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 was a great game. The plotline never fails, the various cave and things never bore, it's very fun. HOWEVER. I did not like the outdoor travel. Part of the fun of playing Avernum 6 (the one a played before this) was traveling between cities and finding a bunch of secret caves and small groups of enemies. You can still do that now, but it's flare seems to have been taken away somehow.
Summary: If people aren't familiar if the Avernum series, it's a nostalgia fest for old-school gamers who want a sense of epic adventure and a rich environment to explore. Avernum: Escape from the Pit takes you on a journey as four adventurers, sent to the underworld of Avernum by the iron-fisted empire. Avernum is basically the solution of all of the Empire's problem.
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.
Classic D&D style game with lots of attention to detail

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.
