I don't know if I'm the only one that's played Demon Stone, but it's a game for Xbox which is based on Forgotten Realms., and the storyline was written by R.A. Salvatore. Part way through the game, your party heads to Mithral Hall and meets Drizzt, but surprisingly, I don't remeber having seen Bruneor, Cattie-Bree, Regis, or Wulfgar at all. Has anyone else played Demon Stone and noticed anything?

You only get to see Drizzt, most probably because he is a playable charcater. Remember he replaces the Mage for the one stage. So by that note it would be a lot more difficult to replace the entire original party with now four people (i.e. Drizzt, Wulfgar, Bruenor and Cattie Brie) instead of the original three (Zhai, Illius and Rannek)
"Write everyday line by line, page by page, hour by hour. Do this despite fear. For above all else, beyond imagination and skill, what the world asks of you is courage, courage to risk rejection, ridicule and failure. As you follow the quest for stories told with meaning and beauty study thoughtfully but write boldy. Then like the hero of the fable your dance will dazzle the world." Robert McKee

I haven't played it in a few years. From what I remember, none of the other Companions of the Hall make any appearances, though one of the main characters from the game does make his way into the books.

Since The Demon Stone features the character Rannek from "The Hunter's Blades Trilogy" as a familiar fellow, but he never appears in The Orc King, it's pretty clear  that TDS follows some time after "THBT" and TOK. And Wulfgar leaves the Hall in spring of 1372 DR in the novel TOK, never to return. So that explains why you don't see Wulf in the game.

Cat was planning on undergoing wizard training with Alustriel at the end of TOK, and we learn in The Pirate King that that training involves her spending long periods of time away from the Hall. So that could explain why you don't see her in the game, too.

I'm less sure about Bruenor, though. If chaos came to the Hall and he was anywhere around, you'd better believe that he would come a-running! So he must have been off on some other adventure. Because the League of the Silver Marches had just been formed in 1371 DR right before "THBT", and Bruenor was the Hall's representative to the League, it's possible that he was off on a diplomatic meeting at the time of the game. The League held its meetings in the spring and the fall, so that might help us to pinpoint the timing of the game a little better. Thanks!

Regis could've just been off fishing in the Surbrin River, perhaps. Or maybe he was heading a trade caravan somewhere, just to "get out of the house" for awhile.

Does the game cover the land to the east of the Hall?

How many days are the PCs in and around the environs of the Hall?

"He is blunt, yes, particularly with criticism. He speaks of error without apology and without judgment, simply telling the honest truth and leaving it up to the offender to correct, or not to correct this situation. Bruenor never allows tact or empathy to get in the way of his telling the world how it can be better!"

I have played Demon Stone though I confess that once I reached and beat the Mithral Hall level I stopped playing

the game is pretty damn repetitive. It's been a while but I don't think the heroes of the game are at Mithral Hall itself for more than a day and I can't remember much of what they do east of the Hall. There is a brief appearance of Pwent although it's all wrong since he looks to be wearing just generic dwarf attire, Drizzt does refer to him as "Thibbledorf" so that's how I know.
