essentially a hackingWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20slash of sorts very different to theoriginal folders gate which was moretraditional sort of RPG in the sensethat like you had six characters butlike Planescape torment or all of theclassic RPGs at a time this one was abit different it was pretty good in myWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40opinion so a few you seem to enjoy thisso here we aremelee combat nightI think we can handle a couple rats soinstead of okay thank you so instead ofclicking and sort of casting spells andWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00considering tactical positions and allthatyou basically

  1. I remember this, I never finished it, but my dad did. He bought the second hoping to be able to transfer his old character over but was disappointed…

  2. I love this game both Dark Alliance 1 and 2 however I was a little disappointed when I finally bought Dark Alliance 2 not disappointed in the game but disappointed that DA2 didn't pick up where DA1 left off in DA1 Adrianna the Elven Sorceress and Kromelch the Dwarven fighter had been captured and I don't remember anything being said about Vahn rescuing them DA2 was a whole separate story.
