Blackguards Review | GIZORAMA

Brandon Koch, GIZORAMA - "Most western styled RPGs are either based on or draw influence from Dungeons and Dragons. The popularity of the universe and ruleset have almost become synonymous with geekdom, so most gamers could be excused for not knowing of the German counterpart whose popularity is almost solely based in Germany called The Dark Eye. There have been several games over the years based on The Dark Eye such as The Realms of Arkania and Drakensang but these titles haven’t reached the popularity of its D&D counterparts Baldurs Gate and Neverwinter Nights.

The Daedalic Entertainment developed Blackguards attempts to take The Dark Eye to the realm of strategy/tactical RPGs with turn based grid combat. Daedalic is best known for its point and click adventure titles so this foray into a new genre is an interesting direction for the company that despite a few minor flaws could be called a success. Daedalic has practice executing well written stories and Blackguards continues that tradition with what is billed as a rogue’s adventure that follows a group of misfits and criminals on their path to save the world." (Blackguards, PC) 4/5
