Xbox 360Game industry News (GiN) (Apr 18, 2011)
While it may not enthrall the hardcore RPG crowd, I believe Faery is the perfect game to introduce new gamers to basic RPG tactics and gameplay. And even hardcore gamers will find a lot of value and gameplay in this colorful, unique kingdom of Faeries. And you can't beat the price, making it a great value as well.

While some may make the case that Faery: Legends of Avalon is too simple, or that it doesn't bring much new to the table, I find that attitude hard to understand. For a very reasonably-priced and small-scale download, players get a well-rounded RPG featuring a fantastic art style and unconventional subject matter that's rarely (if ever) been covered. The adventure may not last for sixty hours or make players sweat with grinding difficulty, but when taken in the proper context, Faery is a noteworthy effort that I'd very much like to see more of.

As a whole, the game is simple, but still fun. I kept having a drive to press on. The game definitely came out of left field, and did surprise me with the quality, when I knew nothing about it going in. It is good to see a sleeper hit like this on the downloadable channel every once in a while. If you have the time to spare, or want to be introduced into the RPG genre, definitely give the game a shot, as I feel you will not be disappointed.

Ich liebe Rollenspiele, in denen ich stundenlang im Skilltree versinken, über clevere Kampftaktiken grübeln und düster-erwachsene Abenteuer bestehen kann. All das geht in Faery: Legends of Avalon nicht. Doch anstatt das Spiel jetzt zu verteufeln, muss ich eingestehen: Das märchenhafte Feen-Abenteuer hat es mir tatsächlich angetan. Ähnlich wie in einem Tim Burton-Film, den Büchern von Lewis Carroll oder Anime-Märchen á la »Chihiros Reise ins Zauberland« kann ich hier in einer vermeintlich kindlichen Welt versinken und als Erwachsener trotzdem Freude an den tiefgründigen Geschichten, grotesken Charakteren oder skurrilen Welten empfinden. Ich persönlich kann jedem nur empfehlen, Faery: Legends of Avalon trotz seiner Fehler eine Chance zu geben.

Faery: Legends of Avalon will only appeal to a certain niche group, but if you’re in that group, you’ve been in it for a while. It doesn’t excel in all areas and actually disappoints in others but it’s still a lengthy, turn-based fantasy RPG that has it where it counts, especially where fans of the genre are concerned. And I think that’s important to note for a lot of our readers.

Overall, Faery: Legends of Avalon is a great attempt at bringing the RPG genre to the Xbox Live Arcade. Very few downloadable titles contain as much depth as this and, at 1200 Microsoft Points; this is certainly a game to purchase if you enjoyed the trial.

Trots bristerna hade jag väldigt kul med Faery, och berättelsen med sina intressanta personligheter gjorde mig sugen på att se mer. Och när det ganska abrupta slutet dyker upp med "Fortsättning följer" hoppas jag faktiskt att det kommer en sådan.

I give Spiders credit for their work on Faery: Legends of Avalon. If they maintain the quality music and dialogue from the game, improve the plot, and fix the controls and world maps, they'll have a decent game on their hands, worth the 1200 MS points. In that case, pick up the first episode of the series. Otherwise, your money is better spent elsewhere.

Xbox 360Spazio Games (Feb 03, 2011)
Faery: Legend Of Avalon è un titolo onesto e ben realizzato. I suoi punti di forza sono un design particolarmente ispirato che non impiegherà molto a rapirvi e un sistema di movimento all’interno dei vari mondi di gioco decisamente originale. Avendo una difficoltà non elevatissima lo rende giocabile anche dai neofiti del genere. Per 1200 MS points, l’acquisto è consigliato.

Xbox 360GameZone (Jan 09, 2011)
A few other issues such as a lack of voice acting and plenty of typos mar what is otherwise an enjoyable experience, but there is still a considerable amount of charm to be found in this RPG-lite adventure. Hopefully people give it the chance it deserves; it's not perfect, but it is a great addition to the genre, and unparalleled on XBLA.

Det er lett å like spelet, men det er samtidig ikkje mogleg å sjå bort frå alle dei elementa som stoggar det frå å nå høgt opp. Eg kan ikkje kalle dei direkte irriterande, men dei kunne ha vore betre. Kampane hadde hatt godt av ei runde til i tankeboksen, og sjølv om det er moro å byggje karakteren din er det vanskeleg å sjå bort frå den stive føringa det heile raskt tek. Dette er ikkje nødvendigvis negativt i seg sjølv, men i Faery endar det opp med at du kan bli ganske hemma i møtet med fiendane. Kampane og alt det som følgjer med dei er likevel ikkje det viktigaste i spelet. Mesteparten av tida blir brukt på å reise rundt i fornøyelege fantasimiljø fulle av artige skapningar, noko som strengt tatt er temmeleg moro.

Overall I’m finding it difficult to assign a score to Faery: Legends of Avalon because for every good point there is a bad. It’s definitely an opinion splitter, and some will absolutely love it and forgive its problems, whilst others will pick it to pieces in a matter of minutes. Personally I enjoyed the story and could live with its old school origins, add in the fact it’s a rather lengthy affair for a downloadable title and you have something that is worth playing. If TSA did half points it would get a solid seven and a half.

WindowsGamingXP (Jun 25, 2011)
"Faery: Legends of Avalon" ist vielleicht kein typisches Rollenspiel mit taktischer Tiefe in den Kämpfen, aber es ist immerhin ein unterhaltsamer, ungefähr acht Stunden anhaltender Trip in ein magisches Abenteuer. Die rundenbasierten Kämpfe hätten intensiver und die Umgebung etwas Schöner sein können, ganz zu schweigen von der Steuerung, und trotzdem darf man das Spiel nicht abschreiben. Mein Tipp: Besorgen Sie sich das Spiel für die Xbox 360 oder die PS3. "Faery" ist ein witziges Rollenspiel, aber die Konsolenversion ist auf jeden Fall empfehlenswerter und preisgünstiger.

Faery - Legends of Avalon è un buon gioco di ruolo economico. Sicuramente si fa apprezzare dal lato creativo, con l'inventiva delle ambientazioni che riesce a compensare in parte le carenze tecniche. D'altra parte, l'aver scelto una strutturazione così rigida dei mondi ha tolto parecchio respiro alla narrazione e alle possibilità che avrebbe aperto farli comunicare maggiormente. Bene invece com'è stata sfruttata la natura della protagonista per farla spostare, anche se i già sottolineati problemi di sovrapposizione dei compagni tolgono qualcosa anche a questo aspetto.

PlayStation 3IGN (Jan 14, 2011)
Faery is a solid fantasy role-playing game, but the short tale means it’s not quite worth the $15 price tag. As part of an episodic endeavor, the first installment naturally leaves you feeling like the story is unresolved, but it’s great fun to fly around interesting backdrops. The massive character customization also makes your faery or elf feel unique, so if you enjoy leveling up and finding loot, you should check out Faery: Legends of Avalon.

Xbox 3603D Juegos (Nov 17, 2010)
Muy clásico pero lo suficientemente divertido e interesante como para mantenernos las 12-15 horas de juego que dura pegados a la pantalla. Sí, es cierto que hay diversos aspectos como la imposibilidad de desarrollar las habilidades de nuestros aliados, o la simpleza de las misiones y los combates, que le hacen perder puntos a Faery, pero la sencilla historia que narra –basada en el respeto por la naturaleza y las fantasías infantiles- y que en líneas generales cumple con nota en todos sus apartados jugables, convierten a esta obra de Spiders en uno de esos títulos que los amantes al rol no deberían dejar escapar.

Faery bietet auch auf dem PC solide Fantasy-Unterhaltung für Rollenspieler, die gerne eine gewisse Entscheidungsfreiheit genießen und skurrile Charaktere mögen. Man trifft auf dichtende Trolle, einsame Schnapsbrenner oder Galionsfiguren mit Liebeskummer. Man beeinflusst Gesprächsverläufe, erhält unterschiedlich lösbare Aufgaben und sondiert potentielle Fertigkeiten und Begleiter. Spielwelt und Umfang sind überschaubar, überzeugen allerdings mit abwechslungsreicher Gestaltung und optionalen Inhalten. Die Erkundung aus der Luft ist jedoch recht träge und vor allem in engen Arealen unübersichtlich, während die rundenbasierten Kämpfe gegen Gnome, Nixen und Ghuls ungemein zäh und bieder vonstatten gehen - da fehlen nennenswerte Herausforderungen. Vermutlich hätte der Titel als reines Action-Adventure wesentlich besser funktioniert, denn die simple, aber flexible Charakterentwicklung und das dynamische Quest-Design wissen durchaus zu gefallen.

Xbox 360Official XBox Magazine (Jan 13, 2011)
Trinket-gathering and whack-a-mole can’t turn Faery into a budget-priced classic. But between its quaint characters and charming attitude, it’s still an entertaining enough way to while away a few afternoons in service to imaginary nobility.

Xbox 360Game Vortex (Nov 28, 2010)
Faery: Legends of Avalon is a interesting little offering. There are a few interesting things going on under the hood, indicating the game is aiming for something just a little different. At the same time, there's a noticeable lack of understanding about what makes these elements fun in the first place. Faery is a good attempt, but falls short in execution, especially considering the asking price.

PlayStation 3Futuregamez.net (Feb 06, 2011)
Faery: Legends of Avalon is an average game that will provide a bit of entertainment but ultimately lacks any real pizazz to make it stand out in any categories. Not having voiceovers in a game these days is very jarring - it's not like there are thousands of lines of dialogue. The visuals are pretty nice though and you could consider this a "RPG-lite" for youngsters perhaps.

Xbox 360Gameplay (Benelux) (Dec 24, 2010)
Een gemakkelijk speelbare turnbased RPG met vier gevarieerde maar kleine werelden waar je vrij kan in rondvliegen. De gevechten worden na een tijdje wel wat slaapverwekkend.

WindowsLegendra (Oct 19, 2011)
Faery: Legends of Avalon ne paie pas de mine et n'apporte objectivement rien au genre, avec ses mécanismes archaïques et maintes fois utilisés. Il se contente de proposer une courte mais très agréable et envoutante balade revisitant nombre de légendes et mythologies. Et c'est déjà pas mal.

Xbox 360Gamereactor (Sweden) (Nov 17, 2010)
Idén till spelet är bra och lockande och Faery erbjuder en intressant och fantasifull historia där du får äran att vara huvudkaraktär. Tyvärr räcker det inte med bara en bra idé utan det finns en hel del tekniska störmoment som drar ned väldigt mycket på hela spelupplevelsen och gör att det inte riktigt blir så bra som grundtanken ger förutsättningar för.

WindowsAbsolute Games (AG.ru) (Jun 08, 2011)
Вместо того чтобы впихивать в низкобюджетный проект лишние детали, французам следовало довести его до ума. Faery могла стать очень красивой и трогательной сказкой, а оказалась странным ассорти. Плохой ее вроде и не назовешь, но играть не стоит даже ради развязки — скомканный финал заставляет недоуменно приподнять бровь. Сомневаюсь, что Spiders способна сделать продолжение.

Faery: Legends of Avalon is bepaald geen sprookje. Het zelf maken van jouw fee is een van de weinige hoogtepunten uit de game. De game is te kort en op audiovisueel gebied erg middelmatig.

Xbox 360RPGamer (Nov 15, 2010)
For 1200 Microsoft Points, Faery will net you roughly ten hours of amusement. Although the game never manages to be much more than average, the colorful dialogue and impressive visual design make it a world worth exploring. The game also ends with a "To Be Continued," meaning that a sequel or possibly sequels could be in the works. Though the minimalistic plot fails to leave a lasting impression, the game's stylistic charm can't be denied.

PlayStation 3PSN Stores (Apr 08, 2011)
Legends of Avalon is a solid bargain bin RPG that’s worth a try if you’re at all interested in RPGs or Faeries. The graphics are good-looking for the most part. I did experience some slowdown at points, and some of the ghost ship world was simply too dark, but overall I had a nice time touring the varied worlds. The music tracks are solid, if a bit repetitive. The combat is turn-based and feels as dated as ever. Some of the magic spells look cool, but besides for that you’re not going to be blown away by the many encounters. If you’re looking for an RPG that you can sink 10+ hours into, Faery is a legitimate candidate. At $15 it’s not a bad buy, but if you can find it for any less then you might as well strap on your wings and give it a fly.

PlayStation 3PlayStation Lifestyle (Feb 02, 2011)
So you’ve got a basic turn-based RPG with a finely-detailed fantasy setting. The music is pleasing, and the art style is impressive. But with a weak story, bland fetch quests comprising the majority of your campaign, and absolutely no voiceover work whatsoever, this game is hard to recommend to anyone but fans of this genre of games. There’s nothing terrible about Faery: Legends of Avalon, it’s just that there’s nothing that makes the game stand out from all the countless RPGs before it.

WindowsEurogamer.it (May 09, 2011)
Un vero peccato, considerato l'ottimo sistema di gestione dei punti abilità e una storia che, seppur lineare, cattura il giocatore con le sue atmosfere incantate. In un mercato dalla concorrenza spietata come quello PC, l'RPG di casa Focus Home Interactive rischia di passare inosservato anche dagli amanti irriducibili del genere fantasy: quel che si dice una favola dal finale triste.

Xbox 360Game Revolution (Dec 07, 2010)
Faery is commendable for being among the first foray of the core RPG genre in the downloadable space dominated by twin-stick shooters and bite-sized platformers. With a price tag of $15, Faery's total playtime of anywhere upwards of 10 hours makes shelling out Microsoft's funny money worth it, even though you shouldn't expect to be completely blown away by what you've just bought.

Xbox 360Hooked Gamers (Nov 26, 2010)
Despite the ongoing list of criticism I hold for Faery, there is something about it that comes through that prevents me from completely writing it off. Do not get me wrong, as a game Faery disappoints in many ways. But there is a childlike charm that shines through. The imagination and character that the game contains is superb and the creative team at developer Spider should be acknowledged for their efforts. The concept art is truly exceptional and the soundtrack acts as the duct tape that holds together the many fragments this game is delivered in. You also have to bear in mind that this is quite a unique game on Xbox Live Arcade with not really many competitors in its genre. So I would recommend Faery: Legends of Avalon to those younger players who enjoy casual RPG’s or if you are completely new to the genre. I would like to add that the whole genre should not be judged by this title alone as it is quite a poor example overall.

PlayStation 3Game Watcher (Feb 09, 2011)
How utterly average-sounding can you get, huh? With a little sprucing up, perhaps some voice-acting and some real, game-changing decisions to make, Faery: Legends of Avalon could have been a hidden gem. Instead, it's the kind of RPG that developers try their best not to create.

Xbox 360PAL Gaming Network (PALGN) (Feb 26, 2011)
Faery is really quite a bland game with an uninspired combat system and basic storyline. Still, it does serve its purpose as a nice bit of eye candy.

Xbox 360HonestGamers (Jan 17, 2012)
While I consider Legends of Avalon to be mediocre, it has the potential to be a good stepping stone for Spiders. When you consider the immense amount of folklore passed on through cultures, there is a near-infinite amount of subject matter to pick from for however many sequels this game will have. If effort is placed into improving the writing, making combat a more fun experience against more interesting creatures and improving a few other things, I can see me having an overall positive feeling about this game, as it at least was the beginning of something special. But if the next game also is marred with enough flaws to also be little more than a good concept somewhat lacking in execution, I doubt I'll have any fond memories of my first trip to Avalon.

Xbox 360GameSpot (Nov 15, 2010)
After five or six hours, Faery: Legends of Avalon presents another all-black or all-white decision that makes no difference one way or another, because the game immediately ends the moment you make it. That sounds frustrating, but it's actually an appropriate conclusion to a game that ushers you from one insignificant decision to the next. Choice is good, but it rings hollow when you have no investment in the potential consequences. Thus, Legends of Avalon amounts to a bunch of bland missions separated by elementary turn-based battles that inspire only a few faint yawns. Pass on this particular fairy tale and you'll exponentially improve your odds of living happily ever after.

Faery: Legends of Avalon set out to do a lot, and we have to respect the game's developers for that. Between the wide variety of locales, the impressive bits of character customization, and the myriad choices both big and small, this game had lofty ambitions. Sadly, the game does very few things right – the poor design and garbled English make this a sloppy offering that isn't worth your time or money.

Xbox 360We Got This Covered (Dec 15, 2010)
Overall, I say pass on Faery: Legends of Avalon, as it is almost no fun once you get past the fact that you get to fly around the world. The game might look good, but shows why it flew under the radar onto the Arcade with a boring errand trip through a fairy tale land.
