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

GameBanshee has posted a new review of Basilisk Games' recently released Eschalon: Book III. The final title in the old school fantasy RPG series gives players the chance to answer questions about four powerful gemstones and the clouded past of the protagonist.

The maps in Book III work really well.  Basilisk Games like Larian Studios has always been good about rewarding players for taking the time to explore carefully.  In Book III, Basilisk added 30 "secret areas" to the maps, and you gain experience points plus some other reward -- like a treasure chest, gold pieces, or even an attribute point -- for finding them.  As an example, when you start out the game in an inactive volcano, if you happen to notice and follow a narrow path in one corner of the map, then you find a chest with a skill book inside, which is a nice welcome gift.  In general, the maps are designed well, and they have a nice mix of flora and inside/outside elements to keep gameplay interesting.
