Inside Mac Games has posted new reviews of Eschalon: Book I and Book II, Basilisk Games' fantasy RPG titles inspired by classics of the genre. The recently released Book II continues the story of the original with the inclusion of improvements like re-rendered tiles, new weather effects, new skills, new monsters, and a larger world to explore.

Here's an excerpt from the Eschalon Book II review:

There aren't too many RPGs released with a turn-based battle system these days. With the current trend of action games with RPG elements continuing to blossom, they're slowly becoming a dying breed. Still, there's an inherent appeal to being able to spend minutes contemplating your next move, and it's nice to see games being released into this shrinking genre. Eschalon: Book II (EB2), a recent release from Basilisk Games, fills the void quite nicely.

Eschalon: Book II is a turn-based RPG from the Rogue sub-genre of RPGs. The world is set in a static time until you move, at which point everything else in the world moves with you. All combat is calculated off your character's stats using a percentage chance for you to hit and then a quick dice roll to determine damage if you hit. This is truly a classic-style RPG, and it's one of the best looking ones you'll find.
