Pocket Gamer - The Bard’s Tale Review

Pocket Gamer - No genre takes itself as seriously as the fantasy-RPG. Games like The Elder Scrolls, Baldur’s Gate, and Ultima offer up grand tales of dragons, goblins, and helpless maidens, all delivered in a completely straight-faced fashion which is entirely oblivious to the absurdity of the subject matter.

Taking this into account, it’s refreshing to play a title like The Bard’s Tale. A portable conversion of the 2004 PS2 and Xbox game (which in turn was an spiritual update of a dusty old computer RPG), this knockabout romp gleefully pokes fun at the fantasy gaming subset, taking every available opportunity to mercilessly stick the boot in - with predictably amusing results. (iPhone, The Bard's Tale) 8/10
