(Capítulos 1-4 finalizados, capítulo 5 comenzado y capítulo 9 casi terminado)

Un RPG de manejo arcade con mucho humor y mucha profundidad en los efectos de tus acciones.

Pros:
-El combate es sencillo y diverso, y más difícil de lo que aparenta.
-El sistema de inventario es prácticamente un sistema de subida de nivel paralelo y evita que pierdas el tiempo organizando objetos.
-Repleto de humor absurdo, negro, de autoparodia...
-Las canciones.
-Atención al detalle en los personajes, los instrumentos musicales... te llevarás más de una sorpresa.

Cons:
-A veces abusa de ciertas mecánicas de combate y enemigos.
-De cuando en cuando da fallos.

I have no idea how to get this to run on newer Windows OS than it claims support for and I suspect it's actually WMP11 that's causing the game to malfunction. Originally I assumed it was SafeDisc as usual, but since cracks don't solve the problem, the issue is not related to it (completely).

Official description
A QUEST FOR COIN & CLEAVAGE

In a legend of the Orkney Islands, take on the role of the Bard - a sardonic, opportunistic musician and adventurer, driven by carnal rather than noble pursuits. Forget your quest to save the world; you are interested in just two things - coin and cleavage.

* The modern interpretation of the grandfather of role-playing games, by the original producer - Brian Fargo.
* A third-person action/role-playing game featuring wicked humour and intriguing personalities.
* Develop your combat party by summoning a group of eccentrics and misfits to do your bidding.
* A deep role-playing experience with non-linear game play resulting in many different outcomes and true replay value.

Description
A legal loophole allows InXile Entertainment to use the name "The Bard's Tale", but it is otherwise unrelated to the original series.
