulders Gate Dark Alliance 2.
This game is so awesome
This game never gets old.I've beaten this game atleast a dozen times.Perfect game to party with.The gameplay is great but there isnt much of a big story.Basically I would reccomend this game to any rpg gamers.
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is always fun.
A great interactive game from start to finish. My brother and I enjoyed some real fun nights playing two player together. This game is quick in beating but still top shelf for any rpg player hands down. A must played game in my opinion. You should have no problem beating the game within 20 hours or so on normal. It's 2nd Chapter tops the cake though for a terrific sequel and a 10 in my book.
Best game play ever. Great graphics for PS2 game!
This game is awesome! Favorite Game EVER! I've beat it like 10 times and it still doesn't get old :)
HACK N' SLASH GLORY
This is an awesome game if you like hack n' slash. You can really have a blast if you play co-op, however, it is just as enjoyable if you play single-player as well. YOu can customize your attributes as you level up. There is a great vareity of weapons to use from axes, to swords, to even bow and arrows. There are some light forms of platforming where you are jumping here and there, but nothing that is ever too frustrating or impossible to do. It is pretty meaty for this type of game but it is in the vein of D&D so if you are truly into some action RPG's, it is worth a play through.
Great dungeon crawler,for early 2000's
I played this one solo,and co-op,and it was a blast! Good game under the D&D label.Worth playing with a friend.Upgradable characters, weapons,and armor.Great controls,and the graphics and combat movements were good for their day.
It's one of the best games I've ever played.
I love this game so much. I also love the second one. I SO wish they would make a 3rd. I would go insane. Anyway, I would, and have, recommened this game to several people already. I've played it several times, and it's awesome EVERY single time. :] Play it and thank me.
Amazing but not much customization
This was a great game amazing graphics although charactar customization... there isnt any.You choose from a dwarven fighter, an elven sorceress and a human archer... thats really it. Other then that it was an amazing game... but the story could us a little work but the graphics were really awesome and it wasnt really that challenging(I killed the final boss w/ only 2 health potions) but extreme and the gauntlet is insanely challenging! I would recomend this game to anyone who asked me about it.Also the gameplay was amazing im the kind of person, you beat it and then turn it off... but it was so fun that i was playing it before i made this post i bought it like 4 months ago. Also the sound is so vivid you feel like whats going on is right outside. The story was you're mugged and want your stuff back but... That part I wondered how much you're guy lost because in the end of the game i sold the things from the ending level and got 600,000 coins... It has a great length because after you beat the game you unlock the gaunlet, which upon completion of the gauntlet(Its really hard nothing helps you with this one.) you unlock extreme mode which if you complete extreme mode you unlock the guy used in the gauntlet(he's an awesome charactar).
