Featuring 35+ hours of gameplay, 350 speaking parts, and over 100 pieces of incredible music.

"Bard's Tale 4 was good at launch" is a hill I will happily die on, but not everyone had a smooth-sailing experience with it out of the gate, and even I have to admit that there were some rough spots.

Although The Bard's Tale 4's puzzle-y RPG action was well-received at launch, the experience was more than a little rough around the edges. Indeed, Eurogamer's Robert Purchese, a fan of the game, noted that it was hard to ignore its "gene...
