First off this isn't a bad game. far from it. Its just that I'm not really a fan of the genre. BGDA is a dungeon crawler rpg with gameplay much like the XMEN Legends series. The graphics are pretty good and there's a decent story. But the combat and character development was just too linear for me. I'm the kind of gamer that likes a LOT of options in my rpg's. But hey, if your a fan of the genre or you liked XMEN Legends then you should check this game out. I know this review is pretty short but I'm just not able to either bash this game for being bad or praise it for being great. Overall I give it a 6, out of 10.

First of all this game is a classic. It made me fall in love with hack n slash games n I love gettin the loot of course lol. n the one guy said theres no way to win without cheats...how bout you stop failing, I beat the game at lvl ten wasnt easy but I pulled it off. Give a great game a chance before you quit cause you dont have the patience for it

Too short

This game was flat out too short. It seemed like an attempt at being Diablo-like, but not allowing for the full character build ups. You couldn't see how the items gained affected your stats, and there's no way you could build your character up to a desired level, because the end came so unexpectedly! And when you get to the end, if your character isn't built up high enough in certain aspects, then you're screwed. There is NO WAY you will complete the game without cheats or something (no I didn't cheat, I started OVER). Good, but could have been better, MUCH better.
