"Some long missed old school mechanics made it into this great isometric CRPG: Weather affects you, you have to drink & eat and weapons are degrading."

I Ragazzi di Basilisk Games non si sono dovuti sforzare molto per creare la trama di questo secondo episodio della serie Eschalon visto che in pratica è la stessa del primo: Un uomo dalla vita apparentemente tranquilla scopre di avere un altra identità dimenticata grazie ad un incantesimo e si trova coinvolto nella disperata ricerca di un manufatto che può salvare il Regno dall'annientamento.
Ma la trama non e' l'unica similitudine col primo episodio: Infatti neppure il gameplay e' cambiato di un millimetro, rimanendo ben saldo su i canoni dei buoni vecchi giochi di ruolo di una volta come Ultima e Divine Divinity (in particolare chi ha giocato a quest'ultimo avara' una forte sensazione di deja'vu giocando a i vari Eschalon) .
Poca fantasia a parte questo titolo e' comunque validissimo, specie se vi piace passare ore ed ore ad esplorare il vasto mondo di gioco (cosa che nel caso di Eschalon regala numerose sorprese) e siete abituati a giocare senza il minimo aiuto.

“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.

Fun fact: Like the first game, the game's development was largely kept secret; the developers of the Eschalon series believe that most game developers release too much information about their products, spoiling the game when you eventually play it.

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

- Atmosphere
- Characters
- Details
- Tactical gameplay
- 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 gameplay: B-Rank

Story: B-Rank

Combat & Controls: A-Rank

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

Eschalon: Book 2 is a sequel to Book 1 and therefore similar in everything it does. There are minor improvements, like faster walking, higher resolution, more skills... but nothing of great importance. Eschalon is a turn-based role-playing game series with astounding graphics and sound. Unfortunately gameplay is a bit slow, even for an ultima-like game. Doing almost anything in this game is fun but one thing: Walking. And there's a lot of walking. Walking through forests, walking through beaches, walking through deserts... and even more walking. The game has interesting dungeons and towns, filled with many secrets and details, unfortunately other locations are there just to be walked through. That is why I would rate this game as decent: It's a very enjoyable RPG, except for tedious walking through wilderness.

Recensione di una copia anticipata
Really good remake of ye olde classic RPG: build your character with traits and stats, kill stuff, gear up. Awesome story, gamewriting, and it's really hard. Buy it dood.
