Is it really a sequel? To quote wiktionary: "Narratology. A narrative that is written after another narrative set in the same universe, especially a narrative that is chronologically set after its predecessors."

It's hardly set in the same universe, even the article admits that. Should that be cleared up?

"Betrayal in Antara was poorly received by fans of Krondor for a variety of reasons." The article only lists one: That they had to make up a new world.

"...and crashed regularly." Removed this; it hardly ever/never crashed when either I or my dad played it on a Windows 95/98, and we played it very often sometimes.

Also, the article seems to talk more about the bad points of the game than the game itself, or the good points (like the decent storyline and believable characters). Starlight4ever 20:28, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

I agree with Starlight, this article is too negative. The game had some bad points (it kept crashing during the last chapter), but it had an interesting story, good characters and a well-detailed world (much more original and interesting than Midkemia, in my opinion). It was linear, but no more than most computer games. (Baldric - 22/06/07)

Needs More Info[edit]

The article leaves out any information on voice actors and what roles they played. Also, i agree with the statement that it crashes regularly. It crashes during combat for me and at other points. Also if youre playing it on a newer OS then it crashes more often and the color black will be turned into pink. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Woowootrain (talkcontribs) 19:50, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Article Fixup[edit]

Somewhat randomly, I came to this article to get a correct spelling. The game was a controversial and disappointing release, so I read to see the article reflected that, which it does.

Being curious how it gained so many tags, particularly the ones for non-encyclopedic content, I found it was largely added by MagicKnight0233, whose contributions to Wikipedia in 2007 were mostly to add considerable non-Wiki content to two game articles. He was only briefly active in Wiki. Cleanup could start by deleting almost everything he added.

Similar observations apply to the additions by Rcldragon, although this user was active in 2014.

As nostalgic as players are for games of their past, how interesting that eight years have passed with little positive content change! My excuse is that I was disappointed in it after "Betrayal at Krondor", which was an excellent game that's still worth replaying.

But aren't there any of the game's advocates to speak up for it and remove the fan material? Leptus Froggi (talk) 01:37, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
