    This is the fifth game released from Spiderweb Software, and it is a nice addition to their lineup. It is a cool RPG game for both the Macintosh and PC platforms. Not a whole lot of games these days have the true feel of the original retro RPG style taste. Nethergate tries to maintain that pace of the old school RPG game. The graphics aren't the prettiest in the world, they aren't even close in fact. But all the emphasis on this game is in the gameplay and storyline, both of which are excellent. The game itself is a lot of fun and there are two sides to the story. You can play either side of the story, meaning it is almost two games in one (two seperate long quests anway). The game is very lengthy and is quite fun. There is nothing very revolutionary or anything that this game will usher in in the next century for video games to come, but the it is really a lot of fun to play. Getting into the game is quite easy as the game will give lots of hints on how to do's and what to do's of the sort.
    What are the gameplay, controls, and interface like?
