It used to be that the fantasy worlds of Dungeon and Dragons existed only within the heads of bearded acolytes, its characters and legends described breathily in bedrooms and kitchens, its rich history determined by the tumblings of strangely shaped dice. Now like so many fantasy worlds, it can be brought vividly to life on today’s advanced computer hardware.

Set in the Dungeons and Dragons role-playing world of Forgotten Realms, Demon Stone, already available on PS2 and Xbox, now comes to PC. In a story penned by best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, the three characters unwittingly release two enormous opposing demonic armies, and must set about getting rid of them without further ado. The game is developed by Stormfront Studios, who have made a name for themselves already in the licensed, hack-and-slash RPG world with their Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers games published by Electronic Arts. This game is the same style of action-based, fast-paced RPG. Players have three characters to choose from, whose professions are Fighter, Sorcerer and Rogue, respectively specialising in close-up, long-range and stealth-based combat. In true RPG style, the characters have access to a whole host of skill upgrades, combo moves, weapons and armour. No doubt pleasing to fans of the Dungeons and Dragons universe is the inclusion of official creatures, numbering amongst them Bugbears, Slaadi and Yuan-tis, and official locations such as the Underdark, the Jungles of Chult and the Gemspark Mines. Further gravitas is added with some famous voice talent in the form of Patrick Stewart and Michael Clarke Duncan.
