The second in a 3 part RPG trilogy, Death Knights of Krynn picks up where the Champions of Krynn left off, this time with the mission being to stop Lord Soth and his undead army. One great aspect of this game is the ability to transfer over your entire group of characters, weapons/spells/currency intact, from the first game. The play follows the same basic setup as the original, with a similar style of combat/movement (much smoother though, especially the combat graphics), and a more intricate plot with more subplots/side missions. As always, there’s many chances to buff up your party and add levels/magical items, and once you get the hang of the game, it’s highly addictive. Again, for the time the graphics weren’t bad, but still nothing special. The real fun is being able to continue to develop your party, and advance through the different stages of the game. All told, a fun game, and one that’s still enjoyable today if you can tolerate less than impressive graphics. I most also comment that the most irritating part of the game is SSI’s continued insistence on using journal keywords as passwords for loading the game. It gets old, but really doesn’t disrupt the flow of the game.
