GameBanshee Feature: Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance Review

Before we let loose on the sequel, we decided to go back in time for a bit and dish up a review of the original Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance from Snowblind Studios and Black Isle. A snippet:

For those without much experience with RPGs, Dark Alliance is a good way to get your feet wet. Those who enjoy RPGs, but wouldn’t mind a little button-mashing fun when it comes to combat should enjoy it as well. Basically, the gameplay consists of running through dungeons, or hallways, or swamps, and beating the crap out of whatever gets in your way. Because the ranged weapon system leaves something to be desired, combat mainly involves running in circles with your opponent as you try to hit him in the back without allowing him to hit you.
