Shamed from their homeland, in pursuit of their own, united by destiny, a fighter, a sorcerer and a rogue. In a land of mystery and enchantment, they must find the Demon Stone and recapture the warring leaders before the Realms are doomed for ever...

Five months after it was available on the PS2 Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone is finally released for the Xbox.

In this Dungeons and Dragons style fantasy game you direct a party of three characters - fighter, sorcerer and rogue. 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 artificial intelligence. For example, when the player controls the fighter, the sorcerer and rogue will continue to engage in combat, cast spells and assist the player in defeating all challengers.

In many situations, the characters will be able to divide and conquer difficult objectives - while the fighter holds back a horde of Yuan-Ti snakemen with brute force, the sorcerer supports him with his magic while the rogue sneaks above and behind them in order to finish them off.

This real-time, on-the-fly character switching design allows Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone to challenge players with various encounters. 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.

Part of the skill of this game is working out which character you need to play during each challenge - get it wrong and your team may come to a sticky end, get it right and you'll be mocking your opponents.

It looks and play fantastically. This is a game for those who like big action, pretty graphics and engaging gameplay.
