A darkness is gathering in the sprawling port town of Baldur's Gate. Members of the city watch have been found dead, people are afraid to leave their homes, and there are rumors of a thieves' guild civil war brewing beneath the streets of the city. Into this deteriorating situation comes the player, the hero of the game, fresh to Baldur's Gate and fresh to the world of adventuring.

Dark Alliance is captivating, partly for its visual beauty, but also for the sheer diversity of everything. It's got tons of..."


"Dark Alliance for the GameCube obviously isn't intended for those who've already played it on the PS2, and as the saying goes, what you don't know can't hurt you. If by chance you've played the PS2 version already, then you already know that Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is a great game."
