    Another pretty lukewarm review of Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor appeared at CG Online. Final rating of the game is 2 out of 5 stars.
    Here is a snip from the text:

    Once your party is ready to roll, you'll find yourself fighting battle after battle for… well, pretty much the whole game. At its heart, it's is really more of a turn-based tactical combat game than a role-playing experience. The Dungeon Master feature, a blue text pop-up that tells you of things in the game world, and generally fills in for an actually DM, is nice, but isn't used nearly enough. Non-player characters and interactive encounters are extremely scarce, with all of the time in between spent dungeon hacking away. Mind you, that isn't necessarily a bad thing. There's something to be said for a good dungeon hack, but Pool of Radiance falls short on that point as well.
