"Oldschool turn- and party-based dungeon crawler set in a huge underground world. Final part of the Second Avernum Trilogy, but can be played separately."

Just like its predecessors, this plot heavy game will scratch a hardcore RPG fan's itch. There are some minor complaints about this game, but if you have played the previous ones you will see some improvements. Sadly the visuals are still quite bad. Avernum 6 is a classic old school RPG for a select audience. Those looking for a quick RPG fix are probably better off looking elsewhere. Still, I can assure you that you will easily get your money's worth if you buy this game, especially now when the whole bundle cost 1,79€.

Maybe the best all around Avernum on steam (or at least until Avernum 2 and 3 show up in some form). If you've never played an Avernum it might be best to start with "Escape From the Pit," but Avernum 6 is probably a stronger game overall. Like EFTP it's very open world (although a few areas are closed off at the start), but it's biggest advantage is in its stat system, which uses the older skill based system that EFTP abandons in favor of a more simplistic skill tree model. Plus, unlike Avernums 4 and 5 (which had trouble justifying their existences plot wise), the writing is great, setting the game in a sprawling kingdom in decline and exploring some darker themes like drug addiction, famine, and terrorism.

A great end to the series.

I haven't beaten any spiderweb software game completely yet, I don't mind, they're all good, I think the new engine is great for understanding how the games work, I feel the older engines (before avadon), give you more freedom, but are harder to get into.

There is a lot of reading in these games, I am amazed by the quality of writing, if you like reading, a deep immersive story, play any of the spiderweb games, I suggest starting off with the newer engine (avadon and the new avernum remake).

Solid Single player experience. Each game can take up to 50 hours to play thru if you do everything.

The Avernum series is a great lineage of games by a little company. They're quite lengthy and tell a great tale of the course of several games. I started with the second one and went from there. There's a whole world to explore and the difficulty is pretty high, one wrong step into a tunnel and you'll become food for some unkown horror. There's magic, priesty heals, ranged stuff and of course good old melee combat. All the characters are very well defined and the lore is solid. Be warned though, if you don't like reading, this probably isn't for you. There's a lot of text. So that's just a matter of taste. If you don't want to play the super old ones but still want something like this without feeling left out of the story; go play Geneforge. Same company, same engine, different story. It's definatly a solid buy.

Avernum 6 is by far the best of the Avernum titles. And is a fun throwback to when games worried more about a good storyline and content over flashy graphics.

Dont expect much to look at... but if you can look beyond graphics you will find gripping gameplay and an excellent storyline that really immerses you into the game.

The battles are tactical and deadly, and strategy will win over simple brute force.

I find the game worth the small price of admission and would recommend it to any serious RPG gamer.

While it may not look amazing, this game turned out to be extremely fun and addicting. While it's decently complex with skills and all that, it doesn't take too long to catch on how to play. Plus, you don't need to have played any of the other Avernum games to play this one. It's extremely fun and I definitely recommend it to those who enjoy RPGs, and it's a big plus that you can make your character a lizard. ;D Plus there are other playable races as well!

If you enjoy RPG's in this style as much as I do, you will love this game. Of all the Avernum games (4-6) this one is the most playable. The graphics are retro-good, and the gameplay is turn based. 8/10!

An old-fashioned rpg. Simple and yet surprisingly good. For those who love the D&D game general but think that Baldur's Gate (for example) difficulty spoils the fun.
