Special thanks to the AVGN for introducing me to the Nostalgic Critic and then the Nostalgic Critic for introducing me to Spoony!

    P.S. I can’t wait for review 42. Maybe thats what they were talking about.

  • GameMan329

    Many games I’ve played have the same design of a overly huge map which only 1/10 of it actually matters and the rest is just there to make the world seem interactive although you have no power over anything.

    I agree with Noa, with the mazes, they are not an important obstacle, they don’t require any skills, no logic and no common sense… It’s just there to piss you off because it’s waist deep in enemies and pointlessly long.

    A dragon weak against MAGIC FRIGGIN MISSILES!!! Even from my limited D&D knowledge of decent PC D&D games of Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale and Neverwinter Nights i know how weak the damn spell is… Dragons are immune to spells of that level. What the fuck game… what the fuck…

    • http://twitter.com/slavestate slavestate

      I know this comments a year old but I gotta disagree.. Never played a mage in the pen and paper version but in all the games you just mentioned Magic Missile is AWESOME when you get to higher levels.. These Dragonlance games sucked, and didnt account for the fact that the higher your level, the more missles you shoot each time.. A few MM’s loaded up in a Spell Sequencer in Baldurs Gate was instant annihilation..

    Theros Ironfeld was the forger of the batch of Dragon Lances used in the second war of the lance in defense of the high cleric's tower, then later to repel the flights of dragons to the eventual collapse and scatter of the Dragon army. This power being given to him by a silver dragon guarding Huma's tomb, disguising herself as a Kagonesti elf. Personally though, I think Flint should have been given the ability to forge them shortly before his death at Godshome. Just in case anyone actually cared who Theros was.

    Oh dear…Spoony had a DragonLance Meltdown.
    But I must say, the game took a step up, and I still have to say what I did in the last review. it should have taken a more turn-based approach, much like the Ultima series, or if your more like me, Vanguard Bandits (Look up the game, pretty good for a PSX game).

    I have to admit though, it is an improvement from the last one…but that doesn’t say to much.

    Dood, I just became hip to your work, and being a lifelong Dragonlance fan, it’s SO gratifying seeing someone play through these games (at the great cost of your sanity) and i truly, TRUKY look forward to seeing you play the next Dragonlance game. Have you ever considered the PC game Menzoberanzan? The forgotten realms dungeon romp with Drizzit from the mid nineties?

    REVIEW “POOL OF RADIANCE”!! hahahaha

  • Jessica U. Ingmann

    Seems like a pretty fun game, especially compared ta the first one!  More music, more environments, more COLORS…  More everything!  And of course, BETTER everything too.  :D

    i know that the actual title is Dragon Lance: Dragons of Flame, but i think a more appropriate title for this style might’ve been Final Fantasy: The Adventure of Link

    Good old review. I haven’t watched this one for a long time.

    Nice reference to the book at the end. You were so much more experimental back in those days when you did this one, Spoony.

    This is probably one of Spoony’s best reviews ever. It has biting wit with very little of the overdone righteous indignation of contemporary reviewers. The bit at the end really worked too. Very understated yet effective. I kind of hope he decides to do a retrospective of the Gold Box games or the DOS era AD&D games. They would be quick and easy reviews and would allow him to try and recapture some of the old magic.

    So, it’s Zelda 2?

      It wishes it was Zelda 2. This was the first game I played on my NES… I’m amazed that I went on to keep gaming after that. Thank god my NES came with Mario/Duck Hunt I guess.

    Ember was an old almost BLIND female dragon who believed the human children she guarded were her own ( in the book ) !!!
