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

Mishmash Magazine has published a new review of Basilisk Games' latest release, Eschalon: Book II. The RPG sequel includes improvements like re-rendered tiles, new weather effects, new skills, new monsters, and a larger world to explore. Mish Mash gave the game a score of 9 out of 10.

From the review:

Another element of Eschalon: Book II that I found truly impressive was the writing. This game not only has a good story, it also has very well-written dialogue, and detailed, textual descriptions that accompany everything. If you right-click a weapon or potion, you get a sentence or two telling you what it is. If you eat something, you get a sentence telling you what it tastes like. And when you talk to someone, you get a brief description of what they're doing, how they appear at that moment and anything else that might be relevant, or that simply adds to your immersion.

This made for a really engaging experience that brought my imagination into play in ways I seldom see in modern video games.
