The Bard’s Tale: Remastered and Resnarkled
Developer: InXile Entertainment
Genres: Interactive Story, RPG
Featuring Cary Elwes of The Prince Bride fame, and following a script that truly puts the snark in Resnarkled, The Bard's Tale could talk its way out of any confrontation. Sadly, sub-par, boring combat, and a restrictive summoning system mean you'll be rolling ability checks with a negative modifier. If only The Bard's Tale was more proficient—should've chosen a wizard or a rogue.
Be advised that The Bard’s Tale has aged in more ways than one, especially in the visual department, but it’s still quite unique due to its fourth wall-breaking premise and hilarious performances by Cary Elwes and Tony Jay. It’s a simple action RPG with a straightforward gameplay loop that is a perfect fit for a portable system like the Switch.
