While it has an interesting story, Ruins of Myth Drannor is a mess of a game.
Pros: Immense and detailed maps, Interesting storyline, the music and sound effects were pretty awesome, the soundtrack and novel included with the boxed set rocked.
Cons: Characters move far too slow over the huge maps, Enemies are far stronger than your party which forces many restarts, Party members seem to miss 90% of their attacks even on weaker enemies, Must place markers on the map on your own to mark any and all places of interest so you can find them later.
Recommendation: Even for the hardcore D&D fans, avoid this game. Its one of the worst D&D franchise games to have ever been made. I highly suggest reading the book that came with the boxed set however.
