Atari's PR folks rolled a 10-sided die and then sent us a note saying that Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone should be in stores today.
Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone is an action game set in the Dungeons & Dragons world.
In the game, players direct a party of three characters–Fighter, Sorcerer, and Rogue. Each of the characters excels at a certain type of gameplay. The Fighter thrives in melee combat, the Sorcerer is excellent at ranged and magical combat, and the Rogue excels at jumping, sneaking, and disarming traps. The player controls one party member at a time–switching between them on the fly–while the other party members are controlled by the engine's sophisticated artificial intelligence.
Characters can perform amazing attacks and feats at the simple touch of a button, but the system has sophisticated features for advanced players who want to tailor their attacks to maximize their damage in specific situations. Unique special attacks, combinations, linked combos, super attacks, and even group super attacks allow advanced players to excel against their most fearsome foes.
The game was developed by Stormfront Studios, developers of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers; features a storyline developed by New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore; and includes the voice talents of actors Patrick Stewart and Michael Clarke Duncan.
Demon Stone for the PlayStation 2 is available now for an estimated price of $49.95 and is rated "T" for Teen.
