GameZone writes: "There have been a number of games that have followed the pen-and-paper ideals of the role-playing genre. Icewind Dale, the Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights franchises may spring quickly to mind, but Radon Labs has teamed up with publishers THQ and dtp to bring an old game to new life with Drakensang: The Dark Eye.
Drakensang was actually penned by long-time writers of the P&P games and it shows in the way the game moves along. You are cast in the role of a single adventurer, given a successive of missions. The idea is to put together a party (up to four), sally forth, upgrade and become a powerful force in the land."
