El juego está disponible con subtítulos en castellano a pesar de que no lo diga Steam. Lo único que está sin subtitular son las canciones.

Por lo demás, pues qué decir: es divertido, tiene un humor gamberro y socarrón; la cámara fastidia un poco; la vista es casi cenital y resulta algo facilón... Pero bueno, unas risas sí que se echan.

I enjoyed the game from the very beginning till the very end and probably will replay it at least once sometime later to buy all the extras (funny songs and arts there) and find two last tunes. The game is short enough (about 20 to 25 hours of gameplay tops, and you level cap could be achieved easily) but very funny and costs every cent of its price.

The strongest part of the game are its witty dialogues and excellent voicing, however the plot is not so bad too and jokes are good (and yes, I’m almost forty). Combat is simple, especially with a bow and easy mode (which affects only start attributes and number of save points, so don’t bother with harder difficulty). This game is really a game, not some kind of computer sport where you need huge guides on spell usage and skills allocation. Still, the summons are fun and efficient, the weapons are sparse but don't become obsolete too fast. You are free to experiment. Save points number and location are well chosen. Songs and music are awesome! I sing them under my nose now and then.

In short I like the game, the way it is designed, its gameplay and humour. If you are not combat-obsessed power gamer try it. If you are, still try it to for a change.

There are very few games I play through more than once. There are even fewer RPGs. This is one of them. With the amazing vocal talents, excellent music, laugh-out-loud funny comments, asides, and conversations, this game will forever give me a smile.

As with the majority of RPGs, you're a low-level schmo who gets 'invited' to partake on an ever-expanding adventure where you ascend the level tree, getting bigger weapons, fighting bigger monsters, and eventually get the girl, and live happily ever after. Except in this case, the game shows that things aren't quite peachy, and seem to go downhill, rather than up.

The game shows you the wonderful side-effects of your murderous misanthropy, as you gaily stab, shoot and zap your way across a beautiful scottish and norse-themes fantasy land... Whether you follow the plot, or try to deviate from it, the wonderful writing keeps you amused, and on your toes, guiding you in the right direction at all times.

There's a LOT in this game, although it sometimes doesn't feel that way. The level-grinders will find a lot to keep them amused, the magic-lovers, the archers, the swordsmen, will all find that the balance is quite nice (although I think the bow may be slightly under-powered compared to the sword, but only by a fraction, and the ability to sit out of the action and pepper opponents with arrows is fun enough.). I've played this through as both sword and bow, and both are very playable.

I can heartily recommend this to anyone who likes a good old-fashioned RPG, but wants something with its tongue firmly wedged in its cheek. Wonderful on both PC and android, it's a great game for whiling away the hours.

The voice acting of the wonderful Tony Jay will forever be missed. His voice lives on in all the games and TV media he did. You should play this, just to hear his wry humour and phenomenal voice.

Thanks InXile! You've made an old-fashioned RPGer very happy!

I doubt I'm even 1% done. This game is actually pretty good. It's graphics aren't bad for the time they were made, and I kind of like the feel they give. They aren't really retro, but still bring nostalgia. The voice acting is great, and it has a great storyline, with different responses you can choose, a kind response or a rude response and both change the outcome of the story, whether it be a small change or a large one. It's got a thorough skill system, and might I say, one of the most descriptive smithy shops in a game. The works are very described, but not so much in a way that they take forever to understand. They are clear, to the point, and yet aren't short. There are a couple glitches, and one that has halted my progress 4 hours in, which I am very upset about, but still, I love this game. And hey, every good game has glitches, It's possible to beat Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time in under half an hour because of them. Who doesn't love glitches?

A classic RPG that should be in EVERY RPG fan library. It has a great story, some nice puzzle elements, and it's wrapped together by humorous banter between the onscreen character and offscreen narrator.

I purchased this game primarily for the three original Bard's Tale games - which were favorites back in the days of my old C64. However, I've been pleasantly surprised by newer version, even though it has little in common with the original series. The Bard's Tale has a sharp wit and isn't afraid to lampoon traditional sword & sorcery RPG games in a most amusing fashion. With Carey Elwes providing the voice of the Bard, the producers couldn't help but tip their hats to "The Princess Bride" at various points in the story. While the game is hardly cutting edge in terms of game play or graphics, it is a breath of fresh air compared to much of the turgid and predictable fare found in fantasy gaming. An overlooked gem.

What the game doesn't have in graphics and gameplay, it more then makes up with incredible humor and sharp sarcasm. Well worth purchasing and playing through once or twice for all the awesome dialogs. Greatly enjoyed it!

This game is an amazing example of good solid gameplay, perfect writing and a well executed concept. When friends ask for recommendations for fun or funny games, this is always at the top of the list. The interations between the Bard and the narrator are priceless. It may not look like I have a lot of time played, but i owned it on another platform and only repurchased it on steam to play it again.

why are you still reading this, you should be purchasing Bard's Tale now! Go!

Been a while since playing this on the Xbox but from what I've seen on the pc version (which does have controller support), the art still looks decent but the music & voice acting along with the humorous writing are still incredibly good. If you want a good game with some British humor to it plus getting the original Bards Tale games included, this is quite worth it.

I have never bothered to review this game because, meh. However, since they added the original trilogy, this just got 1000 times better.

I still have my original 5.25 floppies and graph paper maps for the first game. I still have my character disk for the party I took through the whole trilogy. I think the fact that I still have those things is a testament to how much I loved the games. (or I'm just a hoarding nerd)

I highly recommend you play the old games in the old way. Get yourself some graph paper and make your own maps. Don't use the maps provided (cheater!). Print out the documentation and the map for Skara Brae and time warp back to the mid 80's.

Fun game. The humorous banter is amusing at first but get old after a while and travelling around gets monotonous but otherwise I enjoyed it.

I don't regret it

Funny, sarcastic, and entertaining. Like good ol'-fashioned role-playing games? May as well give it a whirl

Bueno, no me gusto tanto, el simple hecho de que tienes que mover la camara para tener una mejor vista y no perderte de los objetos o tesoros que te dejas solo por tener un angulo mejor.
La narración esta un poco mal hecha y eso hace que me aburra (o simplemente pedir que el narrador se calle).
El sistema de combate es simple pero a la vez un poco confuso.
Pero eso si, tiene algo de humor que a veces puede hacer hechar una que otra carcajada.

Muy soso. La idea es original pero la historia es sosa, los gráficos apestan y pronto te aburrirás de tener que tocar el laud para hacer cualquier cosa.
