About this product
- Product InformationPlayers guide three distinct heroes through the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons lands known as the Forgotten Realms, to correct a mistake and perhaps save the world in the process. By accidentally meddling in an age-old feud between two powerful, demonic hordes, the player's characters have allowed both abysmal armies into our plane of existence. Now the noble characters are honor-bound to make amends, and banish the demons from Faerun once more.
The player directly controls one of the three characters and can switch between them at nearly any time. These characters represent the fundamental AD&D archetypes: the burly fighter, who can take at least as much punishment as he dishes out; the agile rogue, who can pick locks and sneak about for surprise attacks; and the resourceful sorcerer, who specializes in a variety of ranged combat spells. Demon Stone is designed to call on the diverse abilities of each of these three characters, so using the right hero for the right job is an important part of play.
Characters gain experience and new abilities as they progress through the adventure, but Demon Stone players won't spend as much time number-crunching as they might in other AD&D games. Most of the statistical arithmetic that drives the combat system is applied behind the scenes. While Stormfront's collaboration with AD&D license holder Wizards of the Coast helps ensure that Demon Stone's rules system is accurate to the pen & paper standards, the focus of this game is squarely on the action.
Demon Stone is not the developer's first hack-and-slash console RPG. EA Games' well received The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, based on the Peter Jackson film, was also designed by the studio. Stormfront's previous work with the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons license yielded a series of home computer games in the early 1990s, as well as 2001's Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor.

Decent game - worth the money.
I got this game because I'm a big fan of the Forgotten Realms book series. The game play is simple enough - though you should read through the manual to make sure you get little tidbits like the call for help from the other characters, etc. I'm a long-time gamer & I tend to gravitate toward one kind of character, but there were a several in this game I was happy to play. Of course, my favorite being Drizzt in the books, I was excited to see that you get to play as him and fight alongside him at different points in the game. That has to be my favorite part. I liked the fact that the character play was true to the series, though one thing that drove me crazy was the knock-down affect....when a mob hits you, your character is knocked down for an exceedingly long period of time for a single hit. It makes gameplay, particularly with the wizard at points in which only he can get you through certain parts of the adventure using ranged attacks, quite frustrating. Other than that, it was great to see the pages of my favorite books come to life. I'd suggest this game for any fan of the series & any fan of fantasy adventure games.Read full review

sub-par action, save game features are lame, don't buy
What year was this game made, 1985? This is an action/rpg with save points at the end of very long levels. I will never give a good review to a game with save points so limited it is obviously designed to increase the length of the game artificially. I am a parent and do not always have 1/2 hour to 45 minutes to play and this game's save features are antiquated and the action is repetitive. Don't buy if you have a life.

worth your time to check out
This game goes by your everyday d&d gameplay
You have your sorcerer,assasin, and warrior type playable characters
You switch through them throughout your adventure
Although this game is relatively short it is worth your time to play
The graphics are great and the combat is easy to pick up and fun to use(especially the assasin wewtz salamnder slayin with sneak attacks!!)
The plot for this game was also written by one of my favorite fantasy novelists,R.A. Salvatore
If your are familiar with this author he brings in some of his more notable characters into missions in the game
If you aren't familiar with him and like fantasy/d&d books his books are a great place to start

Fun Game for CHEAP CHEAP
Hello - Well i basically bought this game because it's a rare original XBOX game and its also backwards compatible with the 360. Plus the game is easy to pick up and play and a fun hack and slash title. Even better was the fact that is was CHEAP! You know in this economy you HAVE TO watch every dollar and with eBay you can save a load if you know how to look!
