Everything that games like The Bard's Tale, Eye of the Beholder, Shining the Holy Ark and Revenge of Werdna did right, this game does horribly horribly wrong. There are far too many bugs and exploits in the game, ensuring that once you discover them, your characters will cakewalk through the game. The story is nearly non-existent, which is a death knell for any RPG. Characterization for your NPC's suffers the same fate, which is a huge red flag for ANY dungeon crawler as this is where you tend to get any personality development. The third and fatal strike comes with the alarmingly slow progression of the game.
