このゲームについて

Drakensang is a third-person party-based RPG based on the pen & paper role-play rules of The Dark Eye. Drakensang is the first PC game for over 10 years to be based on Germany's most successful and popular role-play system.
Drakensang builds on the pen & paper rules as applied in version 4.0. The developers have optimized the rulebook specially for the PC realization in order to make the game more accessible. But the essential qualities and the depth of the original rules have not been compromised.
Intensive tactical combat and intriguing quests, embedded in a wonderfully detailed 3D graphic presentation — these are the cornerstones of the fantasy epic.
  • Experience an exciting story within a huge campaign involving numerous main and side quests
  • Adventure groups with up to four adventurers
  • Expert character-creation mode for experienced DSA fans
  • More than 40 spells, with over 30 talents and almost 40 special abilities allow a large range of possibilities for character creation
  • Numerous and varied enemies and monsters from the DSA universe, such as linnorms, ogres, undead mules, giant amoeba and many more
  • Story by original DSA authors
  • Rule-compliant implementation of the DSA licence in the tradition of the Nordland Trilogy
  • Tactical combat system with pause function
  • Varied and flexible magic system
  • Talent-based dialogue system

I tried to like it. But its too bland and boring. As others mentioned too much long distance running, limited char customisation and terrible dialogue and voice acting.

A rather fun game, I would consider one of the overlooked titles, NOT a complete 9/10 more of a 7/10 but it features interesting Dialog among characters in your group while traveling and other NPCs outside your group.

It reminds me of Baldurs Gate, one of my all time favorites. With a less dark and more colorful world. For its time it has fairly awesome graphics, not sure if its just engine problems but some computers still have trouble running it on max.

I may only have .1hr in it, On steam. I bought this game on disc and have owned it for 6 years now.

Drakensang. Where to begin on this one. This in my opinion is a decent rpg but I think the speed of the game really drags it down. All of your traveling will be done by running very slowly to get on your way. The running is so painfully slow I had to figure out how to adjust the config file to make my party faster. While this made the game so much more bareable I still had a struggle pulling away from other games and finishing this one. I got several hours into Drakensang but never finished it. The game has pretty plain environments with pretty scary character models and even worse animations. Some of the dialog has voice over but the majority of the quest dialog will not. I also found the loot/gear to be very boring. Overall I can not recommend this game as I just found it to be too much of a time waster for me.

It's basically a less polished Neverwinter Nights 2 with a less familiar system. It's not bad, maybe get it on discount if you already have NWN2

悪女な魔術師やドラゴンを退治するため、仲間を集めながらクエストをこなすというRPG定番のストーリー。クエスト内容も適量で、じっくり楽しめました。
グラフィックやキャラクターも凝っていて、セクシーお姉さんや人間くさいオヤジたちも登場して、かなり愛着がわきました。
ドイツ製のRPGを何本かプレイしましたが、質の高さには感心させられます。
オープンワールドではないのでマップは広大ではありませんが、趣向を凝らした10ほどの町や村を巡ります。
クラフト要素も不可欠で、植物を採集したり、倒した動物から素材を収集したりできます。
NPC師匠から学んだ技能があれば、工作台で鍛冶や錬金、アイテム作成ができます。

ゲームの難易度設定が無いので、中盤までのバトルは気が抜けませんでした。
装備や武器の種類は質素だし、強化アイテムや補助魔法を上手く併せないと強ダメージが与えられません。
パーティの役割分担や協力、各キャラの技能特化がクリアのポイントになると思います。
パーティ構成は最大4人で、最終的に10人くらいは仲間に出来ると思います。
召還した動物や追従するNPCを併せて「MAX6人」になるときもありますが、イベントにより独自行動を取ることもあります。

敵は「能力数値(たぶん体力)の低いキャラ」を皆で追っかけてきます!
なので、駆け出しの魔術師だと回復魔法の途中で攻撃を受けて詠唱失敗、即ダウン・・なんてことも。
早めに召還魔法を覚えるか、軽装備にして回避(受け流し)技能を強化しておかないと、四方八方をネズミに噛まれて即死です(^^
剣士系の鉄壁キャラは必須なのでしょうが、装備が重いと「回避」できず常にダメージを受けてしまいます。
頼みの魔術師や盗賊キャラは「体格」が劣るので、追われて毒に犯されやすくなります。
ゲーム開始時の主人公キャラをどう選ぶか、どう育てるかは、自分の好みと併せて、よ~く考えたほうが良いと思います。


【ゲーム性について】
武器の強さ「1D(ダイス)+5」というように、ダイス(サイコロ)を転がしてダメージ値を決定するようです。
クリア時の経験値はLV.17、主キャラの基本特性で「強さ(ST)」=19がMAXというように、関係する数値幅はタイトです。
レベルアップ時に、戦闘や魔法の「技能値」を上げるべきか、強さなどの「特性値」を上げるべきか、けっこう悩みました。
アイテム数が少ない分、修得した技能が劣らぬよう「適正」な防具を選び備える必要があります。
戦闘前には手持ち武器を「武器香油」で手入れして「打撃値」を高めたり、補助魔法で防壁や特性強化を施しておく必要があります。
何も考えず殴りこむのは無謀です(^^
戦闘ポーズを上手く使って、敵の数や特性を見極めて布陣し、戦局を判断して攻撃しましょう。
戦闘中も、ダメージを受けた仲間を「回復」したり、機を見て接近から遠隔へと攻撃方法を変えたりしないと厳しい場面があります。

【マップについて】
小さな村から始まりメインクエストを追って城を目指しますが、サブクエストは訪れた村や町の「中だけ」で完結します。
むやみに次の町へ進むと受けていたサブクエストは失敗し、元の町に戻ることが出来なくなるので注意です。
城に到着したら、砦を根城にして出かけていくことが出来るようになります。

・メニューやHUD&MAP、アイテム名の翻訳は、バッチリ問題なし
・ジャーナル内容(クエスト確認)は、ちょっと不思議部分あり
・ショップほか一般NPCとの会話は、機械直訳のため「文意」が掴み辛いかも
※重要NPCとの会話の際は、注意!(事前セーブをお奨めします)
 会話の選択により、分岐(または失敗)やイベントに突入する場合あり

【操作系】コントローラ対応なし
・マウスのみでゲームプレイ可能(腱鞘炎覚悟なら)
・フィールド指示やバトル指定などは、マウスでらくちん操作
・「Tab」キーで、パーティのキャラクターを選択(切替)できる

※マウスでしかできない操作(たぶん)
・インベントリ内の整理、アイテムの装備
・採取/取得したアイテムの、取捨選択
・習得したスキル&スペルの、ショートカット登録
・「走る」「歩く」「忍び足」の切替指定

【視点変更】
・「Q」or「E」で、水平回転(左&右)
・「Shift」キーと「W]or「S」で、上下の見下ろし
・「マウスホイール」で、選択キャラへの遠近(FOV視野)
・「右マウス」を押したまま「ドラッグ」で、フリー視点変更
・「すべて選択」キーを押すと、全キャラ選択後、ニュートラル視点に自動変更

【コントローラの使い方】
「JoyToKey」等を使ってキーを割り当れば、ゲームプレイ可能
・コントローラ:移動および視点の変更、戦闘ポーズ、マップ切替など
・マウス:アクションの決定やインベントリ等の操作など
(コントローラ片手にマウス操作・・っていう感じでしょうか)

【よくない点】
視点変更が、ちょっと良くなかったです。
壁面や樽近くの狭いポケットに込んだりすると、強制的に始点を変更させられます。
また、視点の水平は調整されませんので、ダンジョン内の坂道などで左右いずれかに振りかぶってしまうと、三半規管の居心地の悪い感じです。
また狭いダンジョン内だと、壁面内空間が狭すぎて視点がうまく取れず、戦闘時のパーティ全体を見渡せないことがありました。
コントローラ右スティックの視点変更フリーな他ゲームに慣れてしまっていたので、マウスやキー操作による微調整は余計に苦労したのかもしれません。
完成度が高いだけに、今回の視点調整はちょっと苦労しました。

This game is similar to Baldur's Gate, and it is amazing. Some issues about movement speed though, and unable to revisit previous locations. For an old game, this has satisifed my needs to play games similar to Baldur's Gate. 9/10.

I'd write a review, but it'd really just be a copy of the About This Game section.
The only thing I don't like is the ocassional grinding, but it's not too bad.
I don't have many hours on Steam, but I played the free version of this game to bits, and it was fun.
Better with friends.

A party based RPG with great potential but quite unfinished and unpolished. Some people compare it to DA:O, NWN, BG, etc...(that being the reason I bought it) but that's a big overstatement.

The bad:

1. The story/main quest - linear, blurry and uninteresting - does little to motivate the player to save the world.
2. The side quests are scarce, petty, uncomplicated and unrewarding.
3. The companions are plain, stereotyped and boring. They have no personal quests (except one), don't develop with the progress in the game, rarely have something to say about quests/environment. Puppets with no personality, no conflicts, no banters, no life. The majority of them can be recruited too late in the game, so, for the first half, you will probably be stuck with the barking amazon and the cliché dwarf.
4. There is no character customization in terms of appearance.
5. The voices are simply horrible. Luckily, the English version of the game has very few voiced lines but this breaks the atmosphere, of course.
6. The loot consists mostly of crafting stuff or cheap and unusable items. It is also unevenly distributed, there are large areas with only 3 plants and a chest and others (locked ones) with so much loot that your inventory limit is exceeded.
The game encourages you to pick-pocket everyone, but fails to mention that there are only 5 NPCs worth stealing. (How much fluff does one have to steal in order to buy an Amulet of Courage?)
The equipment is mostly generic and there are only a handful of special or enchanted items. The only set, main-quest-related, enchanted full armor looks terrible and only fitting for a warrior (additionally, at the end of the game someone had the great idea to transform it into some sort of all-or-nothing jump-suit, robbing you of the possibility to wear only parts of it).
Rummaging through the game data base I've found too many items and crafting recipes which have been left out and this is sad, because this game could benefit greatly from extra content.
7. Most areas are locked after finishing the corresponding main-quest part. I can't phantom the reason behind this.
8. Rogue considerations:
a) stealth is useless in terms of combat or stealing, it only comes handy in certain scripted conditions. You may unrealistically steal items in front of people with no penalty whatsoever;
b) there is NO double-wielding;
c) there is a large variety of traps but no reason, opportunity or fun to use them;
d) disarming traps, picking locks, etc... brings no XP.
9. Strange behaving camera in buildings and underground.
10. Disappearing corpses during cut-scenes.

The good:

1. The visuals are still sharp after so many years.
2. The music is fine and contributes to the game atmosphere.
3. The people responsible with level/area design did a great job.
Actually the music and the scenery are the only ones that create a positive atmosphere. The story and the characters subtracts from this instead of enriching it.
4. The ability and spell checks system, though unnecessary complicated, make sense after you've understood them (except for harvesting plants - that's just plain stupid)
5. The training-based talents.
6. Gwendala - a healing mage/archer is an excellent companion; she also looks good.
7. The combat is challenging at times but gets repetitive.

Conclusion: Buy/play Drakensang only if on sale and if you don't have great expectations. It is playable and almost bug free but lacks the level of detail, complexion and entertainment other genre related games (even older) have. I've had more fun modding it than playing it.

Beautifuly looking game full of running to places and smashing barrels. Seriously there are smashable barrels everywhere.
I got to the second town where i got the medal and house. Review is only based on that part.

Pros:
- Character creation, many characters to choose and game does not allow full min-maxing so no OP chars.
- Initial town where you can use social skills, later not so much

Cons:
- Shops sell mostly starting gear of other characters. My mage could not buy an upgrade to his clothes or staff in the first two towns, just got a healing spell and a weaker damaging one.
- Economy. Crafting an item is at least twice as costly as buying it in a shop, and that does not include the effort of harvesting other ingredients which often fails. I let my guy learn Alchemy because the game described it as a money-making skill. Bought ingredients for 4 coins, added poison stings from non-respawning enemies, crafted weapon poison, sold for 5 coins...
- No XP bonus for soloing the game, so party is preffered and needed. Yet you find just 2 companions and lose one after first town.
- No weapon dual wielding. Picking locks is too costly unless you start with a durable lockpick.

After playing Drakesang for 57 hours i can pretty much say that it reminded me of old-school RPG legends such a Baldur's Gate.
You play the game with a party of four characters and the Real Time with Pause system is the one used during battles. This system allows for more strategic battles and lets you organize your team and the skills to use.
The storyline is quite interesting but i felt that it could be presented in a better way. But what the main story may fail to deliver all the other things of the Drakesang universe you can find out make up for. The world has a history and it's really interesting to discover bits and pieces of it all over. Also there's really not any character progression regarding their personalities. At the end of your adventure you and your companions will be exactly the same persons as you were at the beginning.
The game is hard but that makes the battles really interesting and fun. You have to use diferrent skills, spells and items if you want to make it. What i really liked is the leveling system because it allows you to use your experience points in order to improve your skills whenever you want to. So if you feel like it you can wait until later to use them when you will be more certain about what type of characters you want to build.
Keeping in mind that the game was released in 2009 the graphics are pretty good. As for the soundtrack i can't say i really noticed it.
I strongly recommend Drakesang to all the old-school party based RPG lovers. I'm sure you will have a good time playing it.

Drakensang (originally released here in Germany in 2008) is a turn-based party RPG using "Germany's D&D" rules, "The Dark Eye", and follows in the footsteps of games like Black Isle/Bioware's Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights 2 - more or less.

Does it hold up? - yes and no. Some may call it boring, others call it slow-paced, either way, nothing about this game could be described as "high octane". If this rather intrigues you, then by all means, here's the full review:

Coming out a year before Dragon Age: Origins hit the shelves and probably resparked interest as well as expectations for the genre, this title is a neat little throwback that ALMOST succeeds in recreating the feel of the aforementioned beloved classic, but comes with a series of shortcomings, a lot of which can probably be traced back to a lack in production power for such an ambitious title.

Some of these shortcomings include: The ability to not fully customize the looks of your characters, not having fully voiced NPC dialogues, the gameplay being "functional" rather than "elegant", and being fairly limited in terms of story-choices and dialogue options (most of which only truly seem fitting if you're playing a default human 'nice guy' type of hero, and end up seeming odd or out-of-character for any elf, dwarf, or less-than-nice type of hero you might want to play).

If you have played Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights or any similar title, you will probably pick up the controls pretty quickly - point and click or WASD to move, hold mouse button to turn camera, click on character, assign command, hit spacebar to pause at any time. If you have played any of the D&D-based CRPGs and had no background and prior knowledge in AD&D, you will probably also relive the same frustration of "what do all these things mean" and "why is my character unable to hit stuff", leading to a rather frustrating experience until you finally figure out the simulated Pen-and-Paper-RPG rules this game's system is built on. Expect to look up a guide online to get up to speed, since the explainations the game itself provides may prove insufficient.

But, all the negatives aside, there is also a lot of good to be found: The locations are very well crafted and modelled very realistically after late medieval Germany, character models are colorful and overall very nice to look at, and the soundtrack goes perfectly with the scenery.

So, whom do I recommend this game to?
- You're looking for a "quaint" RPG where you do not wade in blood, a game that takes a rather light-hearted approach, not offering a lot of world-shattering choices, and overall a more relaxed experience
- You appreciate hommage and genre conventions and don't expect innovation
- You're not bothered by having to do a bit of research in order to fully get behind the game rules if you are not already fully familiar with them

Not recommended if:
- you're looking for a fast-paced game with action combat or even the tactical depth of the older infinity engine games; this game is hardly challenging if you know the rules well enough.
- you want a more epic or serious experience, as the plot and presentation try not much to impress with edginess or cinematics
- you're sick of "traditional fantasy rpgs". This is as traditional as it gets, up to the point where some would call it "clicheed", "dull" and "beaten to death"

PS: Even if you like a "slower" game, do yourself a favor and look up a little thing called "Ergo's Fixpack" up online, as it modifies the walking speed of your party to a more covenient pace - but be aware that is also contains some other small modifications to the game and thus does not allow for the "100% vanilla experience".

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.

Phew! I've just completed the game and may I say it's beautiful. Also, the game is VERY hard. You can't choose a difficulty level, so you'll have to play at the game's "default" and only difficulty level. Common enemies are usually only hard when they're in packs, but bosses... Let's say bosses are TOUGH. There are a few boss opponents that will require you to think of some unusual tactics, because there's simply no chance you'll handle them going head-on. And yeah, bring A LOT of healing potions to final battle. I've just finished it without a single potion, and it's been a REAL STRUGGLE. Two hours or so...
Game's core RPG mechanics is so much like Neverwinter Nights that sometimes you almost feel like you're playing NWN. I liked the mechanics. It's a pity you only get to buy good spells after the middle of the game, I'd like to see more spells and get them faster. By the way, you can increase character's skills (spend your experience points) at any time. This makes levelling up pretty much useless. And having to buy all the spells and active skills makes levelling up even more useless... I didn't like that. In Neverwinter Nights, you receive spells and skills as you gain your level. Here, in Drakensang, you receive experience points and increase your skills, and levelling up is just... Levelling up. That's pretty much it. "Player has reached level x", and that's all, nothing more happens.
I enjoyed the main storyline. There's plenty of side quests, and they are ok, and the main quest is great, and soooo long! Completing the game took me 45 damn hours... But it was worth it. Some of the plot twists were somewhat unexpected. However, the main storyline is solid, but it's not a masterpiece.
I liked the world, graphics are awesome (considering the game is 4-5 years old). Characters are great, I liked my companions and it was somewhat sad to finish the game, because I realized my adventure with these characters is over.
By the way, there's no fast travel system in this game, so you'll have to walk through the huge Drakensang maps on foot. Well, it didn't bother me.
And the dialogues. I've read a bunch of reviews before buying the game, and almost every single one of them said the game has awfully written dialogues. Well, I have to admit that sometimes you hear or read something funny, and dwarves speak with significant accent. However, those facts create unique atmosphere. Nothing feels uncomfortable, nothing feels out of place. So if you're afraid of possible flaws in dialogues, don't be, they're OK.
Overall, if you like old-school RPGs (pretty much like Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights or Dragon Age), I think you'll really enjoy this game. Buy the game on sale, and it will be totally worth every cent spent on it.

I really loved this game. BUT: I'm german, this game was written in german, and it implements the german Dark Eye RPG system. So while the basic idea is still that of a CRPG, the game can have a lot of peculiar aspects if you are coming from the AD&D culture. The game system never developed the kind of depth that can be found in the AD&D system, especially at high levels. And obviously, this game's storyline can't even be compared to the depths and complexity we've seen in the true gems like Mask of the Betrayer or Planescape Torment. Nonetheless, the writers were pretty well-versed within the Dark Eye universe, and the whole thing is a full and convincing implementation of the game's pen&paper base. But if you can't play it in german, most of the writing's qualities are probably lost in translation. The game really lives by athmosphere, by capturing the "feel" of the Dark Eye universe, which is largely conveyed by the language.

Other than that, the Dark Eye game system is also ridiculously complex when compared to AD&D. Where AD&D is optimized for playability and high-level scaling, the Dark Eye is optimized for realism and plausibility. So you end up with a combat system that is complex and difficult to master, yet feels very basic. However that's just what the Dark Eye world is like. Think of it as an "earlier", simpler world than AD&D. It's not as mythical, magic doesn't have as much power, people and their stories are simpler. I used to play some Dark Eye pen & paper, so I knew roughly what to expect, and that's why I loved it.

So, bottom line: If you know & love the Dark Eye, and if you're fluent in german, this is definitely an awesome game. If not, you might still get the hang of the world, its lore and the way it works, but maybe you don't.

old school RPG, interesting rule-set and quite different from the usual D&D for a change, beautifull graphics for an older game that reminds art-direction can make up for the lack of super-next-gen engines etc, slow paced, needs it's time to build it's storyline, recommended for baldurs gate fans and gamers who have ample time to spend.

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.
