Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice is the definitive version of Dragon Fantasy Book II. It is a love letter to 16-bit RPGs with its tongue firmly planted in cheek. It may not surpass the fan favorites of that era, but it is a worthy homage and recommended to anyone who is a fan of old school RPGs.
