The game shipped to stores this week, and there have been reports of a variety of problems ranging from installation issues and system lockups to full system wipes.

According to a company spokesperson, Ubi Soft is paying attention to the issues that have been reported and is gathering information. "Pool of Radiance is very important to us and we will stand by the product and do whatever we need to do to make it right," the company stated. Ubi Soft plans to provide patches and do whatever is necessary to meet customers' expectations, although no official date has been set for the release of a patch.

Along the way, players will encounter a variety of undead creatures and other monsters, as well as friendly non-player characters. The game is based on the new 3rd Edition D&D rules, and it features an intricate 3D world with detailed characters and monsters.
