    Simply put, until TOEE arrives it's the only turn-based DD3 CRGP available. Ok, so that's not a glowing endor****t, but for old-time P&P RPG'ers like me who want some alternatives to the large number of real-time games o... Read Full Review

    Without doubt, PoR2 is the most mind numbing game I have ever played. I like to work on the principle that if I haven't finished the game, I shouldn't comment on it. However, after wasting at least 50 hours on this ga... Read Full Review

    Hard to get into, even if you're big into Forgotten Realms or D&D.

    Being a huge fan of both the campaign setting and Dungeons and Dragons in general, I purchased this games in hopes of experiencing one of the first adaptations of D&D 3.X rules. While this game may have managed to put t... Read Full Review

    PoR eh? Well it's VERY hard.

    PoR is a good game with a lil Warcraft in the mix, but just a tad bit. Not much, but still a lil. It is fun and great map and good idea, but this game is SOOOOOOOOOO HARD. Most wont be able to get 5 minutes into this gam... Read Full Review

    Totally jgalt's review. Just some adds.

    Hints: - pay close attention to the double and triple damage weapons - pay close attention to the racial items (weapons, rings and boots) - you do not really need a cleric to clear the Halls or outside. So you can tr... Read Full Review

    This game is better than the 1's 2's and 3's it gets rated, but not by much.

    The graphics are great for a D&D game still in 2D (it's not up there with Neverwinter Nights that is). Great looking characters with items that actually appear as they should, and spells that look great. The sound ... Read Full Review

    While it has an interesting story, Ruins of Myth Drannor is a mess of a game.

    Alright, Ill admit to it… I’m a huge dork for Dungeons and Dragons. There, I said it and now I’ll do my best to not feel ashamed. All joking on the issue aside, I’ve been a fan of the table top version of the game for a ... Read Full Review

    No reason to play this horrible game AT ALL!

    This game is an absolute waste of time. The only reason I could even see some one excusing the play of this game is because it's based on D&D 3rd edition, but if that's the case then you really should get Neverwinter Ni... Read Full Review
