This is the sort of game that allows kids to understand why we love games from the early Ultima, Wizardry and Might & Magic series without having to look at pixilated DOSBox images. The content isn't extreme in any way - mild blood, mild language and violence. The dialogue is interesting without being complex, funny without being low-brow, and engaging throughout. Both of my boys have been loving this game (as well as Avernum 5 as I mentioned) and look forward to the next chapter!

Eschalon: Book I is an excellent beginning for an old school RPG adventure series, and is a promising debut effort from Basilisk Games. Anyone who enjoys a good adventure yarn with nostalgic sensibilities should find a lot to like about EB1.

A little rough around the edges, Eschalon: Book I is a great attempt at an “old school” role playing game that’s worth playing, and definitely worth the download time.

Anyone who is into RPG will enjoy the many hours it takes to play this fun game. You can’t go wrong with it so try playing Eschalon Book 1 and search for answers while experiencing action and adventure when you have a few hours to kill.

Eschalon: Book I tries to be everything to the hardcore traditional RPG fan, but problems with its character creation, story line, and movement keep it from appealing to everyone.

Und da ist sie wieder, die Frage: „Wer brauch heutzutage so ein Spiel?“ Natürlich all jene, welche mal wieder alte Rollenspielzeiten aufleben lassen wollen oder herausfinden möchten, wie sich das damals „angefühlt“ hat. Und auch jene, die mit Rollenspielen weder Onlinekämpfe, noch den „Final Fantasy"-Look verbinden. All diese Spieler finden im ersten Teil der Eschalon-Serie einen soliden und schön gestalteten Ableger jener bereits verloren gegangenen Spezies. Allerdings nur, sofern sie der englischen Sprache mächtig sind. Wer lieber mit der Zeit geht und auf Spielelemente wie einem guten Tutorial, einer ausgeklügelten Geschichte und einem ausgewogenen Gameplay wert legt, lässt die Hände davon und sucht seine Abenteuer in anderen Regionen.
