This is an amazing old school RPG, with an atmosphere very reminiscent of Fallout. Combat is turn-based and very tactical: range, position and zones of control are important, as well as proper use of character abilities. The party composition will vary, the player will usually have the main character as well as two out of four NPCs in his party.

Additionally, this game is perfect for loot♥♥♥♥♥ players :P since there are no weight limits for the backpack. The weird isometric perspective takes about an hour to get used to, the controls are otherwise very intuitive.

The story is quite original, for a fantasy game, and the characters are well fleshed out. The game is fairly linear, but there are many choices and optional missions along the way, and the story does give you a choice during some important moments. I very much recommend this for anyone looking to play a classic and fun RPG

My recommendation comes with a caveat, I am only recommending this to people who enjoy turn-based cRPGs. I personally am not a fan of turn based combat, which is the reason I eventually gave up on finishing the game.

Visually and audibly, the game is nothing to write home about, being made by one person it is understanable and they are functional enough not to detract from the game in any major way.

Gameplay in my opinion is bland and uninspired, the turn based combat is quite slow and you are often faced with trash mobs that make the game stutter along at a slow pace. Later battles are frustratingly difficult, as you have to spend a long time clicking through the turns before you sometimes realise you haven't a hope of winning and have to reload. I eventually got sick of trying to beat a particular fight and called it quits.

Where the game shines is in its writing and story, I really enjoyed pouring over the descriptions of locations and the characterisation is pretty good in the people you meet. I find it a shame I couldn't bring myself to finish the game because I would have liked to know what happens.

So I will recommend this game to people who are into old school turn-based cRPGs, but if slow pacing and turn-based combat make you yawn you might want to check elsewhere.

It took me around 50 hours to play through this turn-based oldschool RPG made by Spiderweb Software. I bought it with 75% off, but I wouldn't recommend it. Only Linux users may find some value in this game. Windows users should pay GOG a visit and get some really classic RPGs. Why, you will ask. Let me explain:

The Good
The story about the Black Fortress that ensures peace in The Pact by bringing evils foes to justice really appealed to me. There are interesting characters, lots of background information and quickly I found myself playing for hours without even realising how much time went by. Thanks to unique boss fights, combat never gets too repeating. The skill trees are also easy to comprehend. Last but not least, the absence of question marks above NPCs to indicate aviable quests, whose destinations are not marked on the map, made the whole thing a bit more realistic. Just once or twice I wasn't 100% sure what to do, but in the end it became clear.

The Bad
Some fights are unbalanced and almost impossible to win. I played on "normal" difficulty, but I still had problems from time to time. You often get the feeling that the AI is cheating; they have so many more action points to spend every round, but your characters only manage to use one or two skills at most. Futhermore, skills that stun or immobilise your characters are in some cases so fatal that you can only watch your party die without being able to do anything. The dialoques with average NPCs never really matter; you can make them angry, so that they abort the conservation, but when you talk to them once more, everything's fine again. Only selected NPCs "listen" to what you have to say. Another major annoyance are the traders, whose inventory never replenishes. Bought all lockpicks? He/ she won't get new ones to sell...While playing you will end up with many locked doors that couldn't be opened. Some of them are even quest-related, which means you are not able to complete certain ones. Equipped items never change the appearence of the characters. So even if you gained the best gear you can possibly get, your party will always look like it just left Avadon for the first time.

Probably, there are even more things that ruin Avadon: The Black Fortress, but these were the ones that bugged me the most. However, it's not a bad game at all. It's just not for everyone and there are much better alternatives out there.

A very well-crafted game world. What the writing lacks in concision it makes up for in quality. The RPG gameplay is engaging, if not a bit OCD-inducing. My major gripe with the game would be the repetitive ambient sounds used in place of music, but that mostly comes my having previously played other Spiderweb Software games that also recycled these sounds. Still, though, the gameplay and player-influenceable story are more than enough to make the game worth playing on their own.

Edit: after reading some of the other reviews, I should mention that I'm playing on Casual (not ashamed to admit it), so I'm not really experiencing some of the difficulty-related complaints that others are. Pretty much the only difficulty-related thing I'm running into is that I don't really have a chance to use up my consumables fast enough on Casual, so I probably waste more time managing my inventory than I might on a harder difficulty. But that's very minor.

Spiderwb Software is know for their old-school RPGs, and rightfully so. Intersting NPCs, well thought out story, and a well designed world that feels alive. Character advancment is solid and reminds me of Diablo 2. The combat is turn based and fairly well balanced. If you get stuck, or find it too easy, you can adjust the difficulty in game. I'm at 40+ hours at the time of writing this and I think I'm (maybe) half way through, so there's plenty of content for your money. Oh.. and no random encounters to frustrate you when you just trying to get around. Once you clear out an area, it stays clear.

That said, the graphics can be hard on the eyes. Literaly. If your screen isn't huge and you turn the resolution all the way up. It makes the text tiny (and there's lots of text!). Moving around gets a little tedious at times when quests have you running back and forth. (There is quick travel, but it only goes so far.)

This game isn't for everyone, but fans of classic PC RPGs will enjoy the nostalgia. I know I did.

Easily one of the most entertaining RPG's I've played since Morrowind. Has a pretty solid lore that give way to a genuinly intersting storyline with well written characters.

If you like strategic isometric turnbased RPG's, and are willing to look past the kinda meh graphics, then you will absolutely love this game. A solid 8.5/10 from someone who doesn't rate things lightly.

NOTE: Push past the graphics, you can do it. it's ♥♥♥♥in worth it.

The game doesn't have great visuals nor any music ingame, but that isn't why I give a negative rating. It starts quite interesting and the design of the first 'dungeon' is really good. Levelling the first ten levels makes your character a lot stronger plus the story and characters get you interested in more. I'd say after around half of the game it falls apart. The levelling gets boring and the combat tedious as every enemy uses special abilities every round to increase the difficulty. This is just annoying and slows the game down to a halt. The locations are overly reused and the story rushes towards the grand finale without making much sense anymore.

Overall it's a not really bad turn based RPG, but it's simply not worth your time eventually. There are better RPGs out there and you should be playing them instead.

I do enjoy other Spiderware games. Just this one was Meh. Little to no actual unique customer creation. It feels like a bad mashup between turnbased strategy and diabloesque character skills, which simply left me completely underwhelemed. The skill tree is probably the most obnoxious part of the game, as it forces you to spend a massive number of points on skills your not interested in so you can put a couple points into the next Tier up.

This is absolutely one of the biggest disappointments I've ever had on Steam. Please - check my reviews, I'm no troll. In fact, this may be my first bad review. however - this game is a mess. It hangs up, saved games aren't reliable, the screen settings aren't reliable... read the forums. The most posted involve the game bugging and not continuing (in any of a number of ways/quests). What's sad ISN'T that a game has bugs (though for a coding as old as this, it almost is) but that NOTHING is done to alleviate them in the years its been out? This game is contuing to be sold - they rewrite it for Ipad - and it has the same quest lockups/resolution issues! I'm sorry to say it (because I've TRIED to like this game) but it's not worth it. Look elsewhere.

Finally beated it after 91h of addictive playing! Last boss was killed in 1,5h fight on EASIEST difficulty, so I recommend this hardcore RPG for all, who likes high skill turn-based games like Fallout Tactics, BG1/2, Icewind Dale etc.

As far as old school, Ultima-like RPG's go, this is one of the best. It's very heavy on the dialogue and lore - which, unfortunately, falls a bit short. The questing is ok and the character creation and design is interesting. I can't put my finger on why this isn't a very fun game, and maybe it's just that; I find it slow and boring.

5/10 - are you into playing RPG's like you did on your Windows 3.1 or your C64, there's a chance you'll enjoy this. I'll give it another try sometime.

This is truly a classic style, third person, turn based, roll playing game. It is reminisant if the SSI gold box series, similar to Buldar's Gate but not as emursive or has as much freedom in the games story. This game is not perfect but over all it has a very good story with some decision based lines and out comes. In order to complete some quests and parts of the story I did have to use a general game over view guide and codes easly found on the internet. I don't think it is posable to complete the game with out a basic guide or using some codes (even on normal) as the quest system is very simplistic and some of the fights are far too hard(not unlike some of the calssic games). Qusets do not up date on every step so it is sometimes hard to know exactly where to go and what to do. There was an excessive amount of dialog to read in the game. It was great that i could control up to three cahricters at a time even though only one was rolled by me. Over all a good game. If you like turn based RPG's and classic RPG's you should check this game out!

Classic gameplay style and retro feel takes me back to the RPGs of years back.
Engrossing story and the potential for hours of adventure, this is one of the games that "retro" designers should use as inspiration.
