I have two favorite games of all time. One's a space game, and one's a fantasy game. The space one is Privateer, the fantasy one is Lands of Lore. Both these games first had a floppy disk version and were later rereleasd on cd-rom.
This thread is to reminisce specifically about Lands of Lore and I was hoping someone else here has played this amazing game.
I love the graphics, the story, the music, even the way you move about and fight. For an early cd-rom game, the voice talent is actually very well done, besides having Patrick Stewart in it, the unheard of names do a great job as well. Especially if your character was Ak'shell. He was my favorite.
Some of the best games ever I can judge on their replayability factor. And this game I'll never get sick of playing. And it's sad that the franchise kind of fizzled out after Lands of Lore 3. An okay game, yet riddled with bugs. Lands of Lore 2 I actually quite enjoyed. But they all pale in comparison to the first one, still.
The world it was set in was interesting too. I liked the races and the timeline. I don't know, I just have lots of good memories playing that game. And I have saved an older computer, a 486 I think, with DOS just so I can play that and some of my older games without any problems.
i've played all 3 Lands of Lore parts. Really enjoyed all of them. The 2nd is really hard without telling u what to do or having any sort of quest log, but really challenging. 3rd part is bit easier but i do like the way the story ends.
Except the first one that was exceptional for its time the other 2 werent that good against the competition they had. As a fan i really loved playing them, tho. The story and the atmosphere are just too good for me to leave out
Yeah, the second one is kind of hard like that. However, I kind of like the feeling of isolation you get, cause you don't really have anyone helping you, except your monster and lizard form. But especially in the Dracoid Ruins, I love how abandoned and lonely it is down there. Then that whole cinematic where Belial's avatar comes alive and destroys the worm, that was really cool.
I always think of how cool it'd be if they made another Lands of Lore game in the style of Oblivion, with lots of open-endedness. But there isn't much of a fan website out there like Diablo 3 or WCnews to show support for it. It's too bad.
would be pretty cool but i dont think its gonna happen tbh. Only as a mod-fan project, since Westwood was bought off from EA and the studio that made these games no longer exists (i think).
About the Lands of Lore 2, the place i found really hard to find what i had to do was the city of the gods (i dont know how its called in english, i had the german version of the game). I had to run around like an idiot before i got a clue of what to do All cinematics in there were awesome. Even these stones that played a cinematic with parts of the lore in them.
