Drakensang - Article Flood 5
 
The Drakensang article stream is drying up. This will probably be the last collection for a couple of weeks. Everything in German.
  • Gamona plus video review 85%; "[…] authentic DSA in pure form."
  • GameCaptain 85%; "[…] the fantasy highlight of the year"
  • Olnigg His 154th RPG satire is funny as always, although he isn´t as critical as usually. "As an adventurehack'n'slay it deserves the rating 'masterly' and a clear purchase recommendation, but as a classic RPG it´s a disappointing partial-failure."Apart from that he mentions the same pros and cons as all the other reviews.
  • Mega-Gaming.de 84%; no link -> Warning: HTML-virus according to Avira AntiVir!
  • GameSports Broadcasting B+; a very detailed review; "challenging and demanding fights in the later game"
  • GameRadio "rating: good" (two reviewers)
  • Game7 a very positive "recommended purchase", their 2nd highest score
  • Der Westen review part3; no score; negative; frustrating combat balancing
More information.

Solid reviews for this game. I can't wait to play it.

Der Westen:

Tödlich für den Spielspaß

Es kann nicht sein, dass man trotz der besten verfügbaren Ausrüstung und guter Kampfwerte kein großes Anfangsquest schafft. Wir saßen an einer Aufgabe in Ferdok über drei Tage fest, weil unsere Charaktere an simplen Wolfsratten scheiterten. Mit vier Gruppenmitgliedern, von denen drei gute Nahkämpfer sind, hat man „tief unter Ferdok“ keine Chance auf Erfolg.
The rat-quest is no beginners' quest! - even the quest-giver recommends to come back later when your party is better. Level 8 is a good level to go for the rats.

But it appears as such ! Because it is relatively early in the game !

…And you are told that it is difficult and you may want to come back later. And it is just a sidequest. If you don't listen and are immune to learning from experience you deserve to be stuck for at least three days.

Haha, yeah… I admitted defeat myself at level 4 and decided to do something else first. It's very much like that Ork in Gothic that was just out of town and waaay to strong when you first met him. Players back then also couldn't grasp the idea of running away to live and fight another day.
