Avadon: The Black Fortress Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Zeboyd Games recently posted a new review of Spiderweb Software's latest RPG, Avadon: The Black Fortress. The first chapter of a new saga, the game puts players in the role of a spy and warrior tasked to defend the homeland from its many enemies. The game features four different character classes, dozens of sidequests, hundreds of items to discover, and many different possible endings.

From the review:

Avadon takes an hour to get going but once it does, itís an engaging game. The setting is generic D&D fantasy (albeit with you working for the morally ambiguous fantasy equivalent of the UN) but the world is well crafted, the characters have personality, the individual scenarios are interesting, and the writing is solid. I especially enjoyed how the game gives out different dialogue depending on who is in your party. It strikes a happy medium between linear (the main plot) and non-linear (plenty of optional quests and dungeons to explore). The LV-Up system isnít too complex (each level you get 1 stat point and 2 skill points and occasionally you get a specialization point) but itís fun and lets the player customize their characterís stats & abilities nicely. Combat is turn-based on a grid and has depth without sacrificing pacing. Oh and thereís ton of loot along with tons of equipment slots to equip said loot on.
