10 year old game and still awesome as ever.
Avernum 4 is old school rpg hard, but at the same time rewarding. If you like turn action rpg where you need to use your head this will be perfect for you.
Choose 4 characters (races are human, Slith or Nephilim), hand full of classes or custom class.
Stats, there are 4 groups of stats. Pretty normal stats, easy to understand and well explained.
And then the are character traits what gives you something good but lovers your xp gain or gives something bad, but gives back more xp gain. You can make hard choices like if you want your archer to hit almost every time you can take it but you get -20% xp gain from kills so you can balance this by taking a bad trait like fragile bones you take more damage from melee weapons and so on.
+Interesting story and world.
+Conversation with ai characters are done very well.
+Game likes to tell you a lott with words, like what some places feels and sounds like and this can give better idea where you are heading or what you are facing, but if you do not like to read much you can always skip them.
+Game can be very hard and frustrating at least on the harder difficult, but i like when there is some challenge.
-Fighting in small rooms can be annoying, because the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ door is in your way when you are moving your units to better position near the door. luckily there are not so many fights in small rooms.
-And magic feels pretty overpowered and archery is useles as ♥♥♥♥.
