AVault: Bard's Tale is Conventional

The Adrenaline Vault has seen fit to <a href=http://www.avault.com/consoles/reviews/ps2/review_temp.asp?game=bardtale&page=1>review[/url] inXile's first Action/RPG title for the Playstation 2 platform (and upcoming PC release) with not a lot of good to say about it, citing the game as one suffering from conventional adventure and lacklustre gameplay.

It’s somewhat ironic that The Bard’s Tale, which satirizes conventional medieval epics and romances, suffers from such a conventional adventure. While attempting to streamline the action-RPG experience by eliminating superfluous components, the developers inadvertently removed many of the genre’s staples, partially dulling the gameplay. As a result, it’s neither complex nor particularly inventive, but even though it could have been much more, The Bard’s Tale is a still a humorous and engaging romp through the Orkney Islands of Scotland.​
They've given the game a verdict of 3 and a half stars. From the looks of things, it was probably a very bad idea for inXile to remove the 'superfluous' components like equipment management.
