Summary

Not a bad way to spend several hours.

The Good

  • Lengthy dungeon crawl, lots of combat encounters
  • Decent game mechanics, turn-based combat
  • Best balance of the second Avernum Trilogy
  • Decent writing (what there is of it...)

The Bad

  • Dated but functional graphics
  • Not as many tactical options as there could be
  • Small party size of four characters
  • Individual combat encounters aren't exactly epic
  • If you've played the previous Avernums you'll feel you've seen it all before...
  • Light on story

The Bottom Line

The game is definitely worth playing, especially since you can get all three games in the second Avernum trilogy in a bundle for a good price. It's possible the game places too much emphasis on dungeon crawling and not enough on plot and character interaction, but it's not a big deal.
