Description
A poet and a rogue, with no friends to speak of, no one to mourn his passing shouuld it come to that. Even those beside him are no more boon companions than bondservants, summoned by sorcery and song, as cold and indifferent to him as the light of a wanderin' star. Is a Dragon terrorising the locals? He'll take care of it for the right price. Local princess held captive? The Bard is your man as long as she's hot. Forget the quest to save the world, our hero is interested in just two things...Coin and Cleavage. The Bard's Tale is a new generation action-RPG with wicked humour and stunning graphics.

The Bard's Tale
4.5 Star Review  GameZone - Nov 8, 2004

You know you're in store for quite a game when it has a note about its creepy content written on the disc. "For a really disturbing image...flip disc over." I'll let you think about that one for a minute. If you're still baffled, pick up any PS2 disc and do as the game says. Now that milk has been shot from your nose, it's time to learn about a tale of a wisecracking bard who loves to make wisecracks. His tale is not entirely unlike that of his brothers and sisters, the men and women who star in other RPGs. This story, however, doesn't follow the stereotypes that the genre has created – it makes fun of them.

The Bard's Tale
4.5 Star Review  about.com - Nov 24, 2004

Dungeons, summoned creatures, non-linear game play, sharp graphics... no it's not another Baldur's Gate, but rather a blast from the far, far past: The Bard's Tale. Age has treated the bard very kindly. Not only does his game look great, it plays great, and is an action packed, solid role playing game.

Uninteresting Tale
2 Star Review   By member jngx80 - Aug 7, 2007   

Strengths: some funny dialogue

Weakness: repetitive battles made worse because you have to level grind, graphics are too small

Lots of critics point out that the Bard's Tale is a humorous game and in my opinion it is fairly funny; although it's more in the snarky, sarcastic way. However the funny dialogue and situations also work against the game because at times you'll be left wondering why you should continue on with the game. To make things worse the graphics are really small, with an over head/top down view you're missing all the detail in the character designs. The brown and green color tone that's everywhere makes it dull to look at. The fights are repetitive although I like the fact that you have to time your blocks in order to actually dodge an attack. Another problem is the game is pretty tough and pretty much requires level grinding i.e. entering areas just so that you can fight enemies repeatedly in order to gain points. To make things worse the spells/monsters that you summon are pretty weak themselves and most of the time aren't all that useful.

The Bard's Tale
4 Star Review   By member mojave - Jan 3, 2006   

Strengths: Funny, in depth story, ability to tailor responses

Weakness: Difficult and frustrating combat at first

OK, put aside that angst-filled Final Fantasy game, or that 100 hour Dragonquest epic. Time for a different take on the RPG courtesy of Bard's Tale. You play as the sarcastic-tounged bard on a relatively short and light-hearted, but interesting, quest. The key feature of this game is the ability to be "snarky" or nice (which turns out to be a bit snarky as well, actually). The choices you make at different points can have minor or major effects, some of which you won't see for a while. This is an interesting dynamic and allows for some replayability as well. The combat system is OK, but can be frustrating at the beginning as enemies tend to gang up on and pummel you.

A humorous take on dungeon crawler genre!
4 Star Review   By member sabin23 - Nov 14, 2005   

Strengths: Good fighting engine from Baldur's Gate, good storyline, funny.

Weakness: No co-op or online play, repetetive.

While I'm not a huge fan of Baldur's Gate and Champions of Norrath, I did enjoy playing those games a lot. I really liked Bard's Tale unique take on those games, especially at how they poke fun of games of that ilk. While this game is not as good as others in the genre, the humor and unique take on the hack-and-slash games kept me playing to the end. The one big dissapointment is that there is no online or cooperative mode. I believe this would have added immensely to the replay value. Still a solid game that you can now get for cheap though.

Decent hack and slash
3 Star Review   By member dshadow1 - Sep 22, 2005   

Strengths: The snowblind engine used in the BG-DA and Champions of Norrath provides a fun hack-n-slash adventure.

Weakness: If you don't like hack-n-slash games, then don't think the humor in the game is going to make this one a winner.

I had high hopes for the recent re-incarnation of the Bard's Tale. However, the game turned out to be an average hack-n-slash adventure. One of the trademarks of the Bard's Tales is the humorous dialogue and funny misadventures. While the game provided a few chuckles here and there, it didn't strike me as paced well-enough and often enough to be memorable. So, we turn to the gameplay. You can't go wrong with the Snowblind game engine they used when it comes to hack-n-slash games. The one problem that I did not like about the game was that the colors in the game was too earth-toned (green and brown) such that I had trouble picking out items and entities. In summary, the game had decent hack-n-slash gameplay, average graphics, a sometimes funny storyline and so-so graphics.

Good, but not great
3 Star Review   By member Waywardson81 - Sep 5, 2005   

Strengths: Mostly funny, good voice acting

Weakness: Pretty bad gameplay, sometimes the humor is overdone

The Bard's Tale is a story, set in the Irish countryside (or something like it), about the Bard, a mischievous, self-serving, witty, and crude individual who sets about on an adventure to, well, basically, get money and women. Along the way, you'll encounter various individuals, and you'll have the option of being "snarky" or "nice" to them. Your actions have a minor effect on the way things play out. Oftentimes the humor is nicely done, but if you play for too long at a time you'll start to find it a bit repetitive. Play the game for the humor and the story. Don't play the game for the gameplay. Please. The combat system, a real-time hack n' slash, offers next to nothing. I recommend you play on "easy" - I played on "normal" and sometimes found myself getting my butt kicked and having to tediously level up, when the only thing I really wanted was to be able to get to the next town to see where the story was going.

Bard's Tale - Coin and Cleavage says it all
5 Star Review   By member Pookymeister - Aug 22, 2005   

Strengths: *Quirky take on the console RPG genre* - *Humorous(some of the time)* - *Great actor provides the voice overs*

Weakness: *Humor doesn't always hit its mark*

I'm a fan of Baldur's Gate : Dark Alliance, having played thru it a few times. Having said that, I like the hack and slash genre, and don't NEED online capability for it - provided that the game entertain me. Bard's Tale does just that. I bought it after seeing that Cary Elwes provides the voice for the main character. For those that do not know, Cary was in Princess Bride and Liar Liar(oooooo the CLAW). The main character in Bard's Tale is a drunken bloke in a constant quest for 'Coin and Cleavage". At many points in the game, you are presented with a choice on how you interact with the other characters. Your choices DO matter. For example, after the first quest, depending on how to respond, you can either sleep alone or with the barmaid. I haven't finished the game yet, but so far its kept me thoroughly entertained, and I expect to finish it with a sly grin on my face.

Bard's tale
3 Star Review   By member nlfrazee - Aug 5, 2005   

Strengths: Different unusual story

Weakness: difficulty of some tasks

I'm usually the type of person that doesn't like RPGs becuase of the mindless repetitive tasks that get no reward. But I like the Bard's tale because it is more creative in some of the tasks. Vivendi is an awesome developer and is known to make some great games.

For those who thought Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance took itself a bit too seriously. . .
4 Star Review   By member MaxBiaggi2 - Jul 18, 2005   

Strengths: Refreshingly humorous approach to the action/RPG genre, excellent voice acting, more complex storyline than genre fans are used to, decent graphics, budget asking price

Weakness: Some humor elicits more groans than laughs, summoning comrades for battle difficult when overwhelmed by enemies, short overall length

If you remember the Bard's Tale series of PC games from years past, you're definitely in the minority. The new console Bard's Tale has ditched most of what you know from the PC in favor of the hack-and-slash action/RPG genre popularized recently by the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Everquest series. As the Bard, you'll seek out various opportunities to gain coin and cleavage in a rather selfish fashion, and both the Bard and the in-game narrator will argue regularly about your changing situation and the people you meet. While the standard hack-and-slash gameplay has been seen many times before, the humorous take on the genre, its conventions, villains, etc. has not. While the Bard's humor isn't always funny, it certainly keeps things interesting and helps to pull you along through the adventure. Special thanks must go out to actor Cary Elwes for his work in bringing the Bard's world to life. If you enjoyed either the Baldur's Gate or Champions series on PS2, you'll find a lot to like in Bard's Tale, especially given the recent value pricing.

Bard's Tale One Big Joke Or A Great Action Adventure Game?
4 Star Review   By member FOnewearl - Jul 17, 2005   

Strengths: Humor makes the game abit more enjoyable

Weakness: Can be repetitive, No multiplay (no online mode also then)

The Bard's Tale is an action adventure game much like Diablo II, Baldur's Gate or Champions of Norrath based on the old PC games by the same name. The first thing one will notice when playing Bard's Tale is that it has alot of humor as you play though it which makes it abit more fun then the game would be without any jokes which helps make the story enjoyable and easier to get into. One thing that is not in Bard's Tale is multiplayer of any form so anyone looking for an action adventure game to play with friends or online would be better off going with either of the Champions of Norrath games for an action adventure game on Playstation 2. Although the spell system & combat isn't as refined & balanced as Champions of Norrath I would highly recommend Bard's Tale to anyone that has enjoyed games like Champions of Norrath or Baldur's Gate single player as it will offer a fix for action adventure gamers that is done well with a nice twist added in with the humor toughout the game poking fun at many stereotype things that typically happen in adventure/RPG games of the midevil theme.

A very funny Action RPG
4 Star Review   By member fever - Jul 17, 2005   

Strengths: The in-game humor, story and voice acting are great. The magic system is unique.

Weakness: Unforgving enemies, repetative combat

I have been having a great time playing the game. Most of the enjoyment comes from the games excellent sense of humor and unique storyline. The dog companion in the game is also fairly unique however it is not as helpful as I would like. I have found the combat to be very unforgiving and the enemies tend to all attack at once and the Bard does not respond very quickly as the controls seem sluggish. Using music for magic really rounds out the charaxcter, but in combat it can be frustrating to use. The graphics are good overall as both the environments and characters are well detailed. If the combat was better then this would be one of the best action RPG's around, it is fortunate the story and dialog is so good as it provides relif from frustrtuong fighting.

The Bards Tale!!
4 Star Review   By member mirado182 - Jul 16, 2005   

Strengths: *Great attempt to make fun of the cliches in RPG *Funny music

Weakness: *Controls are okay *Kinda repetitive

While this isn't exactly the Game of the Year, it still manages to hold my attention thoughout the game. You'll also enjoy this if you like action/RPG games. I liked how it made fun of common RPG cliches (chosen one and being able to carry so much stuff). Still, this game is aimed at a specific audience but if you are that person that they are aiming, I beleive you'll at least get a good laugh from this game. I'd give it a 8 out of 10 and my recommendation.

5 Star Review   By member Warner1281 - Jul 5, 2005   

Strengths: Storyline, gameplay, controls

Weakness: view of character during gameplay

I must say this is one of the funniest games I've ever played. The main character is a drunk bastard and he's hilarious. The storyline is just laugh out loud funny the entire time. At the same time it's got a lot of the same playing style as most console RPG's. So if you enjoy RPG's, even in the slightest bit, I would highly recommend this game. However, be forewarned that the Bard is foul-mouthed, so if you have little one's I'd be careful about playing it around them.
