Unfortunately I could only recommend the game to the most diehard fans of the originals. The game has several cool features, but it ends up losing a lot of fun factor to poor UI and some highly tedious elements.
+Graphics and environments are well done, dungeons are interesting and adventure/GM text is fun
+Good variety of classes, skills, and spells
+Ability to customize your own party of up to 6 characters
+Management of party health on several levels including HP, starvation, thirst, warmth for the winter, etc.
+Tactical battles, ability to automate/accelerate battles
-World outside feels dead; can't talk to people, look inside boxes/barrels, or interact with much of anything, no visible enemies. You will sadly miss almost nothing just by walking around in map mode and ignoring the 3D environments.
-Travel between towns can be very painstaking; sometimes going through 20 or more camp/resting screens with little or no activity. Worse, most towns have little/nothing to offer and you cannot fast travel or even queue travel past 1 town.
-Poor descriptions on items and equipment; likely to have unlisted class restrictions
-Failure chances for attacks and spells are so high most battles, especially early, every action taken feels like punishment
-Most game time will be spent walking or sleeping. It is as exciting as it sounds.
