Review 1: Let me start by saying that if you aren't a roleplay game fan don't bother reading on as only true roleplay fans will find this game worth playing. You start the game in a city which you can ... is can be alot of fun. For everyone who needs modern Click and action control, for everyone who cannot live wiht older grafics and for everyone who does not like to read text, this game is no fun.

Dark Ages

Review 1: You play the role of a young hero who's quest is to avenge his family's death and gets caught up in more than he ever bargained for. Greyor, a menacing wizard who seems invincible is using ... either. A very disappointing game in all aspects ... I would have given this a Real Dog tag if not for the one redeeming fact that controls are simple and easy to pick up. Thumbs down for this one.

Dark Designs I: Grelminar's Staff

Dark Designs I and II are decent dungeon romp RPGs similar to early Wizardry and Ultima games: multi-character party, and first-person perspective that shifts to top-down view in combat. In and of themselves, ... the best ever made in that period, and one of the best Big Blue Disk games. And as some of the earliest games by John Carmack, they are definitely priceless to his fans and id Software historians :)

Dark Designs II: Closing The Gate

Dark Designs I and II are decent dungeon romp RPGs similar to early Wizardry and Ultima games: multi-character party, and first-person perspective that shifts to top-down view in combat. In and of themselves, ... the best ever made in that period, and one of the best Big Blue Disk games. And as some of the earliest games by John Carmack, they are definitely priceless to his fans and id Software historians :)

Dark Disciples

Dark Disciples is a fun "lite" top-down RPG that emphasizes thieving skills over battles. You start the game as a village denizen in a typical fantasy town, going about your daily business. But ... fun gameworld teeming with monsters and NPCs, Dark Disciples is recommended for fans of RPGs - especially fans of top-down classics that pay more attention to skills than complex stats. Recommended!

Dark Heart of Uukrul

Arguably one of the best RPGs ever, this game has managed to somehow be excluded from every single Hall of Fame lists. Dark Heart of Uukrul rivals the best RPGs out there! Turn-based combat with great ... somewhat weak. But given how difficult the game gets in later stages, perhaps it's all for the best. Uukrul is a definite must-play for any dungeon master or anyone remotely interested in the genre.

Dark Phear

Dark Phear is an excellent freeware multi-character RPG created in Quick Basic. The plot is negligible, but somewhat interesting: last night you dreamt of Alicia, your long-lost love who disappeared from ... Song, Dark Phear is an enjoyable romp that will keep you occupied while you are playing it. The current version is Beta, but it plays pretty well and I didn't encounter any bugs. Well worth a look.

Dark Queen of Krynn, The

The weakest of all Gold Box games in my opinion, SSI's games based on "Dragonlance" AD&D setting are still decent enough to merit attention by all RPG fans. It is not that they are bad games ... ago. Other bugs involved inescapable areas, like the teleport room in the Fire Tower or certain battlefields in rooms without doors, in which case the only way to recover would be to reboot."


Review 1: Darkspyre is a mix between an action and roleplay game. You start the game by creating the character you want to play as. Now don't get too excited since you can't really choose between much ... system that would become Dreamforge's hallmark in subsequent RPGs. Review 3: Action roleplaying game. Walk through dungeons. Gameplay is seen from above. The gameplay is good as are the graphics.

Day of the Viper

This fun action game puts you in command of Viper, a futuristic droid sent to capture a space army base back from GAR, a computer sentient gone berzerk (not unlike System Shock's Shodan). Your task is ... Along the way, fight many enemy robots and find new components to upgrade Viper's system. The interface is somewhat intuitive, but the blend of action and adventure elements is well-implemented.

Death Knights of Krynn

The weakest of all Gold Box games in my opinion, SSI's games based on "Dragonlance" AD&D setting are still decent enough to merit attention by all RPG fans. It is not that they are bad games ... for the game, like undead beasts, undead rocs, and zombie mastodons, as well as hordes of the more standard, garden-variety undead, and a contingent of death knights, including Soth himself."


Decker is a fun cyberpunk/hacking simulation set in the 22nd century, based entirely on the Cyberspace portions of Wizkid's popular Shadowrun pen & paper RPG game. Similar to Neuromancer and Uplink, ... static screens, and new jobs sound too similar to one another after a while. A fun game overall, but unfortunately not as good as Neuromancer and the more recent Uplink, two classics in the genre.

Defender of Boston

One of the most obscure shareware games ever made, Defender of Boston is a fun and surprisingly complex real-life RPG. Instead of casting you as medieval/fantasy AD&D hero, the game casts you as a ... into a fun game that may be the world's only true modern detective RPG ever made. Here's hoping that a new generation of designers will pick up this concept and make more games based on this premise.

Demons Winter

Review 1: Yet another roleplay game from SSI. Demon's Winter is not one of the best and considered the age of the game the graphics are a bit dissapointing. You start the game by creating your characters.When ... endgame. In Demon's Winter, you must search the lands and seas for spells to trap the demon-god Malifon and undo his mystical curse. Entertaining and very well-written, if not revolutionary.

Descent to Undermountain

Descent to Undermountain is a very disappointing and buggy first-person RPG from Interplay. Other than a decent plot set in the popular Forgotten Realms (AD&D) universe and using the same engine that ... be able to derive some minor, fleeting enjoyment from the character system and nifty sub-features. But when taken in context of time and technology, this is simply not what the RPG world wants."

Dink Smallwood

Here is Dink Smallwood, a very good RPG/Adventure game. It was made by RTsoft in 1999. It has good graphics and the sound doesn't strike any odd notes either. Another positive thing is that your adventures ... Well, there is something you must achieve. In the beginning you want to become a hero and beat the milder Flamsop, and after you have accomplished that task, you'll have to fight the evil Cast.

Disciples of Steel

Although definitely one of the worst RPGs ever made, Disciples of Steel nevertheless deserves recognition for its designers' efforts to combine traditional RPG elements with tactical options commonly associated ... and over and over again. Banal plot and mundane monsters add insult to the injury. Disciples of Steel will appeal only to those with infinite patience—and that's very few of us. Stay away if you can.

Diver Down

Diver Down is a great fanmade freeware RPG - the first finished game using Verge, a new and promising RPG creation program. What I like most about the game is the much-better-than-average writing and setting, ... in commercial RPGs could easily be so much better written. It is truly a remarkable achievement for such a small team, and hopefully this inspires others to work on their own computer RPGs."

Don't Go Alone

Review 1: Granddad retired in a nice old villa - only downpoint of the cheap nice house: it's spooky. Your Grandfather seems to be held prison by a demon in the upper levels of the old house. A team ... (the equivalent of spellcasting in this game), which is done with actual periodic table, and a good variety of ghosts. Overall, an above-average RPG that is not a classic, but does what it does well.

Dragon Wars

The true successor to Interplay's acclaimed Bard's Tales games that unfortunately never got as much attention, Dragon Wars is an epic fantasy game that combines the best elements of Interplay's previous ... although those looking for an easy RPG should look elsewhere, as this is certainly not a game that you can finish in a few hours, and the final battle will take all the skills and luck you have.


Betrayal at Krondor is usually credited as the first RPG to use first-person, 3D landscape. But as you can see here that's definitely not the case: Drakkhen, released in the U.S. by MicroProse, was way ... a fun, "light" RPG which boasts gorgeous graphics (in VGA) that reflects the passage of time, cool weapons, and a decent plot that could have been better integrated into the vast gameworld.

Druid: Daemons of the Mind

PC Gamer gets it mostly right with their review of Druid: Daemons of the Mind, one of the most underrated "light" RPGs ever made: "Druid: Daemons of the Mind, developed by Synthetic Dimensions ... And above all, Druid: Daemons of the Mind is a lot of fun." Recommended, but only to RPG fans who enjoy light-weight games, and adventure gamers who enjoy RPG elements in their game.

Dungeon and Dragons
Dungeon Explorer

Dungeon Explorer is a fun EGA RPG game that is similar to Vampyr, although IMO more fun thanks to more diverse gameplay. The goal is simple: create a character, buy equipment and explore a dungeon or ruin. ... genre or anyone who dislikes intense combat in RPGs should take a look. There are enough monsters to hack and slash, but it's the puzzles that distinguish the game from most other freeware RPGs.

Dungeon Hack

In a departure from EH's normal adventure/RPG norm, Dungeon Hack is a straightforward hack-n-slash dungeon crawl that is best described as a modern version of ASCII classic Rogue. Randomly-generated dungeons, with different placement of monsters and items, makes this a highly replayable dungeon romp that doesn't set the new standard, but is great fun for those who want a quick RPG fix.

Dungeon Master

Review 1: This is undoubtedly one of the most renowned role playing games in history. It was originally created for the ST in the early 80s and was one of the more successful Dungeon Crawler Games. The ... can play one of the many clones (some of which have been made using high-tech 3d engines) or the Java version which is an accurate copy of the original, only with better graphics and sound-effects.

Dungeon Master 2: The Legend of the Skullkeep

After dealing with evil in Dungeon Master, you're back for more. This time you gotta fight in the Skullkeep. Gather a party and kick some evil ass. The usual RPG of the early '90s. First person look, magic and plenty of monsters. Nothing really special about it but it still is a good game.

Dungeon Master Java

Review 1: Dungeon Master Java is a remake of the classic FTL game Dungeon Master. It is written entirely in Java, and is designed to run as a stand-alone application rather than an applet in a web browser. ... fan, whether or not you have played the original. Oh, and be sure to grab Sun's Java 2 Runtime Library - you'll need that to run the game :) Note: This download includes patch 2 already incorporated.

Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun

Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun is a fun PC-style RPG for the SEGA Genesis console. Based TSR's D&D RPG system (not AD&D), the game plays like a "lite" version of ... D&D fans, but on the other hand will entice novices to the genre. If you're looking for a fun RPG that's true to D&D rules but not overly complex, then give this old game a try. Recommended!

Dungeons of Morabis, The

The Dungeons of Morabis is a decent freeware Roguelike designed by Michael Hoenie in 1992. Your quest is to find the Amulet of Sae'Gore. During that quest, you will learn magic spells, fight boss monsters, ... only reason I put this game up here is because the real-time feature makes it one of the more unique Roguelikes. File this one under "deserve some notice, but game status well deserved."

Dungeons of The Unforgiven

Last and most graphically advanced game in Steve Moraff?s long-running series of dungeon crawl RPGs that began with 4-color Moraff?s Revenge. Game description at MobyGames sums it up nicely: ?Dungeons ... improved 3D corridor graphics. Overall, if you like the previous Moraff games, you will probably enjoy Dungeons of The Unforgiven, although Moraff?s World remains the best game in the series by far.

Dunzhin: Warrior of Ras Volume 1

Dunzhin is the first and probably final game in the slated Warrior of Ras RPG series. The game itself is a fairly typical dungeon crawl with absolutely no plot whatsoever: your only objective is to explore ... earliest versions of Moria and Rogue itself come to mind. If you enjoy good old hack 'n slash, check out this ancient but technically ahead of its time RPG that ranks among the oldest of them all.

Dusk of the Gods

This is the forerunner to classic The Summoning. I actually like the plot of this game more than its descendant's, even though it has more outdated graphics, small figures that are hard to see, and repetitive ... you like RPGs based on mythology, though, Dusk of The Gods is one of the best there is. The game is also much longer than average RPG, as you always have innumerable chores to run for various gods.

Elder Scrolls, The: Arena

Review 1: Arena is the first game in the Elder scrolls series (TES). If that doesn't ring a bell… read on. Arena takes place on a planet called Nirn (sound cheesy, doesn't it?) in the empire of Tamriel. ... much of the game the basic idea is still there with the free-roaming and character creation. In some places it is a bit crude but overall it's a great game that you will be playing for a long time.

Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall

Review 1: Aden is a world in turmoil. It is the time of the Darkfall, a malevolent plague that stains the land with its horrific offspring, and threatens to corrupt every living thing. As the story unfolds, ... RPGers and adventure gamers due to emphasis on puzzles over combat. Die-hard RPGers may frown at the simplistic gameplay, but the fascinating gameworld and plot will appeal to them nonetheless.

Escape from Hell

Review 1: A "light" RPG with a healthy dose of humor, Escape from Hell is based on an interesting premise: you are a typical guy who's one day mysteriously "zapped" into Hell. And ... are trapped in 'hell ' and you have to get out and save your girlfriend. There are some cunning puzzles to solve. This game is quite a parody on other RPG games with ofcourse lots of fun and jokes.


Evets is a decent Roguelike game that is not as good as the fuss around it seems to suggest. Trav's review says it all: "Honestly, when I took my first look at this game I don't know what the fuss ... it hasn't been touched in over a decade I decided it would fit better in this Review section than in the Preview section. Personally, I find it overall to be unattractive and not fun to play."

Eye of The Beholder 1

Review 1: Westwood's Eye of the Beholder 1 and 2 remain today two of the best real-time RPGs ever produced. They feature great graphics for their time, tons of cool weapons and devious real-time puzzles ... But it is an awesome classic. I recommend this game to those of all ages. Its learning curve is simple but its challenge is high enough to encourage even the best dungeon master, if they still exist.

Eye of The Beholder 2

Review 1: Westwood's Eye of the Beholder 1 and 2 remain today two of the best real-time RPGs ever produced. They feature great graphics for their time, tons of cool weapons and devious real-time puzzles ... out and defeat you. With the added features and the amazing graphics you will play this game for years. Eye of the Beholder II is a great role-playing strategy game that you should definitely own.

Eye of The Beholder 3

Review 1: Eye of The Beholder 3 is a disapponting final entry in the popular Eye of The Beholder trilogy, and a good example of how important a good design team is. After hiring Westwood to develop the ... stand too wel on it's own especially if you compare it to the game the original team made, Lands of Lore, which is incredible. Still for fans of the series this is still worthy end to the series.

Faery Tale Adventure 2: Halls of the Dead

Just like its predecessor, this is meant to be an introductory game for the RPG genre. You will once again meet the three brothers Julian, Phillip and Kevin. The biggest difference between the two games ... is therefore not a fault of the game). The sound, however, is more than enough to enable you to embrace the atmosphere in the game. This game should be on every gamer's "to play" list.

Final Battle

A decent PC conversion of the Amiga hit game and sequel to Legend of The Sword, Final Battle features an interesting plot (you start the game as a prisoner of evil wizard Suzar, imprisoned alone in a dank ... the parser is somewhat inferior to its predecessor and the plot less attractive. Although the graphics is grainy and the gameplay involves a lot of pixel-hunting, it's still an enjoyable little RPG.

Fountain of Dreams

As an intended "sequel" to Interplay's classic Wasteland, this game falls short of that classic in numerous ways. However, it is a good, solid RPG on its own: interesting plot (you are mercenaries ... play balance: you will die so frequently in the earlier battles that it only takes the most persistent and die-hard gamers to get to the point where your characters are strong enough. Save often!

Future War

Great one, walk around, solve puzzles. Beautiful graphics.
