    This is one of the original Gold Box series of D&D games. By todays standards it may not be anywhere near as good in graphics or sound, but when it came out it was great! I remember the suspense building when I realize... Read Full Review

    my first rpg

    I'd almost forgotten about this game but it was probably one of the original PC rpg's that got me hooked on D&D. I just thought i'd write this review to pay my respects to an all time classic. I remember the box art most... Read Full Review

    Solid Dungeon Crawler

    It really helps to know the rules of 2nd Edition AD&D when you play this game. I supposed you do not need to know the rules, but personally I like knowing whats happening and why. I like knowing what my stats give me for... Read Full Review

    Solid Dungeon Crawler

    This is just a recap of my PC review of this game. The two are identical from what I could tell. PC might be a little easier to play thanks to the mouse, but thats about it. It really helps to know the rules of 2nd E... Read Full Review

    patience required

    This was my first RPG i think and I played it for ages. The graphics weren't revolutionary and the only thing I remember about the sound is the frightening sound effects, like the sounds spiders made in one of the level... Read Full Review

    I have to say that this was my very first RPG. It was the beginning of a great journey through 3 games, the next better than the other but all with the same essence. And this is my first review in English too. The ch... Read Full Review

    Only for catalans.

    Aquest va ser el primer joc que em va deixar empremta. N´havia sentit a parlar i havia vist algunes imatges, i m´havia creat una sensació d´ansietat terrible perquè en comparació als jocs que jugava en aquell moment aque... Read Full Review

    It showed the way all future rpg's would take. A TOTAL classic.

    The most wonderful thing about this game? it was the very first to put you right in the middle of the action scene. In others rpg's at that time, you were told that you were in a creepy dungeon, it was dark, etc., but i... Read Full Review

    Difficult, repetitive but somehow addictive dungeon-crawler.

    Hmm, where to start with "Eye of the Beholder"...When the game loads up and you start the game you choose your party. There are a fair amount of options here, including all the standard AD&D game ones (i.e. choosing the ... Read Full Review

    Taken for what it is - an old-school immersive dungeon crawler - this game still holds up today.

    Vanquishing the mighty (and eponymous) Beholder at the end of the game is one of the most satisfying RPG experiences to be had. I have killed the Archdemon of Dragon Age - and survived (!) - I have saved defeated more th... Read Full Review
