The Dark Eye : Book of Heroes
Top Critic Average
Despite some interesting mechanics that make the game feel like a true adaptation of a tabletop RPG, The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes is a cRPG that needed a lot more time in the oven. With some technical issues to boot, it is really impossible to recommend the game in its current state to any type of RPG enthusiast, as there are classic and modern games that offer much better experiences.
The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes is a game that in many ways, takes the essence of a good table-top game and directly translates it into a competent, online dungeon-crawling RPG.
A seemingly faithful adaptation of a German RPG franchise that may be too detached and boring for modern players.
Considering the fact that Book of Heroes doesn’t even feature a real story or coherent character progression, then I don’t think that even die-hard fans of The Dark Eye will really enjoy it. I don’t know who this game is supposed to be aimed at, but for me it was one of the most boring RPG experiences I’ve had in a long time, and that’s before even getting into all the bugs and genuinely awful design decisions.
The new game from the popular Dark Eye universe is missing in the very basic aspects that make the game a good game

The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes is a fantasy RPG available on Steam for $30. At this point, I can not recommend the game due to its outdated graphics, clunky mechanics, boring combat and other problems.
