Temple of Elemental Evil Review

GameSpot has posted a review of Temple of Elemental Evil, giving the RPG an overall score of 7.9/10. The final paragraph to follow:

Despite its bugs, The Temple of Elemental Evil stands as one of the most authentic PC Dungeons & Dragons experiences of the past few years. Rather than try to deliver some sort of epic, original storyline, the developers paid homage to a classic D&D campaign by faithfully capturing its settings and its challenges in a computer RPG. The result is a hack-and-slash game that’s made entertaining by its complex combat system and great graphics and that suitably rewards your efforts as you survive numerous, difficult encounters to find your characters becoming much stronger. It’s too bad that the game is rather rough around the edges, as issues with the interface and gameplay can occasionally undermine the fun. Then again, The Temple of Elemental Evil has some decent replay value, for good measure, due to its different intros and endings and to the overall depth of the highly refined game system that the developers managed to translate from the printed D&D rulebooks to a very good computer game.
