Avernum: Escape From The Pit Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Appletell has published a new review of Spiderweb Software's Avernum: Escape From the Pit. The game is a "ground-up rewrite of Avernum" which includes a new engine and new graphics. As in the original, Avernum: Escape From the Pit follows the adventures of individuals exiled to a mysterous underground realm. Appletell gave the game a score of 5 out of 5.

From the review:

The first thing you do after starting a new game is make up to four characters by either using the party thatís already made for you or making your own. The only choices you can make are name, appearance, and class (which determines what skills the characters have at the start of the game). While you will have many ways to customize each character as you play, you arenít given a lot of choices at the beginning.

This is a good thing, as having to decide what your characters should be good at before you play is kind of like ordering dessert before the appetizers have arrived. Having to know about the game before you can play the game so you donít make mistakes making your characters is rather silly, and itís good that you just pick the general class type and start playing.
