Inside Mac Games (IMG) (May 06, 2002)
Take these criticisms with a grain of salt. Comparing Avernum 2, a shareware game, to the likes of Baldur’s Gate 2 or other successful, big budget RPG games is inherently unfair; but let it be known that Avernum 2 holds its own against those titles. If you are a fan of RPG games, you will enjoy Avernum 2. If you have to have eye and ear candy as part of your gaming experience, you may not appreciate the action and story of Spiderweb Software’s game; however if you are a fan of those great dungeon crawling games from back in the day, you will love Avernum 2.

On the other hand, Avernum 2 wasn't really created for this crowd. It was created for the hardcore fan of RPGs who'd rather get lost under the depths of an intriguing (and surprisingly unique) story filled with adventure and danger; for those who want to be heroes but who's computers can't handle today's system requirements. Avernum 2 aims for a specific target audience, and it hits them dead on. Trouble is, that target just isn't really that large at the moment.

The core of Avernum 2 is Exile at heart; an Exile that's been cleaned up, streamlined, fine-tuned and expanded, but still Exile. The turn-based action, the plot depth, the spells, and the Giant, Intelligent, Friendly Talking Spiders, all of it is Exile. Fans of the original Exile series, Baldur's Gate players waiting for the multiplayer patch, and people looking for an RPG that's short on graphics but long on gameplay should check Avernum 2 out. People who want something a bit flashier, on the other hand, probably shouldn't.
