    A PS2-era 3D action RPG. Summon allies using your magical music, and explore a world of sword, sorcery, and sarcasm with our hero known only as the Bard. The game's humor sets it apart. Get it, or "it's bad luck to be you."

    Reviewed in Games from a non-gamer

    Bard's pretty witty guy, isn't he. The storyline's very good as well. In this RPG you will summon your sidekicks by playing short tunes and together you will fight angry creatures.

    "Summon minions, hone your combat skills, and woo the ladies in Bard's Tale - a solid action/RPG title that throws you into the shoes of a cocky, lustful, and mostly amoral bard travelling the land in search of new songs." - Jason Stengren
