Review Eye of the Beholder

Actually this is a review for the PC version, but it's the same anyway.
This is the first PC game that got me hooked and wanting for more. Actually i started with EOB2, but then i discovered EOB1 and decided to build myself a really powerful party by fighting etc (I even HACKED the saved game to get the three magical weapons :D). Anyway the 2 powerful weapons +4 sword and +5 sword were more than enough for importing into EOB2.
I also loved the stone portals animations. But in any case, the stone dungeons on the spider and dwarf levels gave an atmosphere of dungeons that is hard to beat.
The ending was so dissapointing after having seen EOB2, but seen as a whole, EOB1&2 are the greatest games i've ever played. Also played dungeon hack, and yes Dungeon Master and they don't beat EOB.
In any case, EOB2 is the best. The story combined with Non Player Chars interaction is awesome. From fighting the skeleton warriors, to the chills of the gargoyle level (watch out for the poisonous ants and the gelatine cubes!) and the riddles of the tower levels, EOB2 is a must.
If you can play these 2 games, play them! Too bad there isn't a
