With Bard's Tale, Interplay transformed the wireframe-bare dungeons of Wizardry into a romp that was a graphic feast by Apple II standards. In first-person role-playing gaming, never before had the animated fire-breathing dragons been this vivid, or the taverns this rowdy. As you form a party of six to kick down doors in the town of Skara Brae (a reference to Ultima IV) and battle endless armies of magicians, monsters and scoundrels, the mascot of your party is the Bard. Keep his throat lubricated with frequent trips to taverns, and he'll sing rousing songs that inspire your adventurers to fight better. You'll need all the inspiration you can get in enormous mazes like the Temple of the Mad God and the Wine Cellar. ~ John Gorenfeld, All Game Guide
