The Bard's Tale Remastered and Resnarkled: A Luckyer Review

The Bard's Tale is a classic action role-playing game that was originally released in 2004 for PlayStation 2 and Xbox. It is a parody of the fantasy genre, featuring a sarcastic and selfish protagonist who uses his musical abilities to summon allies and manipulate the world. The game is full of humor, references, and fourth-wall breaking moments, as well as a rich and varied gameplay that includes exploration, combat, puzzles, and mini-games.


In 2023, the game was remastered and resnarkled by inXile Entertainment, the same developer who created the original version. The remastered edition features improved graphics, performance, sound, and user interface, as well as additional content such as the original classic trilogy of The Bard's Tale 1, 2, and 3. The game is available on Steam, PlayStation Store, and other platforms.

As a fan of the original game, I was eager to revisit the hilarious and charming adventure of the Bard. I was not disappointed by the remastered edition, which preserved the essence of the game while enhancing its presentation and accessibility. The game still looks great, even by today's standards, thanks to the colorful and detailed art style. The voice acting is superb, especially by Cary Elwes as the Bard and Tony Jay as the Narrator, who deliver witty and memorable lines with perfect timing and tone. The music is catchy and varied, ranging from folk songs to rock tunes to orchestral pieces. The gameplay is smooth and responsive, with intuitive controls and menus. The game also offers a lot of replay value, with different choices, endings, secrets, achievements, and difficulty levels.

The remastered edition also adds some new features that enhance the experience. The game now supports high-resolution and widescreen modes, as well as keyboard and mouse controls for PC users. The game also supports multiple languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, and Russian. The game also includes the original classic games The Bard's Tale 1, 2, and 3, which are a nice bonus for fans of old-school RPGs. The game also has some external links on the main menu that lead to support pages and related media. The game also fixes some bugs that were present in the original console release.

The only minor complaint I have about the remastered edition is that it does not add any new content or features that would make it more appealing to new players or veterans who have already played the game before. The game is essentially the same as it was in 2004, with some cosmetic and technical improvements. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing, as the game still holds up well after almost two decades. The game is still fun, funny, and engaging, with a unique style and personality that sets it apart from other RPGs.

In conclusion, The Bard's Tale Remastered and Resnarkled is a great way to experience or re-experience one of the best action RPGs ever made. It is a game that does not take itself too seriously, but still offers a rich and rewarding gameplay that will keep you entertained for hours. It is a game that will make you laugh out loud, but also make you care about the characters and the story. It is a game that deserves to be played by anyone who loves RPGs or comedy or both.

I give it a luckyer rating of 9/10.
