A typical dungeon crawl with good vareity
Role game which is played form the perspective of first person and involves a lot of fun aspects. Starting with the plot of the game. The city of Waterdeep is under the threat of evil which is really powerful. The evil is actually threatening from the underground of the city which is filled with a variety of traps and monsters. The Lords of the city have called upon a group of people who will play as the heroes to save it from the evil. As soon as the heroes enter the underground dungeons in the game, the entrance is trapped by the evil and the rest is action, puzzles and adventure. Talking about the puzzles, they are quite logical and competitive and you have to be good with your decisions and reflexes to make the best out of them. All the spell casting and the combat in the game happen in real time and that is great fun factor for me. The variety of collectable items in the game are very good and the variety of moves that you can do are also great. The graphics are well suited for a dungeon crawl theme and the level designs are expansive and unique. Its sequel Eye of the Beholder 2
carries forward the fun and the gameplay and is also a very good recommendation.

EotB, great RPG
Before Westwood Studios made a debut with the Command & Conquer
series, they developed a great RPG game
known as Eye of the Beholder. It is another one of them first-person RPGs and it's rather a good one. The story is pretty simple. The lords of a city call upon a group of heroes
and send them to investigate the underground part of the city. However, an evil wizard
oversees this and casts a spell over the underground entrance, blocking the heroes inside. And from here, the journey of defeating evil begins. The gameplay is typical like in any other POV
RPG, the party creation is quite great, because for one slot you have a lot of races
to choose from. After choosing your race, you then have to choose it's class, morality (good, neutral or evil), rerolling the stats and finally giving your character a name. Repeat these steps three more times and you have your party ready.
