Avernum 4 Reviewed
7:37 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

PC Gamezone has posted a review of Spiderweb Software's Avernum 4, the latest in the Exile/Avernum RPG series. The game returns players to the underground empire of Avernum which is under siege by evil forces. Featuring a large world and a dragon's hoard of side quests, Avernum 4 managed a score of 7.4 out of 10 from Gamezone.

From the review:

Controls to Avernum 4 are simple to figure out and run with quickly right from the get go. Left clicking with the mouse moves your characters in a line formation wherever you want them to go, and clicking on an enemy will change your cursor to a fist to represent that you can attack. Now, for those of you who are worried about changing up formations and are worrying about keeping your mage in the back, etc … fret not. When combat occurs, everything moves in a turn-based sequence (based on action points to move, attack, cast spells, etc.) which allows you to move your party members wherever and however you’d like them based on your own personal strategy. The developers also made sure to include tabs to cover just about everything you’ll need, like a map, journal, inventories, spell tab, and a default button to help characters switch quickly between melee and missile weapons on the fly.
