Betrayal at Krondor is an absolute masterpiece. When I returned to BaK more than a decade later I could still remember many details - which is normally not the case. Great TB combat, great story, flexible char development, very good soundtrack (in the CD version!) - and a lot of everything. See the other thread a couple of months ago. The first gen 3D graphics (high end in ca. 1993!) are hard to stomach though. There's a certain chance you'll puke over your keyboard before you can appreciate how good BaK is.

Return to Krondor is pretty much the opposite. Superb graphics at its time (King's Quest 8 engine), should still be tolerable today. Everything a bit simplified. Still a complex game compared to all these action-RPGs, but back then it was quite a shock how the successor to a hardcore RPG could be so newbie friendly. It's nice fast food for a long weekend. Maybe 25 hours. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Its lasting value is limited though.
