You are looking at XBOX game The Bard's Tale.

Loosely based on the classic Bard's Tale series that began as an Apple II RPG in 1985, this new instalment brings a fresh dose of comedy to the genre with a 3D isometric view that runs on the Champions of Norrath engine. Is a dragon terrorizing the locals? The Bard will take care of it... for the right price. Local princess held captive? The Bard is your man... as long as she's hot. Use the Snarky/Nice conversation to pick the tone - be an ass or show some class. Your attitude will affect the events that unfold and create a personalized experience for each player. Develop your combat party by summoning a group of eccentrics and misfits to do your bidding - sixteen summoned creatures in all.

''Why do you people always put the lever in front of the gate you're trying to protect instead of behind the gate where people can't get at it?' This is one of the Bard's many observations as he reacts much like a gamer might during an RPG. Some of the stupid things enemies do, the places heroes must visit, and the idea of a 'Chosen One' are all ripped on with glee. There is so much humour and such a great sense of wit, I highly recommend The Bard's Tale to anyone who has even the slightest sense of humour.' - Player's review


  • A truly non-linear game, the player chooses the Bard's responses towards other characters he encounters with either 'snarky' or 'nice' dialogue. Each choice changes the course of events in the game.
  • A deep RPG experience with non-linear game play resulting in many different outcomes and true replay value.
  • Brilliant graphics and bustling environments, alive with interactive townsfolk and original music
  • A new generation third-person, action/role-playing game featuring wicked humor and clever personality.
