Can anyone give me information on either of these games: Temple of Elemental Evil or Arcanum? I was thinking of switching things up a bit with a RPG. I have played Diablo, and Sacred before but for the most part I'm a pretty solid wargamer. Any information on these two would be great. They have gotten pretty solid reviews, but it's always better to get some first hand knowledge.
Temple of Elemntal Evil, vamilia game is not worth your time, however, their is a circle of 8 mod for the game, which makes it one of the best rpg games you will find.http://www.co8.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=31
You will need the 2 Atari patches then the latest mod, 6.2, the boards has a full thread on changes additions etc, loads more balancing atari never got round to doing, better AI for NPC and more locations etc. Highly recommended and is adding War of the Golden skull into its next edition, which is a mass combat end game mission for the party you create, alliances ypou forged, defend the village against an invading army.
Arcanum was an odd game, not really worth the effort to get into, just leaves you feeeling let down and a lot of pointless moving back and forth for no real purpose, sacred Underworld would be a better choice for you i think, as you mentioned sacred1, or spellforce2, another good game, you can downlaod them all for free at the piratebay.http://thepiratebay.org/
