Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos
Westwood's Lands of Lore: Throne of Chaos is sequel in spirit to
acclaimed Eye of The Beholder 2, but surpasses its AD&D predecessor in
every way. The game broke new grounds with astounding graphics, great
soundtrack, intuitive user interface, great spell effects and plot
development, and last but not least, excellent automap. Lands of Lore
begin with an intriguing, albeit cliche, premise that is no less dynamic
than those in Eye of The Beholder series. While consulting with Geron his
counselor, King Richard of Gladstone received an alarming news: after
countless futile attempts, Scotia the mad sorceress finally obtained the
nether mask, a magical artifact that grants the wearer the power to
change into any form. He immediately entrusts to his champion (you, of
course) and the task of destroying Scotia once and for all. Westwood
eschews traditional RPG character creation in favor of simple statistics,
but for the most part, it works. You can choose from 4 characters
depending on your preference in weapons/magic balance. Rarely has an RPG
-- or any game for that matter-- been able to entice the player into its
world as quickly as Lands of Lore. I remember playing the game for the
first time, exploring Gladstone Keep and the forest beyond, collecting
all sorts of neat items, battling well-drawn monsters, casting a few
spells with amazing effects, seeing my character gain a few levels,
annotating the best automap I've ever seen, watching amazing plot
development through in-game cutscenes... the next thing I knew, the sun
had come up. The game had kept me playing for 6 hours straight-- I can't
think of a better recommendation than this :) Lands of Lore remains to
this day one of the most accessible RPGs that stand the test of time,
with the power to convert even the most ardent RPG dissenters into
hapless addicts. It may not be original or even revolutionary, but it is
definitely a flawless execution. The CD-ROM version features the voice of
Patrick Stewart as King Richard, along with other multimedia enhancements
that make the game even more atmospheric than the floppy version. As a
game design, it is a role model; as a game, it is simply a must-have.
