Eschalon: Book II Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Brash Games has published a new review of Basilisk Games' Eschalon: Book II. The RPG sequel includes improvements like re-rendered tiles, new weather effects, new skills, new monsters, and a larger world to explore. Brash Games gave the game a score of 8 out of 10.

From the review:

The graphics are an isometric view point and although they won't win any awards for their technicality, they serve the purpose of the game and keep the feel of the story adequately enough. Sound and music are really good and fit the fantasy bill with impressive flair. Standing in the middle of the forest, for example, your speakers will assault your ears with bird-song and wind rustling through the leaves, as will the bitter chill wind, whipping about your under garments in the frozen wastes, enough to make you cold just thinking about it. The gameplay works well, but it can become a bit boring after the umpteenth battle with a rat. I suppose, without tarring the brush with anyone in particular, Eschalon will appeal to those who loved the classic RPG's of yesteryear.
