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 is the worst part of this game. There is just about no music to talk of, which really does not work well with a dungeon crawl game. Sound effects are bland and that's being generous. Alot of work should have been put into this game because of how it plays, which sadly wasn't. The gameplay is basically Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale turnbased, with 3rd edition rules. Characters move a little to slow, so battles take entirely too long. The game in general is pretty boring. Having items that could be found somewhat regularly and that were atleast somewhat decent would have made the game a bit better, but sadly it's just a dungeon crawl with little 'loot'. Again, this game isn't the worst game ever, but I still wouldn't recommend anyone to get this. Try Greyhawk: Temple of Elemental Evil if you want a turnbased RPG, Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor is too dull.
