Gateway to the Savage Frontier

RPG 1991 Dos Dosbox SSI Fantasy First person

Dungeons and Dragons RPG bonanza with a cool story

A game set in the Forgotten Realms universe, Gateway to the Savage Frontier was a real winner at the time in terms of sales. That was due mainly to the fact that the game made use of the famed Golden Box RPG engine but also because of a story that, while typical of the Forgotten Realms universe, was enticing and fun. You will be in command of a six pack of adventurers, which of course come with their own abilities and can balance or unbalance your party. There are others on the road who can be used to join your cause but as you would expect, no more than 6 party members can join you at any time. You might laugh now at the misadventures that Zhentarim, the main antagonist puts your party through. The language used in dialogues may feel quite dated, but at the time there were no better options. Also, the game showcased great combat diversity due to many different party member configurations and weapons. Today it will take some very dedicated fans to put up with the technological limitations of the era, so, but if you can turn a blind eye this game is just as good as any other classics in the same style, The Eye of the Beholder or the first few Ultima games.
