I have to disagree with you RPer from what little of it I played (so perhaps I shouldn't be replying
). I think (the new) Bard's Tale was everything it advertised itself to be. And this was very unfortunate.
Which is why it didn't play it that long. So I agree with your sentiment.
Very disappointing. Like a lot of us I was really, really hoping it would have been a proper sequel to this once venerable franchise. (It was so popular that when BT3 was released, Richard Garriott had the nerve criticise it, when we all knew he was just disparaging the competition. It was basically Ultima in 3d which even Origin couldn't do yet.)
(the new) Bard's Tale sort of reminds me of Ultima 8 or that Zork game that wasn't (meant to be) funny.
