Xbox 360 Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale

I know there's plenty of us D&D enthusiasts out there among the TG ranks. I have a long love relationship with PC D&D games, dating back to Pool of Radiance. The games I have vivid recollection of and know I can claim as notches on my belt for completed games are:

Pool of Radiance

Curse of the Azure Bonds

Eye of the Beholder

Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon

Neverwinter Nights

I also played through a good portion of Temple of Elemental Evil, but am certain I never finished it. Frankly, it was a slow-paced game with just too much reading. You can see the gaps of my ability to commit to D&D games throughout my life - early PC games were in my early teens, before girls started commanding the greater part of my attention. Neverwinter Nights was early high school - finding a balance of schoolwork, girls, and still pursuing video game/hobby passions.

And of course the arcade title Shadow Over Mystara got some of my attention when I was actively frequenting local arcades, circa 1991 - 1999. I have more recently completed DDSOM, on MAME...and when I say more recently, that is..within the last 10 years, which is also kind crazy to say. Definitely played some Tower of Doom over the years, but am confident I've never seen the end of it.

And this all brings me to the current topic - Xbox 360 D&D Daggerdale. Five or six years ago, D&D Daggerdale came up as a free Xbox Gold download. 1.9GB later, it was downloaded and starting to get a play through. It's an Atari release (as was Temple of Elemental Evil) and an official Wizard of the Coast product.

It's not an earth-shattering release in the long lineup of D&D video game releases, but is a pretty good play, and frankly a minimal time commitment. It's a dungeon crawler hack and slash, but with enough regular inventory diving required to set a more casual pace.

Has anyone else visited this title, and what are your thoughts on it?

    I took a look at "Daggerdale" via a YouTube walkthru...looked pretty good, reminiscent of elements from both "Diablo III" and "Torchlight".

    havent played these but i have been enjoying the intellivisions' d&d games. Treasure of Tarmin is nothing but an end game grind, which keeps people happy. most people in modern games skip through the story and spend all their time in the end game grind anyway, well the intellivision treasure of tarmin just starts you at the end game grind
