    ok my geeky brother, this old school D&D RPG is going to knock your level 3 chain mail socks off. It feels a bit like Baldur's Gate and less like Arcanum which is pretty smart in my book. I say---esse...

    This game will appeal to the classic D&D gamer in you! It certainly brought back memories of the original BG with some old-school gold-box nostalgia thrown in for good measure. Troika managed to...

    Having been new to the D&D world (my only exposure is through the video games and this only in the past year) I am finding this newest game out to be by far the most indepth of all of them. The gamepl...

    I've never like turn based games, but ToEE's deep strategy and high-stakes combat gives each encounter a tension all its own. The mechanics are the truest pen and paper D&D reproduction to date. I h...

    buggy and too brief: Had the potential to be amazing but it falls really short.

    If you like tactical combat, the turn-based combat here is pretty great. The GS review already explains why the combat is fun. But there are some other issues that bring the game down. Even after pa...

    I was not one bit disappointed by TOEE. Many recent RPG's have been underwhelming at best, or just plain uninspired. But not this one, it kind of revisits the original Baldur's Gate's sense of high ad...

    Temple of Elemental Evil demonstrates a level of faithfulness to D&D that has never been seen in a computer product before. The graphics look like the Infinity Engine (of Baldur's Gate fame), but muc...

    Polished, Absorbing, and Well Presented. I'm dissapointed GameSpot didn't give this title due credit. Usually they're right on with their scores, but I must say I've been waiting for TOEE for a...

    This is a great looking game. The 2D isometric settings look great with the 3D characters on them. The characters look great and the monsters are well done. The game follows the Dungeons & Dragons ...
