Sega Genesis / Mega Drive : Dungeons & Dragons Warriors of the Eternals Sun

Whereas the remainder of the world went completely loopy over the latest Super Mario Bros. film, I bucked the development by going to the cinema to see Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Amongst Thieves as an alternative. I am not solely certain why I picked that film – I’ve by no means had a large affinity in direction of the tabletop recreation, and, reality be informed, my fondest D&D reminiscences are related to the Saturday morning cartoon present from the Nineteen Eighties. Additionally, I nonetheless carry the scars from watching the completely dreadful 2000 Dungeons & Dragons film, so that you’d assume I might have recognized higher.

I got here away pleasantly shocked; the movie would not take itself severely and has some neat motion sequences – but it surely additionally inspired me to choose up the D&D online game I related with probably the most as a child: Warriors of the Eternals Sun on the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive.

Developed by Westwood Studios – the identical firm behind the excellent Dungeons & Dragons: Eye of the Beholder – this top-down RPG served as a mild introduction to D&D for my youthful self, and I nonetheless have a smooth spot for it, even in the present day.

Fortunately, it isn’t a very costly recreation to choose up lately and is properly price a glance when you’re eager to see how these RPGs have advanced over time. It is notable for the involvement of Ed Annunziata, who would later work on the Ecco collection.
