Avernum 5 while rich in plot and story seriously lacks in visuals and sound. This game certainly ought to please hardcore RPG players and veterans with a sense of nostalgia, however there's nothing here that you haven't seen many times before in countless games.I would really like to see the folks at Spiderweb software be given a big budget and let loose. Otherwise their games will continue to be mediocre like Avernum 5. I'd give it a 6/10.
