Extremely enjoyable - The story is engaging, and the pacing is fabulous. I feel like my characters are advancing but the enemies are also getting steadily tougher. No section has seemed like a dull, repetitive cakewalk or slashfest. I also appreciate that the selection of items, weapons and spells has some diversity but does not seem overwhelmingly complex. It keeps my thoughts focused on the plot and action rather than assessing 90 sword options.

Review by Kuo-Chih Lo

not well desgned Game - This Games has several strenthes such as good objects, bright background, quick movement of the charactors big screen of whole entire enviroment. Some RPG don't have those strengthes, but the problem is the games is the story line has too much restriction. The world become like no-freedom. It's still a good games if you like to always follow the story line.

Review by JimRPh

Simplistic, slow, and no help in a pinch - Simplistic game, even compared to very old Ultima titles. Never really felt excited or deeply interested. Quit at mines where Wretches were hiding out when both paths into the mines were blocked by gates and I couldn't find any hints online to get me started again. It seems when I moved my computer up to a Mac from a PC, almost everything improved but the games. Mac games are pitiful. I really can't recommend spending the money on this one.

Review by craigminah

Great game so far - I used to play all the old RPGs (e.g. Telengard, Sword of Fargoal, Bards Tale, Ultima 1-4, etc.) and wanted a game in that genre so I looked at what was available. Avadon seemed like the best fit and it received great reviews on game rating sites so I thought I'd give it a shot. Bottom line, THIS GAME ROCKS. Great gameplay, low system requirements, interesting storyline, and lots of stuff to do. Should keep me busy for quite some time and I hope there are sequels to this storyline.
