    The RPG Files: The Bard's Tale 4: The Director's Cut Review

    The Bard's Tale 4: The Director's Cut is an epic tale of corruption and evil, suffering and loss, of lessons learned too late and and the bitter consequences. It's also a story of hope and triumph and perseverance. It's a game that challenged me and a story that tugged at my heart.

    The Bard's Tale 4 had a rocky start last year. We checked out the new changes and got a feel for the performance changes in our Initial Impressions piece a couple of weeks ago. Additionally, combat, enemies, puzzles, and many other aspects of the game were reworked and polished. Those systems felt good in the initial chapters, but a lot of games start strong and finish weak. How well would these hold up over the entire game? I spent the past two weeks working my way through the story. Read on and we'll see if InXile put as much effort into the finish as they did the beginning. There are some minor spoilers ahead so be warned.

    [...]

    Conclusion

    The Bard's Tale 4: The Director's Cut is a dramatic improvement from the initial release over a year ago. More than that, it's an incredibly solid dungeon crawler and respectable entry in the franchise. It weaves puzzles and RPG character progression into a captivating story of love, loss, and triumph.
