Co-Optimus, the best (and sadly one of the few) sites dedicated to cooperative video games takes a look back from time to time at classic Cooperative games of the past. In honor of the newest upcoming Dungeons & Dragons video games, Daggerdale, Co-Optimus takes an opportunity to remember Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance.
The retro-review was pretty favorable. The writer remembers both the first Dark Alliance and it's sequel fondly, particularly for it's co-op mode. I admit myself not overly fond of Dark Alliance. I saw it as a Diablo Clone, and not a particularly good one. Still, I had fun playing it with friends. As these D&D beaters went I thought Dungeons & Dragons Heroes was better. It allowed for four player action rather than just the two allowed in Dark Alliance, something not to be sneezed at.
