    This review comes from The Entertainment Depot, where Ruins of Myth Drannor earns a "Fair" rating of 6 out of 10. Although the individual ratings are a bit mixed-up, (the sections for Sound and Control are swapped) it's still worth a quick read.

    There’s no doubt that Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor certainly has its lion’s share of problems and bugs that will likely turn most players off before the game even gets its chance to shine. Particularly glaring issues such as slowdown, a hideously sluggish interface and a drag-knuckled pace will irritate gamers who have come to appreciate the finer points of Baldur’s Gate-style modern RPGs, while more casual veterans will find their own patience tried with bugs like the famous "wreck your Windows" uninstallation or "corrupted save game" bugs. Although patches and utilities that repair some of these issues have since been published, not everyone might be willing to give this weather-beaten underdog a try.

    However, with a little perseverance and a willingness to see through its admittedly rough edges, patient fans of this old-fashioned, pen-and-paper type of dungeon crawl could find a gem of a game hidden in Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor’s depths. In fact, with its incredibly expansive dungeons, countless enemies and any number of quests or hidden treasures to discover, there is a great deal of playing time – and more importantly, fun – to anyone willing to give it some leeway.
