Description: A large and atmospheric RPG, (2nd of a never completed trilogy). Viewed in 1st person perspective for the 3D sections, 2D/3D for the fight sequences and overhead pseudo 3D view inside buildings. Game comes on 9 disks so playing from hard drive is recommended. Held by many to be the best RPG ever produced for the Amiga and I would have to concur with this. Innovative in many ways this is a game which is worthy of a look even if RPGs are not your cup of tea.
Notes: The english version (v1.07, 1994) was never commercially released and although very playable does contain a number of bugs which cause the game to crash. None of these bugs stop you completing the game and can all be worked around/ignored. There is a supposed patch/fix available from the Thalion Webshrine though I can't say it has ever worked with my copy.
