Good old school D & D rpg. Muted color scheme, but good graphics. Simplistic charater choices. Nice plot.

This one I bought retail and was glad I did, since I beat it 6 times over in a month and was able to sell it on. It's worth 5 buck max.

Game is a mess. Had to edit an INI file to fix buggy textures. Had to edit an INI file to set my resolution. Interface kerning issues. Multiplayer, screen sharing aside, doesn't work. Ending is terrible. Got trapped by NPCs once and had to start a mission over.

I still liked it, though.

No game-breaking bugs. Music and ambience were solid. Tight combat. Skill tree was passable. I was actually pretty bummed when it was over. I would have sunk some more time in for sure.

Worth a play if you like the genre.

Dungeons and Dragons without character personalization.
Lots of barrel smashing, and lots of bugs. Inventory window and item descriptions were broken last time I played it.
I was so disappointed with this game that I threw it in the trash.

Only the cutscenes have sound....

Resets to low graphics upon restarting.....

Otherwise, a decent little hack-n-slash. Derp.

10/10. Would Waste $1.88 on again.


Update: Crashed and erased all my save data.

Upgrading this to an 11/10.

Like most people already wrote, i really can support theier views.
It's the most broken/buggy game i tried since a long time(tried it on release, and now gave it a chance again). Many graphic glitches, crashes, sometimes broken quests etc..
Also generally this game is very unbalanced/linear and get's boring very quick.
Now additionally, since Gamespy is dead, the game even hasn't any multiplayer anymore!

personally i like this game, because of the co-op, but since GamesSpy closed down in 2013 this is no longer possible. therefore i can not advise anyone to buy this game, unless someone makes a fix.

I really wanted to like this game but with it just comes off as really uninteresting and slow. I admit, I've spent very little time with this game but every time I try it, I can barely get past the tutorial. The graphics are very dated, and though skills and things look fun, trying to play this with a mouse and keyboard seems like they didn't really want it played that way.

This game is a rip off even during a summer sale. It's just terrible, bland, and has always suffered from major bugs.

Can't play with just a keyboard. Not sure if it's just me or not but the game only works with a xbox controller? Also I can't raise the resolution to 1920x1080 so not sure again but to have these problems right off the bat.. not to mention online multiplayer is discontinued. Even though I got this for cheap to me it's unplayable so unless I invested in googling for the answer. Therefore as protest I will not bother and I will accept that this game is crap. Thank you and good day.

No online multiplayer... Uses defunct GameSpy network. No key binding customization at all. Had to edit ini file to get proper resolution. Sadly, it coule be a great game, but I'll never know due to these issues.

If I were in an alternate universe and Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale were actually a meal I ordered out of Jack in the Box circa 1992, this would be my review:

It tastes like it has bugs in it with a noticable amount of bugs, oh and a glaze of buggery bugness with a side of this game is the ♥♥♥♥tiest game I have ever played.
