Critics Consensus: Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance fails to live up to the potential of its replacement and the legacy of the Dark Alliance name. The game has solid level design, but combat is horribly repetitive, three are a ton of bugs, and the story is forgettable.

4/10
Travis Northup (IGN)

Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is a tedious co-op adventure with lots of goblins and even more bugs.

June 21, 2021 |

The Dark Alliance revival lacks finesse, and local co-op, but give it time and it’s not without its own charms.

I wrack my brain trying to figure out Dark Alliance’s strengths, and I’m not coming up with much. The level design works surprisingly well for multiplayer. I was afraid looting would fall by the wayside, but every time a fight would wrap up, everyone would run off in different directions and grab chests before finally moving on. I didn’t feel like things were getting missed. Well, except for the shoes that would pop out of chests some other player would open. Those just rot, forgotten on the ground.

Game Description / Storyline:

Set in the Forgotten Realms, the game features real-time combat and dynamic co-op gameplay, and pits the infamous Drizzt Do’Urden and his legendary companions – Catti-brie, Bruenor, and Wulfgar – against some of the most iconic monsters from the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Frost Giants, Beholders, and White Dragons roam the frozen tundra of Icewind Dale in search of the Crystal Shard— and it’s up to the companions to muster the strength to stop them from claiming and using it to destroy their home.
