Summary: Very good game! Similar to the Baldur's Gate series or even Ultima Pros- AN ACTUAL PLOT, lots of gameplay for the money, more of a thinking and strategy game than many new games, will run on almost any computer (even my old laptop), lots of quests and not too linear, not too complicated to remember if you stop playing for a while Cons - dated graphics, learn as you go strategy, "3d" perspective sometimes make objects hard to click on or see clearly Overall a very good...
Summary: the gameplay is classically satisfying and the quests are fun. if you are a fan of old-school (and turn-based) rpg's then pick this one up, you'll like it. think of it as a "turn-based alundra" and you got it.
Summary: I own this game for ipad, and play it on my linux desktop using wine. I am at a loss as to how it can even be compared to a game on the VIC-20 platform, as I owned a slew of older computers and have played many games on each of them over the decades. Sure, the graphics are 'subtle' but the combat strategy is amazing. The battles would make any chess player drool with anticipation. It is like taking a revisit to games like ultima, bloodstone, or magic candle.
Summary: This game is GREAT! have only played the first geneforge and avadon game from spider web but this is probably my favourite. Even though it shares the same mechanics and graphics as avadon this game feels more like ultima or morrowind to me. Easy to get into, interesting setting and a ton of freedom and conent.
Summary: I've put +65 hours in this game, and I haven't finished it yet. The writing is good, the story as well is just fine. Once you get the mechanics and get into it, you'll forget about the poor graphics Plain old 90 's RPG, with tons of game hours.
Summary: This game was an exciting game to play with a deep storyline and that old school RPG feel one craves after a long time. There is lots of reading but it's totally worth it - there's some lovely sarcastic dialogue which adds some laughs to the game. The big world will keep you entertained for at LEAST 20-30 hours - but beware I would highly recommend keeping a notepad nearby for notes and where everything is along with some mysteries you need to figure out (: Highly...
Summary: Top down graphics, no camera zoom, who cares. this is a fun game to play. quest thruout the caverns of the area. fight monsters, run questing errands. learn about Avernum. this game seems dated, but it is fun all the same. quick graphics, quick load screens, what few there are. worth the money paid.
