Nethergate: Resurrection Reviewed

Applelinks has conjured up a new review of Spiderweb Software's Nethergate: Resurrection. The updated recreation of the original Nethergate RPG, Resurrection allows players to take the side of either Romans or Celts in a battle for control of the mystical Shadowvale. Applelinks gave N:R a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

One of the main weaknesses in most computer role-playing games is that you actually have very little control over your characters and where you can go and what you can do. You're led from one town to the next, and you can't really explore since all of the encounters are scripted to take place in a certain order. Nethergate: Resurrection is the complete opposite; almost from the beginning, you can go anywhere in the game you want.

Just be sure to save early and often! There's no sign out front saying "For levels 10 and up only," so usually finding out that the den of spiders was too tough happened when my party died. So, I'd reload, mark the location mentally as one to return to when I was tougher and wiser, and move on to somewhere else.

While there is a main story and main quests that you have to do to drive the story forward, there are a lot of side quests and locations to find and explore that don't have anything to do with the main story and can be completed in any order. The rewards from these quests are excellent and add to the environment and story of Shadowvale. However, they can be skipped entirely, and if you don't find them, you won't be penalized.
