Summary: For players who enjoy a story driven gaming experience Siege Of Avalon delivers, it's one of those games (much like Torment) that brings on the nostalgia in full force. When I saw a copy listed here there was no question about picking it up to replace my old discs.
Summary: It is truly like reading a book, it provides an excellent storyline, very entertaining, excellent game play, tons of unique equipment and just an overall good roleplaying game. For 7 dollars to buy, you cannot go wrong. If you enjoy games like Baulder's gate, Torment and neverwinter night, this game is a must have. I only wish it was a bit longer with more areas to play. The Graphics in this game, in my opinion is much better than Baulder's gate 2.
Summary: This CD contains 6 levels that produce a lot of gaming fun. You have a light character building feature--like Revenant and Soulbridger. It's not a damanding effort to get you character into a fight or successfully finding key items and doorways. If you mess up, the game automatically sets an level option to replay a level. There are a few quests that must be performed before you succeed in levels 3-6. But if you get lost, there are several great game walkthrus online.
Summary: When this game actually works well, it's a lot of fun. But every time I try to play it I have to install it again, sometimes five times a day. Also, while the game functioned very well inside the walls of Avalon, outside in the village it freezes up frequently and moves jerkily. If you think it will work on your computer, buy it! If you're not sure, it's not worth the frustration.
Summary: Thanks for reading my review of this game. At first I was addicted to the thing:), but as time wore on the game siege of avalon really got boring in the middle:(. Especially the dumb(no offense to the creators and desighners etc...)Party members. But the reason I gave it a good review is with a walkthrough it's a pretty decent game. Sure, without the walkthrough it's nigh impossible, and if you mess up your screwed for the whole game. But it inspired me.
Summary: I have played a fair number of RPG games, but rarely have I been so pulled into a game for more than just the ability to fight or to cast spells. There is actually a PLOT in this game, and it is clearly well thought-out and integrated. The character interactions are great and the graphics are more than adequate.
Summary: I've had this thing a months and i'm only 1/3 of the way through a game(I have beaten it but I have to go back and play as another character.) I have to say that I have one problem, the interface can be tricky and it takes some time to load. Other then that it is an enjoyable experience.
Summary: Even my 8 year old daughter has been intrigued by the story and action of this game. One of the first lessons she learned, within about one hour of play, was how a buy and sell market worked. She was amazed that it cost more to buy the same item than she could sell it for, allowing me to explain to her how the marketplace works. We have spent many enjoyable hours together reading this book and moving through the richly textured landscape.

Summary: This is a good game with a lot of reading as well as action. You can pick every aspect of your character from skin tone, long or short hair to facial hair, and clothes to his attributes(alot more control on attributes than BG, which was horrid) The best part is it is like playing six games in one(6 chapters). My only gripe is installation. If you have an ATI video card, be wary.
