Avernum 4 is a simple looking, old-school style RPG title that doesn’t try to dazzle you with anything fancy. It’s basically a dungeon hacker title, but has a decent story, some twists, and a lot of elements that make this game fun even without all the flash that games nowadays have. If you enjoy RPG gaming in an older style setting you might want to check this one.

While now, itself considered old, Avernum shows indie ingenuity, technology and ideas of its time being applied as an old-meets-new factor to Isometric, turn-based RPGs before its time. The world-map movement and near-seamless switch to turn-based combat mode is satisfying without taking me out of one map or singular-world feel. The world is huge and fun to explore in a movement mode that acts like real-time, but does all the individual move-calculations behind the scenes. When in combat I can then seamlessly take control of each character, playing my turn-based combat.

The dialog and story are great, the world feels non-linear, and combat is fun. I recommend this game to anyone who wants their RPG itch scratched, but fans of almost any RPG variant may also love Avernum, especially turn-based-combat fans.

I had a ton of fun playing this game. It's a party-based RPG and it's really enjoyable. The world is pretty huge as well. Should provide tens of hours on fun. 8/10

Honestly I didnt expect anything from this one. But it looks like one of the best RPG's ive tried. Don't be misled by the 2d graphics and give it a try.

Great game! Very old school; it really took me back. I was really surprised of how long the game actually was, you should definitely try it out ! Can't wait to start the second game of the trilogy.
