Temple of Elemental Evil on GOG.com
This game is great. It's very faithful to the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 Edition ruleset. The combat is turned-based and heavily reliant on tactics and abilities of your party. If you are into that sort of thing, get this game. If that doesn't sound appealing at all, you should probably give this game a pass. http://www.co8.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=50
Be sure to pick up the Circle of Eight mods for this game. It fixes a lot of the broken stuff with the original release and adds some missing areas that were in the original pen and paper adventure but not in the game (The brothel being a big one).

GOG's ToEE forum - Instructions of how to get Co8 working properly will likely be found here first.
GOG usually does some extra work to make sure that all of their games run on XP and Vista. I know that the ToEE.exe file can be labeled a virus and deleted sometimes, so if that happens you should reinstall the game and add it to your exceptions.
I'm running Win7 on my main computer and ToEE works great. It also runs fine on my XP netbook and Vista laptop.
GB forums are great and all, but GOG's are better for game-specific help.
EDIT: Correction! After going through their forums myself, I came across a link to this site: http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/The_Temple_of_Elemental_Evil. Lo and behold, I followed the directions there to get the game in widescreen. Just an ini tweak, so it's super easy.
I bought the game from gog.com and installed the CO8 patches. It hasnt crashed once and is running just fine. Im enjoying it so far and I like it much better than Icewind dale I.
You need to grind out a level or two. going to the moat house with a lvl 2 party is a bad idea lol
The game's good and all, but with access to Icewind Dale II and a batch of people willing to play AD&D it's quite pointless.
If I want my pure grind-on, I'll play ID2. Not worth it when ID2 is a much better game, available for a fairly comparable price, and from GOG as well.
