It is imho superior in nearly every aspect to the first Drakensang game.

Drakensang Online, by the way, only has brand name + assets, but no TDE license.
It is owned by Bigpoint, an online games firm/company.
They bought the developers (Radon Labs") of both Drakensang games when they went into insolvency.
Bernd Beyreuther, the chief of Radon Labs, once said to me that too few people bought Drakensang 2. And considering how bad the international distribution of it was, I'm sure he was right. Radon Labs NEEDED good international saled for the firm's survival - but because the international distribution was not really working, they never got what they needed (in terms of money).
So they went into insolvency, Bigpoint bought them, the rest is history.
Good Info - Many of those RPGs had distribution problems, remember it was the same with realms of Arkania.

I also remember that my copy of Wizardry 8 (one of the best RPGs of all time IMOP) came with a white paper manual because (I think) Sirtech, couldn't find a publisher and could not even afford the art work…
