Set in the Dungeons and Dragons role-playing world of Forgotten Realms, Demon Stone - also available on PC and PS2 - comes to Xbox. In a story penned by best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, the three characters unwittingly release two enormous opposing demonic armies, and must set about getting rid of them without further ado. The game is developed by Stormfront Studios, who have made a name for themselves already in the licensed, hack-and-slash RPG world with their Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers games, and this game is the same style of action-based, fast-paced RPG.

Players have three characters to choose from, whose professions are Fighter, Sorcerer and Rogue, respectively specialising in close-up, long-range and stealth-based combat. In true RPG style, the characters have access to a whole host of skill upgrades, combo moves, weapons and armour. No doubt pleasing to fans of the Dungeons and Dragons universe is the inclusion of official creatures, numbering amongst them Bugbears, Slaadi and Yuan-tis, and official locations such as the Underdark, the Jungles of Chult and the Gemspark Mines. Further gravitas is added with some famous voice talent in the form of Patrick Stewart and Michael Clarke Duncan.
