Monty Python-esque A great amount of fun. I played this on Xbox years ago and this port is extremely well done. It doesnt miss a beat. For new players, you are in for a very uniquely fun RPG hack n slah experience. Think Diablo but less hardcore and more charming. The game is well balanced, controls are so good you wont need a gamepad, and the difficulty is adjustable. I expect players to get around 20 hours of play time with this, and there is some (though not a ton) of replay value because of dialogue rewards.
Great game. Very funny and plays well on the hudl 2 (hi def). Only problem so far is that every time I go back into the game... It claims my save games are damaged. Only way round this is to force a stop on the game via android settings / apps and then go back into the game. A bit disconcerting! Looks like a fair few people are complaining about this. Any chance the devs can sort this in a patch??? If this was fixed, it would be a 5star game.
I played it on ps2 and this is even more bang for your buck now. The game now includes the msdos original trilogy and gives you options between a standard definition 1.5 gb download or a high definition (equal to the ps2 version) 3.5 gb download. The comedy is entertaining for rpg veterans and potty humored middle schoolers alike. There are different styles of skills to play through with and some different story twists depending on either snarky or pleasent dialog choices. Micro transactions are tucked away in the menus and non-intrusive/necessary.
Not bad, Not bad at all I never got to play the old school Bard's Tale but I like the game play in this one. It's very casual game play and since it is not online I can use a Pause Button when I have to unexpectedly drop the game for a sec lol this is refreshing as I usually only play online mmorpg's. That monster won't kill me while I look away from my screen briefly. But I like the swagger of this game. Definitely worth every penny of the 2 dollars I paid. I hope the story is a long one because I forsee myself enjoying this game for a good while to come.
Old School RPG, Has Major Issue. It seems to be a good port. Difficult, yes, but still enjoyable. The only problem is my save will not load. It says the chapter progress is damaged, and should be deleted. I am a good few hours through, and I do not want to start a new save. Does anybody know how I can fix this? It's been a few months since I have been able to play. If the developers can fix this, I'd gladly give it 5 stars.
Still an amazing RPG I have this for my PS2, and bought it for the trilogy of prequels, as I had never played them. I didn't care we much for them, but the Bard's Tale is as great as I remember. NOT FOR KIDS. Not really over the top, but a little suggestive. The back of the game box on PS2 proclaimed it "A quest for coins and cleavage", which gives you an idea how it pokes fun at traditional RPGs and a bit as to the humor. Still a brilliant game, with a snarky narrator and smart aleck hero who it's hard not to like. Well done!
