Game Zone: Avernum 5 Review
areas/towns and discover that the good people of the underground kingdom could sure use a hero to help out with the problems that plague the locals. There is an absolute ton of sub missions and side quests to find and complete in your overall quest and during those adventures some new abilities can be discovered as well as more powerful weapons. I can't say that the game really came up with anything that I haven't played a 100 times before, but I will give credit for a bit better of a realized plot. There is no arguing that the graphics on this game are waaaaaayyyy old and the game could probably be played on that computer you put up in the attic six years ago. So in that sense, while the game doesn't suffer from the dated graphics, I believe most players will be turned off by the appearance and visuals the game has.
The same could be said of the audio, another thing that must have not been in the budget. I understand that this is the fifth in the series, but the game could have benefited from a stronger sounding score and tough sound effects. During the play, you will do plenty of reading to help move the plot along and a familiar set of icons grace the edge of the game screen allowing you to fire off commands and access inventory relatively pain free.
