Eschalon: Book II Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gaming Irresponsibly 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. Gaming Irresponsibly gave the game a score of 8.5 out of 10.

From the review:

Let’s take a look at what the gameplay actually has to offer. Working off of their success with Eschalon: Book 1, the developers give you a lot of what made the original title so successful. The world you explore is mapped to a tile-based grid, where every square of the grid operates independently of the other. Consequently, these squares will yield different rolls for your character depending on your movement. This was certainly an unexpected layer of depth to encounter, as it makes it more difficult for the player to play the game simply for the action component available. Let me tell you, this game is hard. That’s why it’s very important for you to customize your character appropriately—otherwise you will be unable to slay the plethora of monsters that face you in the game’s numerous dungeons. I had to recreate my character at least three times before I got a working model that could actually show some progress. For some this might be a turn-off, but the game gives you difficulties to choose from so don’t be too discouraged.
