In another Forgotten Realms game, Menzoberranzan, a hostile city in the realm called Underdark, sets the stage for this role-playing experience. As you begin Menzoberranzan, your companions are kidnapped and forced underground by the Drow Elves, a merciless bunch of evil worshipers who fight and use magic with equal prowess. But, as you are drawn into the game, what appears to be a simple search and rescue mission to save your friends turns into a much larger and demanding journey. The drow elves, minions of Lolth, the Spider Queen, were looking for their darkworld traitor Drizzt Do'Urden and you and your village just happened to get in the way. There is much more at stake than just rescuing your friends.
Menzoberranzan comes with all the standard fare of role-playing games. Character generation is based on the fundamental four basic factors: race (elf, dwarf, gnome, human, half-elf or halfling), class (cleric, mage, ranger, fighter, paladin, thief), alignment (good or neutral as lawful or chaotic, neutral good or true neutral), and six attributes. A wide range of weapons, magic spells, surprises, nasty creatures and evil opponents await the adventurer in this subterranean world.
With a full range of options to customize the game on your computer, Menzoberranzan provides intensive gameplay for all fans of the genre who like to mix magic and fighting in a blend of adventuring, exploration and mayhem. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
