If you really have nothing better to do, than go for it.
Having never played D&D in person, it took quite a bit of getting use to the rules. Especially the turn based combat. Very frustrating.
I had to buy the strategy guide so I'd know what to do, otherwise the scope and width of this game would leave me confused. Though the guide made a world of difference, I still crawled through the game.
Finally I lost interest and played other games. Better games. Couple years go by, and decided to pick it up again. Dungeon by dungeon crawled by, until again I got too bored and moved on.
Finally, another couple years go by. Now I'm 2 computers later, and my conscience caught up with me about finishing what I had started years ago. YAWN.
Screw it. Read the manual to get the story end. Moving on. Oblivian calls...
