À propos de ce jeu

Eschalon: Book III brings the trilogy to a climactic end as you seek to uncover the mystery of your past, the secrets of the Crux stones, and who the Orakur really are. You’ll traverse miles of virtual wilderness and dungeons, filled with secrets and danger, in an unparalleled role-playing experience designed to feel like a true pen-and-paper RPG.

  • The end of a saga! The final Book in the Eschalon Trilogy brings the story to an epic conclusion and all your questions will be answered. Of course, we've made sure Book III can be fully enjoyed even if you've never played the previous games.

  • Dozens of fan-requested features and updates to the engine and rule set.

  • Hundreds of graphic updates including re-rendered tiles, new spell effects, and enhanced environment effects. New sound effects and music in crystal-clear HD audio via an updated sound engine.

  • Expanded stats for creatures give them new abilities, defenses and vulnerabilities. Combat will require new levels of strategy.

  • New spells and hundreds of new items for you to discover. A huge world filled with secrets, riddles, traps, treasure, and glory awaits you!

  • Book III is not a dumbed-down “RPG for the masses”. Rapid button clicking won’t save you here. Eschalon pays honor to the greatest RPGs of the past, with unlimited character development options and freedom to explore the world as you wish. The difficulty of the game does not scale to your character.

  • Developer tools to be released shortly after the availability of the game. Build your own maps and make your own adventures!

  • Single player only, like a great RPG should be.

I loved playing Eschalon Book I and Book II and was eagerly looking forward to the end of the Trilogy. Having just beaten it, however, it felt like a huge disappointment. What an anti-climatic ending. Perhaps Book 2 set the bar too high - in it you ventured from the grassy woodlands, through snowy wastelands, all the way to the tropical volcano home of the enemy Taurax. The dungeons were vast, the enemies diverse, and the story and events were very engaging. I actually replayed the entire Book II again last winter in anticipation of Book III.

Book III falls on its face in comparison. The terrain and dungeons feel simplistic. The monsters feel like recycled versions of those in Book II, and finally, there feels like there was no innovation in the game engine itself. No new abilities, very few new spells, and for the 2nd time your character is reset to level 1 at the start of the game.

In light of all this, despite how much I love the series, I cannot recommend Book III.

“Have you ever tried to collect a debt from a Dwarf? I guarantee it is more difficult than slaying a dragon.”

Eschalon: Book 3 represents a good and solid turn-based RPG, that provides the same gameplay as the last two parts with slight changes in form of a broader spectrum of weapons (finally some unarmed weapons!), more skill trainers, and a change in the support function of certain attributes (e.g. speed vs traps).

On the other hand the entire game feels less refined. Most locations have only a few enemies, and the overall difficulty has been reduced, resulting in a less challenging environment. In addition the unfavourable map layout invokes the feeling of unnecessarily prolonging the game by restricting access to certain level sections.

In the end Eschalon: Book 3 is an enjoyable experience with the focus on exploration, bringing the trilogy to a satisfying conclusion.

Fun fact: Like the predecessors, 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

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).

Characters: A-Rank

Details: A-Rank

Tactical gameplay: B-Rank

Story: B-Rank

Nothing revolutionary. There's so little that's been changed for the better from Eschalon 2, the old issues remain the same and the tragic thing is that the story and locations all in all just seem weaker. Even the finale is underwhelming and the ending leaves a lot to be desired.

Save your money and just enjoy the second game, instead.

I start writing code in BlitzMAX Basic and I NOT been this Joy full since I write code in QuickBasic in the 80's. I become curious if any game was made with BlitzMAX? So I start Google and I found out Eschalon series was made with BlitzMAX Basic

Eschalon: Book III Feels like a Rogue Like Ultima VII game

Run 1:
An Archer
I get until map 3 where murderous fly was immune to my arrows

Run 2:
An Archer with Weapon Bludgeoning for the murderous fly's
I die of having worms

Run 3:
Arcane, Elemental and Arcane Divinanation and Cartography
I realize I need to focus my Skill points on 1 attack Skill

Run 4:
Arcane, Elemental and Cartography
It took 16 hour Camping to regenerate the mana

Run 5:
Arcane, Elemental Meditation and Cartography
I know now where I can POWER Level
I was quite successful until I run out of food, No more food in the whole world

Run 6:
Arcane, Elemental Width Foraging and Spot Hidden and No Cartography
This character was quit weak int the beginning, but he still alive!
Totally hard without Cartography
I learn I can rent a room to restore my character HP, Mana, Food and Thirst
So I think this character might have a chance!

Eschalon: Book III has much of it's gameplay from Ultima VII
I buy allot of RPG game on Steam but no one come close to Eschalon: Book III in feeling..
I am going to try add Eschalon: Book I and II to my Steam Library some day

Real Quest, Not like kill 7 slimes OR get 25 shoes from dead horses
Don't need Mouse
Good sound
Feel little like Fallout 2 and Ultima VII

Slow walking, little better in OpenGL
Not a open world map, it's all about zones
Very hard game need to restart from the beginning many time to do it right
The Story don't feel authentic when I need to restart over and over

All in all this game is Old school

Eschalon : Book III est un jeu de rôle au tour par tour dans un style plutôt rétro.

Le jeu fait parti d'une trilogie (d'où sont numéro 3) mais peut être joué indépendamment des deux autres épisodes. Par contre, si vous achetez les trois jeux d'un coup, je vous conseille de commencer avec le premier livre puis le second qui semblent beaucoup plus basiques dans l'interface mais beaucoup plus riche par leur histoire (selon certains joueurs). De mon côté, ils sont en attente d'être joués.

Malheureusement, je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de jouer aussi longtemps que j'aurais aimé à Eschalon Book 3. Mais il y a une chose dont je suis sûr, c'est que c'est comme ça que j'aime les jeux de rôle.

Pour lire mon test sur Eschalon Book III !

Ugh, what to say... I'll start off by saying that I'm a big fan of the series and I was patiently waiting for 3 years for this game. Checking the website regularly to see if there were any updates. I've played both Book I and Book II multiple times with different builds and playstyles. I love both of those games to bits. Now after 3 years, what we got was a short and disappointing ending to the trilogy.

I really hate to say this, but Eschalon: Book III is the worst part of the trilogy and very unsatisfying in almost every aspect. Not only is it by far the shortest of the three games (took me around 13 hours where at least 4 hours was aimless wandering, trying to find obscure clues for obscure quests.) but it also has the worst world design of the whole trilogy. Around 50% of the world is swamps and all the roads and passes are infuriatingly designed where every convenient way is blocked, making it a huge pain to get around if you're going for the no fast travel challenge. This was not the case in Book II. I'm not sure if I'm just so used to the Eschalon ruleset, but the game was also extremely easy and only after around halfway the game started throwing at least some challenge.

In the end, it's still Eschalon. It's still fun for what it is. But I really really hate to see the series end like this. *sigh* I'm going to put a thumb down just to balance things out, but honestly I don't know if I'd recommend it or not. If you're a fan, you already have it and this review won't hold a lot of weight.

Sinathor out.
