ToEE slapped around at Game Revolution
Review - posted by Saint_Proverbius on Sat 18 October 2003, 15:25:32Tags: Temple of Elemental Evil
Game Revolution gives Temple of Elemental Evil a C- in their review. It's not exactly the best review on the internet, or even the best review of this game, or even the best review based on reading the official ToEE forum, but it's worth checking out just for a few laughs to be had. Here's a clip:
You'd think that the worst thing the developers of a game focused so heavily on the rules could do was to get those very rules wrong, but that's just what happened. The number of bugs in this game is just overwhelming. While most are small, annoying errors, they are simple things that should not have happened. Errors such as the Holy Sword +1 giving +3 to attack are ludicrous, not to mention the character and quest errors that more directly and detrimentally harm the game. I experienced enough minor annoyances playing the game that it ruined what might otherwise have been a load of fun.
Not exactly ludicrious if it was intended to be +1 damage, +3 to hit. I think I would have picked a bug that couldn't be disputed, like the dwarves in silver full plate crashing the game, but that's just me.
Thanks for the word, dipdipdip!
