Play this game!

Not much to say in this post. Just noticed the ToEE forum had nothing going on and wanted to give a shout to other CPRGers that may have missed it. This is a brilliant game with awesome combat.

Man just another page on GiantBomb for a game I've played and forgotten about. God damn I love how this site can bring a rush of nostalgia at the click of a button. It is a great game and I have to agree if you're into old school RPG's its one to go look into. A bit old now so it should be cheap to pick up!

Oh man I always wanted to play play this game but never got around to it. I should try getting it because I would love to play it still.

If Snide recommends the game then it must be good, but I already have so many other games I still have to play...

Thanks for the heads up. It looks interesting!

Best D&D combat in a video game ever. That said, I hate D&D rules. And the game is more dungeon crawler than RPG.

Anyone know where I can get a working Demo of this game? Everywhere I have tried doesnt seem to work. I install the game and it brings up a window that says buy now or play demo. I click play demo and I get nothing....

Look up the Circle of Eight modpack.  It patches a bunch of stuff, improves stability, and adds content that was originally planed for the game but the developers ran out of time.

Thanks to snide for recommending this in his top 10.  The first town was underwhelming but once you get into the combat the game is amazing.  I also gotta give Wizardry 8 and Arcanum another shot.

Baldur's Gate is the better game, but ToEE did come in an extremely nice box...

Oh man, does it EVER. 
 
Also, THICK MANUAL! Man. I haven't seen a manual this thick since HoMM III.

Just bought this on GOG. The funny thing is that Demon's Souls and Dark Souls hype (I'm very excited for Dark Souls) have given me a craving for some old school, challenging RPG gaming as the cherry on top.

I'm going a bit OT here but I just read HoM&M 3 and went nostalgia-nuts about that instead. I've tried playing the Icewind Dale games but never got too far. Shame :/

This should be the next Random Ass PC Game, but make Vinny play it. He won't be expecting things since he hasn't already played it. Makes for better video.

Play it 6 player co-op instead!

If it makes you feel any better, me and Mento are tackling the game in our blogs. I've made my own party of insane weirdos (and a lady), and Mento's gone down the road of the forumites.
