    Want to read yet another review of Pool of Radiance? This one comes from Blue Monday, where Ruins of Myth Drannor scores a miserable 4.9 of 10, with emphasis on "the worst interface ever." Here's a summary:

    In some way, RoMD reminds me of the release of Ultima: Ascension, when fans banded against EA for publishing an unfinished game. But the case of Pool of Radiance is even worse, because I can’t begin to imagine what could be done to “finish” it. The bigger problem is not in the bugs or the missing features, but in a complete lack of vision. I can’t help but imagine that some time ago there was a meeting, where the Stormfront team and Ubi Soft executives discussed if they should gather everything they had and shove it into a retail box, or just put it “on hold”.
    If that meeting actually took place, you already know how it ended. Pool of Radiance’s flaws are big and many, but if you’re able to look beneath them, you’ll find that it’s just a boring and uninspired game.
