The Bard's Tale is a game that revamps one of the most beloved adventure quest games from the 80s. With a whole new storyline and new missions to complete, the game promises a fresh challenge just waiting to be accepted by fans of this genre.
Becoming the Bard
One of the cool things about The Bard's Tale is that the game doesn’t take itself too seriously. The bard makes witty quips from time to time that highlight the often rather predictable nature of this type of game that is likely to bring a smile to the face of many gamers. The voice of the Bard is provided by actor Cary Elwes, who helps to provide plenty of laughs and bring a little extra depth to the game, while there is a good balance between searching for treasure as well as other goodies and battle scenes with the ability to choose character traits being a nice extra touch.
Rescue the Maiden, Save the Day
The Bard's Tale can now be enjoyed on the small screen, meaning that players will be able to take the quest with them wherever they go. The graphics and gaming style translate well onto the small screen and offer smooth game play. There is plenty of tongue in cheek humour to keep many players interested and help bring a new lease of life to a game that could otherwise have fallen rather flat.
