    A preview of Pool of Radiance II: Ruins of Myth Drannor has been posted at PC Gameplay. It covers most aspects of the game from character creation to maps to combat, as well as offering up some decent screenshots. Here's the verdict:

    Fans of the genre will not be let down by Pool Of Radiance. There has been some whining on the game's official forums that too many of the new 3rd Edition rules have been compromised for the sake of simplicity, but to them we say "Pah!" Radiance is a solid game that more than capably conveys the spirit of D&D on the PC. Whether or not you prefer it to Baldur's Gate will depend on your point of view: some may find the stop/start turn-based nature of the combat slightly jarring, but others will find it a joy. The graphics are excellent, the story is typically convoluted and entertaining, and there are at least 100 hours of gaming to be had.
