About the Game

The prequel to Radon Labs' award-winning RPG, Drakensang: The River of Time introduces a brand new story within the Drakensang universe. The new story brings many innovations and new game elements for experienced as well for first time players, who will jump right into the fascinating medieval fantasy RPG scenario of Drakensang: The River Of Time.
Starting in Aventuria’s Middenrealm in the city of Ferdok, the story of the games takes players down the Great River to the city of Nadoret. Many mythical legends entwine around this river and will also flow into the main plot. The story will contain more twists than in Drakensang: With every place the player visits, his view on things will change. Depending on the choice of character, and behavior, new opportunities and series of quests will come up.
Living on a ship, players will experience a broad variety of RPG quests. There will be two new character archetypes to play, tons of new foes and monsters as well as equipment items.
Two new classes of heroes: the Geodes (rare Aventurian druids of the dwarfs) and the Gjalskerland inhabitants (tenacious and hard barbarians).
Advanced expert mode and adjustable levels of difficulty.

Drakensang: The River of time is an exceptionally sub-par RPG. The game gives the player very little freedom to explore, locking them into preset paths through the rigid storyline. The story itself, as much as I have seen of it, is bland and utterly routine. Worst of all are the combat mechanics which are cumbersomely slow, nearly to the point of being unresponsive. Combatants will stand facing each other for 10-20 seconds before making an attack only to miss with frustrating regularity. There are too many worthwhile RPG's out there to waste any time or money on this one.

It doesn't have widescreen support so I basically can't play it without a big black bar on one side, or with everything out of a good resoultion. >:(

Disclaimer: I have always wanted to get into the Dark Eye stuff and while I have the Arkania trilogy on my wishlist, this game serves as my entry into this sprawling fantasy universe.

That being said, I am really loving this game! I can see why they say that TDE is just as popular if not more so than D&D over in Germany (where it orginally hails from). The depth of the lore alone is quite amazing, but I also really respect the attention to detail in making the subject matter truly their own in such a bloated market (ie fantasy fiction).

Drakensang: Rivers of Time is the 2010 prequel to the original Drakensang (2008). For anyone familiar with that particular title - Ardo, Cano and Forgrimm play a central role in RoT as well. You play a nameless adventurer who earns in the anals of history alongside these three heroes.

What appeals to me most about this game is that, despite being a relatively modern game, it lacks the constant hand-holding of so many other current gen RPGs - which, to me, only ever translates to a plus! Game also features some great voice work and a pretty interesting plot. As with any good RPG you're given a large open world to explore at your leisure with plenty of side quests and other tasks to keep one busy when not pursuing the main quest line, as well.

A solid RPG experience. A deep, party oriented combat system and large list of craftable objects add depth to a well presented story and environment. Quests often have multiple paths to resolution giving you some choice in how you want to complete them. Well worth the price of admission, a real steal if you get it on one of the Steam sales.
