I love adventure RPGs. I have spent well over fifty hours on this game, offline, and have not yet gotten tired with it. I highly recommend this game if you are interested in medieval fantasy RPGs.

If you've played a SpiderWebSoftware game, you know what you're getting into.
If you have not played a SpiderWebSoftware(SWS) game, they're often hit or miss on a person by person basis. Tons of Text, no voice acting, retro-ish graphics are all not very appealing in this day and age. But it (and all SWS games) have a fantastic story, fun, engaging rpg gameplay, and lots of loot.
If you really don't know whether you want Avadon 2 or another SWS game or not, you can just head over to their website SpiderWebSoftware.com and get a free Demo version for pretty much every single game they've ever made. The guys at SWS are awesome and highly recommend checking out all of their games.

Interesting game, I didn't play the original but this one was enough to keep me engaged for a while. Ultimately it moves too slowly for my liking, each area is large enough but contains basically the same elements as areas before and after. Nothing new in the gameplay department, I would prefer to read a book about this story as opposed to playing it.

Recommended as a timesink only. Which puts it as a "No" in the overall scheme.

If you haven't played the first Avadon game you should play that before getting this, as the story is essentially a continuation of the story of that game (though with new main characters), and the game play is very similar, without significant changes to the engine. If you played and enjoyed the first Avadon game, you will like this one as well, as it is more of the same. If you played and didn't like the first Avadon game, don't bother with this one because, well, it's just more of the same.

So what are the Avadon games? They are old-school, turn-based RPGs. Lots of talking to NPCs. Lots of fighting. You get to build a party of 3 people out of 5 classes. You get some choices and branching skill paths for each character. You collect loot. You beat monsters. You learn about the world and what its story is. In the end you have some different possible endings based on the choices you made during the game, but the endings aren't all that different from each other, so I wouldn't call this a top selling point.

Basically, the Avadon games are solid and very enjoyable, budget price CRPGs that are made by and for people who like old school CRPGs. If you are one of those people and you aren't turned off by the low production values (though the art is fine and is well enough done for its style, IMO), you're going to like this game. If you aren't one of those people, well, this series probably won't win you over as it doesn't do anything terribly different or new or genre shattering.

I have nearly 500 games in my Steam account, and the vast majority of them are still unplayed. So now I'm dedicating an hour to each of these games and writing a series of One Hour Reviews. An hour isn't very long to judge a game on, so think of this as more of a first impression, and take this review in the spirit in which it's given. Be sure to read other reviews from players who have spent more time in the game.

One Hour Reviews - Game 14
Avadon: 2: The Corruption
Purchase Date: 6/17/2015

I just picked this game up in the latest Steam Summer Sale for half off. Normally I wouldn't buy a game before playing the original, but this game is from Spiderweb Software, and if you have ever played any of their games, you already know what to expect. I can see how that might sound bad. After all, I often see complaints about how the latest annual edition of some game has barely changed from last year.

But I wouldn't go so far as to say that Spiderweb's games are cookie-cutter. It's just that each of their games are inspired by old school role playing games like Ultima. They look to recreate this kind of experience, but with some elements that you would expect to see in more modern games that make their games accessible.

If reading lots of text sounds boring, this game isn't for you. If you are looking for a game with cut-scenes and lots of voice acting, this game isn't for you. If you don't find moving around on a grid in turn-based combat to be fun, then this game also isn't for you.

I played and reviewed the first Avadon right before this one, so that I could compare the 2 games and give an idea of what's different.

The first Avadon offered a choice of 4 classes, which I compared to the basic archetypes of a Fighter, Wizard, Thief, and Priest. Avadon 2 adds a fifth class, the Tinkermage, which as the name implies is kind of a tinkerer type class with some thieving abilities mixed in. I picked this class for my playthrough.

One small difference I appreciated from the first Avadon is that now you can choose if your character is male or female for each of the classes. In the first Avadon, your gender was based on which class you picked. There still isn't much in the way of any character customization. The character looks are predetermined based on your selection of class and gender.

The interface looks exactly the same as it did in the first Avadon. A minimap is displayed in the top right corner. The map can be hidden, or hitting Tab will display a larger version of the map. Character portraits are at the top left. A series of icons can be found along the bottom, with static icons on the left for common actions, and icons to the right for assigning hotkeys. It's a familar looking interface, not just from being the same as the original Avadon, but from many other RPGs as well. Don't expect to be able to move UI elements around though; everything is statically placed.

Like with the first Avadon, the game starts you out in a tutorial mode of sorts, with prompts to give directions on how to move around and do basic things. Also like the first game, I quickly found myself in my first combat. The combat early on is super easy and is really designed to explain the basics of combat, and introduce you to using abilities.

I mentioned I picked the Tinkermage class. I started out with 2 abilities. One let me place turrets that would shoot at enemies, and the other ability basically acted as a heal for any turrets I had already placed. Abilities come with a cooldown timer, meaning that once an ability has been used, it can't be reused for a number of turns afterward. This kept me from peppering the field with turrets, which understandably would be a bit unbalancing.

Something I neglected to mention in my last review is that you do have a party in Avadon. Both Avadon and Avadon 2 will quickly introduce a second character to your party. Sometimes these characters will be computer controlled, but most of the time you are directing the actions of everyone in your party.

Obviously I can't really judge a game's story based on a one hour review. But I will say I enjoyed the opening of Avadon 2 more than the original. The first game starts out in the fortress of Avadon and my first quest had me killing rodents in a dungeon, which is pretty standard way to open a game. Avadon 2 by contrast had my character running for his life to try and get back to his keep to report an invading force. It made for a more exciting opening.

As I mentioned with the first Avadon, this game isn't for everyone, but I appreciate that these kinds of games still get made, and I will happily continue to recommend them.

The Game in short:
Old school "crpg" gameplay & aesthetics.
Fantastic writing and a story you _will_ get drawn into (eventually - see extended comments below).
Squad-based tactical combat and customizable characters.
Enjoyable loot hoarding.
Insanely good value (at time of writing I have 63 hours on one play through - not bad for $10).


EXTENDED COMMENTS
As others have said, this game is graphically moribund. If you've played other Spiderweb games you already know this (and you are already familiar with most of the sprites and textures). **However** the graphics really don't matter; after a while the graphics will look better and better because this game _will_ engage your imagination as you personally construct the world Avadon presents (this is probably an effect of all the reading you will do - think of how personal and vivid the reality of your favorite book was at the time of reading).

The writing is great - I haven't been a reader of high-fantasy fiction in decades, but I have still thoroughly enjoyed the story so far. I believe this is because in this game, your decisions, well, erm... might matter? This is a key point: while other games claim to have 'decisions that matter' simply because player-decisions have some visible and immediate affect on the world, in Avadon 2 you are often forced into difficult decisions and then given no clear indication of what effect (if any) they had. This isn't to say that nothing happens- NPC's will mention your prior decisions and give you the impression that certain things may yet come to pass because of them, but you are left wondering until such outcomes do (or don't) occurr.

With all the above said, I will admit that it took a while for me to get drawn into the game world. In the beginning, it appeared simple and I took it at face value - I was probably 30 hours in before I began to realize that the world of Avadon is truly constructed of shades-of-grey (and perhaps, like a good book, is constructed to allow the viewer/gamer to reflect upon their own world, should they so choose). For anyone not interested in contemplating the morally-ambiguous complexity of safety-vs-freedom and power-vs-control the story may remain simple.

Combat is tactical and (mostly) squad-based. You will usually control 3 characters in a turn-based battle system that can have difficulty adjusted to suit your individual taste (I kept things at 'normal' and found combat satisfying, if not overly difficult).

The game world is a scattering of regions, each containing 5-8 maps or so. Regions are all connected to Avadon, which serves as the primary hub and base for missions. Side-quests galore exist (I've been trying to do them all, which is probably how my hour count got so high).

Prior experience with Avadon (or other Spiderweb games) is totally unnecessary. I own Avadon 1, but have never played it. My only other Spiderweb experience came from playing through the majority of Avernum: Escape from the Pit on an iPad (though I never did finish that one).

My only real complaint about Avadon 2 is the lack of UI-control customization. I would love nothing more than to be able to toggle Windows open and shut with the same key. Additionally, I'd love to be able to stop accidental touch-pad clicks from closing important dialogue windows (I've several times now missed out on reading some vital piece of conversation because I accidentally shut the conversation window and the game offers no way to undo such actions).

In summary - the game is fun, cheap, and surprisingly engaging on various cognitive levels. I recommend this to anyone, but particularly to smart 30-something gamer dads like myself.

These games are pretty much all the same now. If you played the first one, or a spiderweb software game from 10 years ago, then you're not in for anything new.
The classes are the same pretty much, the graphics are the same, the story is the same, the spells and equipment are the same. It is also, dare I say, overlong for a game which offers so little variety in terms of basic gameplay...
Just run around from one place to the other for hours, fight some badly drawn and badly balanced little fight, which by the later levels you will just finish with one or two massive area spells anyway...
The experience was very anticlimactic and if the story is not top notch, which it isn't, then you're not in for a treat

A fun turn-based rpg game with a good story to suck you in. Yes the graphics are bad but the hours you can put in is worth it from leveling up, killing ogres/people/etc, and completing quests. Its got a classic feel to it. Luckily for me I'm into these type of games.

What can I say? I grew up on SSI goldbox AD&D games. Everything by Spiderweb reminds me of those halcyon days. While I didn't like #2 as much as the first one, it has it's charms.

Another solid Spiderweb Software game. As the Geneforge and Avernum series were similar to each other, this game is very much like the first Avadon. Some tweaks were made to some abilities and items, but for the most part it's a straight continuation of the first. Not a lot to say aside from if you liked the first one you'll probably like this one too.

Also, the save files on this actually sync with the Steam Cloud, so you can install and play the same save across multiple computers!

This is a borderline decision. The game has great things going for it, that you can read about in other reviews. Quite graphics - not due to their lack of beauty (which they lack) but due to the lack of functionality - playin on a 2560x1440 is pretty hard - really small chars and text.

The main killing point is interface functionality - inventory management is painful.

I missed a soundtrack for the gameplay. The music from the menu is great, I was expecting to hear something of the same level during the game.

I didn't played too far but the gameplay is good and the graphics too.

My only complaint is about the lack of gameplay BGM.
