Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II

To really get into the mood of this fantasy-themed title, grab a cloak and some 20-sided dice. Okay, lose the dice; this D&D-based game requires only the ability to hack and slash at all manner of monsters while playing one of five character types. And while the game's top-down perspective doesn't make axing the skeletal demons any more realistic, working your way through this adventure can be a magical experience.
