Best collection ever?
Now this is truly the definition of value. What you have here is perhaps the greatest collection of RPGs that contains enough adventuring action to keep you playing for literally years. This is a franchise which stands as one of the true legends of the industry and should take its place in the collection of any RPG fan alongside games from the Wizardry and Bard's Tale franchises. What you have here is each of the first eight games in the series, the two add-ons for part VII, plus the original Aklabeth which is the precursor the entire series. The games themselves are relatively similar, being classic old-school adventures, where you create a character (in one of the industry's most in-depth and rewarding systems) before embarking on some truly epic adventures in the land of Britannia and beyond. Along the way, you'll battle monsters, find loot, explore towns and all the other things you get up to in these sorts of things, with most of being done with huge amounts of style. If you're into old-school gaming, then you really need to pick this up to experience how things used to be. The earlier games obviously look a little dated and crude, but retain the essential gameplay which ensures they are still enjoyable today. Of the later entries, VII is perhaps the best, but it's actually pretty difficult to pick a favorite when there's so much gold on display here and whichever game you play, you're in for a great time. The stories are epic in every sense of the word, and the depth and gameplay mechanics combine to make this a truly classic series.
