Well this game has been around for a while, and I still love it. Brought it orginally when it came out on the PS2 and it was stolen before I could finish it. So brought the PC version for my old XP computer and had a great time again. But it broke my heart when I got a new computer with Windows 7, and I found out that this retail version does not work on Vista or Win7, bummer.
Anyway the games is very good. The humour is very good especially the narrator and the bard conversations. This is no hardcore RPG but if you like Diablo then this is similar but with a good plot. Some of the reference made in the game you will have to be a real nerd to understand, but the jokes pop along fast enough for most people to have a laugh. There are a few control problems but you get used to them pretty quickly and there is nothing game breaking. Voice acting is very good, Cary Elwes is “The Bard” (from movie Robin Hood Men in Tights and the Princess bride fame). The music has some good moments as well. Best moment: Break dancing zombie (the bards comment at the end sums it up).
Now for the good news, for the Vista and Win7 users, Steam has released a version that is compatible with the newer systems. I have a 1080p screen so video does look a little blocky, but I can live with that as the in-game graphics are fine.
So to sum up good game, but if you have Windows XP get this version, if you have Vista or higher get the Steam version. Price wise they are about the same.
