The Realms of Arkania Trilogy

The Realms of Arkania games (Blade of Destiny, Star Trail and Shadows of Riva) deliver a prime example of the classical European fantasy universe. Based on Germany's most popular pen & paper role playing game, it was also the first German computer RPG series to get widely recognized outside of its home country. To this day it holds a stable hardcore fanbase that loves the games for their comprehensive adaption of the pen & paper ruleset and the believable medieval fantasy setting.

I played this game years ago when it was rereleased on CD so this is really for new gamers who want to consider trying their hand at some classic RPG gaming. This is the core of what hardcore old school RPGs used to be and why they were glorious but also frustrating at times.

No single superhuman adventurer battling through hordes of enemies - no man could be that powerful. Instead, you have a band of adventurers with real needs like hunger, thirst, illnesses, and broken equipment. Magical items? They are extremely rare and not the absolute destructive force they are in current fantasy games. Skills? Ha! Every skill you can think of you can upgrade, even ones you'll never use.

And there in lies the beauty and the flaw. You, the grand guide, have to decide how you want to handle your adventurers. In current RPGs, such details have been reduced or even eliminated to improve the gaming experience. If the concept of handling the challenges of weather, terrain, illnesses, wear and tear of equipment, and your adventurers' needs immerses you into the game, then by all mean you should purchase this game and maybe even the whole trilogy. If such details sound tedious and aggravating, then pass by this game.

But I shall also provide a warning; it still contains the bugs that the originals contained. They are minor, but they can still be irritating. The biggest of which I always had to deal with is the step wise error when trying to complete a quest in the swamplands. You must turn it off to access the quest-required sunken chest. Lastely, when in doubt, do an internet search!

Sequence of legend. I don't see why you shouldn't give it a try.

Way too oldschool. Feels boring and lacks action.

This game suffers from the same problems as the first game (the window becomes unbearably small when alt-tabbing), but this one has a feature which makes the game tedious. Instead of letting you save whenever you like, you have to go into the manual and find a certain word they point out. Such as "Go to page 34, on row 7, the 5th word." And the manual linked from Steam has been scanned, which makes it so that the pages don't appear on the page you expect it to. And going to the manual forces the game into the tiny playwindow. It does leave the game unbearable to continue.

I guess this was an old method to prevent piracy, but it just punishes the customer. If the window wouldn't resize anytime you alt-tabbed, I might have given this game a chance. The manual is needed not only for saving, but to learn what all the icons in the game mean, as there is no tooltip.

This is an extremely dated game. If it had been the first RPG I had ever played, I would have never played another. Its like a glorified point and click. I actually love old school RPGs like Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, All Final Fantasies, Lufia, Dragon Quest just to name a few, but this just isn't fun imo. 2/10
