Drakensang: The Dark Eye Reviews

After a long period of review inactivity for Drakensang: The Dark Eye, we have several new ones to report about.

RPGWatch starts us off with not one, but two separate reviews that both wind up at 4/5:
Drakensang is one of the most addictive and entertaining games I've played in years. Radon Labs' and dtp's game gets better and better for 60 hours, with only one exception I won't spoil here. The gameplay can be characterized as positively old fashioned - most of the elements have been seen before, but seldomly in such a pleasing implementation. Naturally this is not a game for the action crowd, but Drakensang is easy to recommend to serious RPG fans.

And then we have Virgin Media, where the game also scores a 4/5:
So, Drakensang's best not when it's being played, but when it's being tinkered with. It's an old-fashioned, sometimes archaic, other times deeply engrossing game that rewards and satisfies according to how much effort you're willing to put in. If the thousand words you've just read make you feel like sharpening your pencil and dusting off your dice, the solid rule set on which the combat and character progression is based will have you stroking your Gandalf-quality beard for months on end. For everyone else, however, it'll be too complex to get into.
