Overall this game is an immense joy to play if you’re a huge fan of Classic PC RPG’s like Baldurs Gate and Planescape Torment like I am. This game has everything any Classic RPG Fan would love: an incredibly involving storyline, very well written dialogue and an immense world to explore. It’s a great adventure that’s worth at least one play through or maybe even more with the multiple endings available.

Overall, Avernum: Escape From the Pit is a solid RPG experience that combines classic style, a compelling story, and generous content to create an indie game that is very much worth your time. If you're looking for a complex single player RPG and value content at the expense of visuals, don't miss this title.
Overall, Avernum - Esacpe From the Pit is a great game if you're looking for a simple, addicting, classic RPG experience for a reasonable price, and I whole heartily enjoyed it. It may be over before you know it, until you realize that Escape From the Pit is only the first of a series of six. If you loved Ultima or even fancy tactical RPGs, this game won't disappoint.
