Acerca deste jogo

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

This was really a pretty good game, I enjoyed it for what it is - a very playable turn-based single player rpg. I'd say it ranks up there with Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale, both of which were very decent games for their time, and I'd give it a couple of points higher than Dragon Age, if only because the difficulty is a bit higher. In fact it plays pretty much just like Dragon's Age, so if you liked that game you will probably like this one. The graphics are comparable (a couple years old, still looks nice on a new PC). Combat is fun, which is important for this kind of game. I consider it slightly more difficult than Dragon Age because some of fights can be quite difficult and actually require some planning.

It was just what I was looking for at the time... a break from online mmo's filled with snot-nosed brats and their temper tantrums. If you're sick of the annoyances of online games and looking to spend some time playing a little old school single player rpg, this is a good choice. Length was just about right, I'd say 40-50 hours playing in no big hurry.

By the way, I ran into not a single bug in the whole game. So another thumbs up for that!

Drakensang is very well made crpg with strong feeling and themes of more classical or old school rpg with some elements of more modern ones. The rules can be a bit hard and confusing due begin a port of tabletop rpg, but it well made transition. The only issue is sudden spikes in difficult, often you can simple waltz a dungeon and after find yourself struggling in the next quest or monster, some quest could be very tedious and very hard (in a bad way), but thanks the worst offender is optional quest.

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.

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".

One of my favoirte CRPGs. The system takes some trial and error and has a lot of stuff that might not make sense at first. Once you get it, it's real good.

Drakensang is a really good rpg, if you like the genre you will love this one and the second opus "drakensang, river of time" who is a prequel to the first one.

It was a game I approached many times and never got around to play all the way until few years later. I did not like the customization of characters at first as there were many unexplained features. I played as a mage and at the end I still had to make my mage a fighter teaching her all defensive skills. Game was long, sometimes tedious, but at the end it was quite ok. I would recommend it to RPG fan but there are far better games out there to play.

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.

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.

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.

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.
7.5 out of 10.

Drakensang is a good, solid, European, party-based RPG and is in my opinion an underrated gem. If you enjoy games like Baldur's Gate, Gothic/Risen and Dragon Age you should defintely give this a try!

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!

If you've played Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment etc. and are itching for more old-school D&D action, try this. It's inferior as a game to the 'classics', but a slightly better PC game (graphics, controls etc.) than Neverwinter &co.

Since leveling in modern RPGs has become mostly just a matter of dumping points into strength if you are melee, dexterity if you are ranged, and intelligence if you are a magic user, it's refreshing to see a modern RPG that actually requires you to do math and plan ahead if you don't want to mess up your game. In Drakensang, almost every action is determined by a formula that factors in 3 seperate attributes as well as skill points. If you invest in one attribute it will always affect several different things, which means that you are rarely boxed into one role. So, for example, if you want you can play as a rogue/mage hybrid who specializes in long bows and still be effective. There aren't many CRPGs left where you can do stuff like that. The writing isn't great, although it's kind of charming in the way that it avoids the "grim dark" fantasy tropes of modern RPGs and instead harkens back to lighter fair of the 1980s and 1980s. But spotty writing aside, the combat and character customization are the real reasons to play.
