8-9 / 10

This is a great rpg and great series, if you enjoy turn based RPG give this a try its alot of fun

CONS: Game mechanics promote not using your levelup points until after you've bought skills, not a fan of power game favoritism, if you don't mind this aspect its easily a 9 rating

My reviews are always based on the following
-I only play hard or impossible
-I don't save/load scum, live with mistakes
-I don't use 3rd party cheat tools
-I don't play multiplayer and am reviewing singleplayer aspects unless otherwise noted

“The toughest enemy in this game? Well, try to break a door secured with a masterful adamantium lock.”

Eschalon: Book 2 is a well-made turn-based RPG experience with great love for detail. Compared with its predecessor the combat mechanics were improved by adding a couple tactical options and increasing the general game speed. In addition the game difficulty can be adjusted to satisfy the needs of the hardcore gamers among us.

My rating system consists of six categories in descending order of importance:

- Atmosphere
- Characters
- Details
- Tactical demand
- Story
- Combat & Controls

Based on the performance each category will receive one of the following grading:

- S-Rank: excellent
- A-Rank: very good
- B-Rank: solid
- C-Rank: satisfactory
- D-Rank: inferior

If the S-Rank is awarded, a quote from the game or personal comment will be added as a token of my respect (in brackets).

Atmosphere: A-Rank

Characters: A-Rank

Details: S-Rank

(This is easily one of the heaviest, and thickest books you have ever seen. From its size and heft, you surmise that it could easily serve as the anchor to a large ship, or perhaps as the cornerstone of a castle. The cover could likely take a blow from an axe and survive, and even the pages seem unnaturally thick and sturdy. It is a book that could last the toughest of ages; from the numerous adorning bloodstains, it has certainly seen a fair amount of use…)

Tactical demand: B-Rank

Story: B-Rank

Combat & Controls: A-Rank

There are no achievements to conquer.

No. Just no. They didn't fix anything, they just put out a carbon copy of the first game. Nope.
