A great game showing off Germany's very inaccessible version of D&D (in german for all those international non-german speaking fans!) in a completely smooth game that obviously recieved a lot of love from the devs. This game plays so much better than Neverwinter Nights 2, so if you liked NWN2 you'll love this, a lot more, even though it doesn't have AS much character customization (in terms of appearence, there are still a lot of classes and beautiful character models to choose from) it makes up for it with a smooth crpg experience.

Are you a fan of classic party-based isometric RPGs, like Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale? Enjoyed Neverwinter Nights? Drakensang might be for you. It's based off The Dark Eye ruleset (a ruleset that started in Germany), and as such plays differently from D&D-based games. Magic is NOT all-powerful in Drakensang, which I quite enjoy. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Drakensang so far. I would recommend at least reading through the ruleset included in the manual as the rules are quite a bit different from D&D. Definitely worth a try!

Somewhat overshadowed in the public perception by its more popular competitors like Dragon Age, Drakensang does not need to shy from comparisons with bigger titles. A rich and polished experience you don't want to miss if you're a fan of classic RPGs.
