After you kill the big rate (your first quest), save the game and chose happy-face two times in a row when talking to the inn-girl.

Then load your last save and choose mad-face both times.

In that moment, you'll understand everything ;)

Interesting game. It's very dated in the gameplay, lots of stunlocking (from you and enemies) which means fights later on can be completely one sided. To seemingly combat this, there are save points practically every 5 feet. I've had fights where I have sat with my back to a wall spamming parry+counter attack for a few minutes, staying invincible while doing damage. I've also had fights where I get charged in to a stunlock and killed before I can move.

The game pokes fun at the standard RPG quest requirements, where the main character often mocks how stupid the idea of climbing an impenetrable tower is, but every time there's a silly thing you are forced to do, you just joke about it then do it anyway.

All in all it's entertaining.

Controller recommended.

Top-down view RPG-lite, more of an action-adventure, I suppose - one of those titles that focuses more on the characters and story rather than loot, combat, or game mechanics in general.

That is not to say it abandons game mechanics completely - just simplifies them compared to more mainstream RPGs (especially "western", as opposed to JRPGs).

However, in the story department - it excels, with witty, humorous writing (it's essentially a parody/spoof of fantasy RPG games) and superb voice acting (at least in English version). Well worth playing just for that! And you'd be surprised how much is based on real world mythology and places.

There are essentially two main characters in the game - the eponymous Bard, whose misadventures you follow and whom you control directly, and The Narrator, who holds the Bard in great contempt, never failing to throw in some sarcastic commentary. There's fourth wall to be broken for sure, and generally the game does instill this idea that it is a tale, sort of reenactment you're witnessing, rather than directly participating in, at least that's how it worked for me - I would place myself, perhaps paradoxically, more next to The Narrator, who's spinning the tale, rather than the Bard, who's living (reliving?) it.

The story mostly revolves around Bard being a Chosen One, enduring trials and tribulations to save a princess, although his motives are clear: coin and cleavage, and definitely not saving the world. Which rapidly enters worse and worse state. Which may or may not be related to Bard's questing around. Nothing really to dwell on much, you're here pretty much to enjoy the ride.

I finished it on hard difficulty, but I wouldn't really bother if I were you, it only serves as annoyance really rather than a proper challenge, and everything can be easily cheesed anyway, with you shooting offscreen enemies with bows, minmaxing dexterity and rhythm (as a bard, you can summon variety of allies and rhythm makes them stronger), so playing it easy just lets you enjoy the ride more.

If you're unaware, it's well worth pointing out that none other than Brian Fargo is behind this game, one of industry titans (does Fallout ring a bell? something he was personally responsible for, not mentioning other great titles he was more or less involved with, and most recently, Kickstarter backed great promises of Torment and Wasteland 2). You really should cast away any doubts with regard to writing quality this game has to offer (mind though, again, it's not a "serious" title, and not big one either, giving off somewhat indie, passion project vibe rather than triple-A vibe Interplay could muster and inXile not so much, at least until Kickstarter and ever growing technological advances.. but I digress; look the guy up on Wikipedia if you don't know who he is).

Oh, it's bad luck to be you.
A chosen one of many isn't new
When you think you're full of luck
in the bullocks you'll get struck
Oh, it's bad luck to be you.

Jesus ♥♥♥♥ing Christ it's been so long since I played this game last. On my long-gone PS2 the week it came out in 2004. Got it from one of my best friends not long ago, haven't played anything else since. Playing it as a kid was amazing, but I can't begin to describe how much fun I'm having now that I'm older, understand sexual jokes and implications, and know what the heck the 4th wall is.

This game is a gemstone among PS2 games, and having it re-amped in HD on my PC is beyond amazing.

If you played this even once as a child, getting it now is like giving your childhood memories multiple ♥♥♥♥♥♥s, but even if you never did, it's a game definitely worth playing. More suggested and recommended than any other game I've played <3

Por fin encuentro este juego. Y ha sido de suerte (no es que lo anunciaran mucho).
Por 1'74€ NO PUEDE ESTAR MAL. No lo he jugado pero, un bardo que va por ahí, como dicen el vídeo y la descripción, buscando dinero y escotes NO PUEDE SER MALO.

El pero es que, según parece, sólo viene con subtítulos en inglés (en España salió con audio inglés y subtítulos ene spañol); habrá que buscarse la vida.
