Anmeldelser

“Klassisk rollespill-opplevelse med en absorberende historie. Byr på timevis med underholdning.”
4/5 – Mac|Life

“Så simplistisk som spillet kan fremstå er det veldig fort gjort å sitte seg ned for å spille i noen få minutter, for senere å oppdage at hele natten har gått med.”
– Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Når alt kommer til alt, har Avadon: The Black Fortress alt et godt rollespill trenger. Sterk historie og karakterer, bra kampsystem, utmerkede oppdrag, avhengighetsskapende gjenstander og nivåklatring, og høyt potensiale for gjenspill.”
– Inside Mac Games

“Jeg vil ha et oppslukende spill fra en utvikler med integritet og et ønske om å vinne over fans én om gangen. Det har Spiderweb, og jeg håper de fortsetter å gi oss spill som dette.”
5/5 – Adrenaline Vault

“Dette er et stort og mektig spill som fans av retro rollespill kommer til å elske.”
4.5/5 – Digitally Downloaded

“Alle som lengter tilbake til de gode gamle dagene med massive klassikere, og som misliker de nye, strømlinjeformede rollespillene med store budsjetter, bør gjøre ord til handling og kjøpe dette spillet.”

Avadon was my first foray into the crazy world of game designer Jeff Vogel, and boy is it a treat. I sincerely can't remember when was the last good turn-based RPG released, but the Avadon games are certainly refreshing the genre.

Great story, lots of interesting dialogue and a lot of great lore are the name of the game with Avadon.

The story, while underwhelming at first, picks up after you complete your first mission in the lands of the Kva, and the fun doesn't stop until the end, all accompanied with epic, strategic battles that really have you figuring out a puzzle than simply rushing ahead if you play at a nice pace of difficulty. Most of the side missions all add a lot of life to the world and really make you want to play them and forget the main quest...most of the time.

Combat is simplistic at its core. yet very subtle in how it chooses to show its difficulty. You pick from your team two members for each mission to assist, and they all have their unique and very intriguing differences that force you to take your time in choosing them before each mission. You all take turns to move and attack, and all the different patterns for each battle is pretty unique and makes for interesting battles every time you think about reloading!

The graphics, while simple in nature, are all very well done, and fit well with the overall theme and are nothing to scoff at for any hardcore tbRPG gamer.

I can't recommend it enough for people who miss Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, and similar games.

Short version: a role-playing game where you control a band of adventurers on their way to fame and glory. 5/5

Long version: Avadon: The Black Fortress is a role-playing game that acts as a spiritual successor to the honorable company Spiderwebsoftware's earlier productions of Geneforge- and Avernum-series. You choose a character for yourself, and soon enough will start to build a band of like-minded individuals to go out on quests together.

The gameplay itself is isometric, and very fluid. The graphics, however, are not what makes this game -- it has never been so with Spiderwebsoftware. The real deal here is the plot, the story, the characters, and the (ironic) humour that you keep running to from time to time.

The skill-system and leveling is also very interesting. Unlike in most games that include classes like warrior, rogue and wizard: the warrior-class isn't left up to just pure hack 'n slash. Every class has their own special skills and abilities that they can use in combat (and a few skills that can be used out of combat, such as picking locks). It is very much a thinking man's game.

The one critical thing that is left to say is that this game is sometimes very strict in how it handles quest-advancement; it is very much a necessity to read the quest descriptions and not simply run from place to place mindlessly. (Fortunately if you get stuck you can go to Spiderwebsoftware's webpages and look up the official forums, there are a lot of thorough FAQs and helpful people willing to answer your questions.) All in all the game is very inspiring and unique, with every map and town hand-crafted by none other than Jeff Vogel himself.

5/5, a must buy if you're into isometric RPGs, with a compelling storyline and good combat system.

An old-school dungeon-crawling RPG focusing on immersive reading and imagination. Don't go to it if you are looking for visual and auditory stimulations or deep character development both in mechanics and narrative, this is not a good game on those. However, it just provides a nice stage for your bold adventure, a medicore curve of settings for your (pre-defined) party to progress within. You, as a part-freelancer and order-enforcer at the same time, are not caught in a web of diplometic conspiracy, but instead trapped in compromised world full of conflicts, under the table.

I would recommend this to people who don't mind simple and straight gameplay/content that is not procedurally generated, if exploration is what you really care. As an story-driven RPG, softcore and streamline, all you need to enjoy the game is to ignore the poor presentation of gfx/snd, and to get yourself immersed in, of course.

Read before Act, you fool.

---
Pros:
narrative
cool background
active journal record
no dialog maze
companion interaction in dialog
tons of garbage for your collection
satisfying loot

Cons:
need more character creation options for diversity
need bigger chars and better animations
lacking of freedom of behavior
not-so-good gameplay balance
poor quest log updating
somewhat clumsy interface
NO background music

I played this game for a very long time. Looking back, I'm not totally sure why I continued to play. I don't remember playing the game with fondness; instead, I remember repetitive, lifeless turn-based gameplay. Maybe it was just that the amount of games available for Linux at the time was quite limited, and I needed something to pass the time. Anyway ...

Of particular note, I think, is the moment I stopped playing this game. I'm going to try to talk about that moment with some abstraction, such that it doesn't spoil anything about the game. In (what I believe is) the last fight in the game, a new dynamic is introduced that none of the other fights in the game even came close to touching upon. This would have been fine if other fights in the game had other, interesting dynamics, but combat in this game is largely a static affair. So, when I went into this fight, I expected the fight to follow the same formula as every single other fight in the game. After a few attempts, I figured out what was going on, and realized that the dynamic that was being used made it nearly impossible to win the fight using my max-level characters.

I never played the game again.

2/10.

Boring and soulless cRPG. Even if you like other of Vogel's series (Geneforge and Avernum) you should pass on this game, because it falls short in comparison. If you don't like other Vogel's series, then you'd rather enjoy hitting your balls more than playing Avadon. Annoying combat and interface, huge and empty world, boring dialogues and story. The setting is another fantasy, so I won't even mention how banal and unremarkable it is. Even if you get this game for free, it's not worth your time.
