Inside Mac Games has posted 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.strategy title.

Here's an excerpt:

You'll likely find much the same success, if you tend to follow the standard party of two warriors, a priest, and a wizard. With the spearman tanking and the swordsman dual-wielding, you can almost leave things to them and hang your magicians back to buff and heal. On the rare occasions you face a monster that is resistant to physical damage, a hasted wizard and priest can do tremendous damage while your warriors block. For more challenge, the hardest party appears to be a non-magic party. With the limited options available for buffing and healing, that party will tend to become decimated by anything significantly magical. The first time your main dual-wielder is charmed, for example, you will forever curse your lack of a priest.
