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.

  • 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.

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 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.

Oldschool RPG goodness! I've always considered this series to be an excellent example of a no-nonsense, just-the-basics western RPG, and Eschalon III sticks to that tradition nicely. It's got all the core features: turn-based tactical combat, openended skill system, exploration and quests, adventurous (although not exactly deep) story, optional survival elements -- and no fluff or gimmicks. Book 3 does end sort of abruptly and is the shortest game in the series so it feels a bit unfinished, which I'd say is the primary drawback; it's overall less satisfying than the amazing Book 2. Still recommended as this particular style of neo-retro western RPG is still surprisingly rare and this one is quite competent and fun when considered on its own.

Eschalon 3-- Should you buy it?

I would suggest buying Eschalon 1 and/or 2 instead. If you are a completionist, then go ahead and get it but do so when it is on sale.

My reasons: Eschalon 1 was really interesting to me. I enjoyed learning the system. I enjoyed leveling my character. I enjoyed finding the different armor/weapons/alcehemy ingredients.

Eschalon 2 felt like an improvement and expansion of what was good about 1. I could not stop playing it.

Eschalon 3 starts out ok. It feels like the other games. But then a few things happen:

1) It is really short in comparison. That can be ok, but this game felt like an RPG with the middle 1/3 missing.
2) alchemy was ginked. In 2 you found the ingredients you needed to make cool stuff. In 3 even with insanely high Forgaging, I was unable to find/buy the ingredient to upgrade armor.
3) The combat seemed easier and not in a good way. Sometimes you don't care about the fact that combat is a bit easy. The game is more about exploration etc. But here the game just felt repetitive. In 1 and 2 combat was more interesting, it is tough to explain why.

I respect and love this game developer. I hope their next game recaptures what the first 2 had.
I really really wanted to like this game.

Summary: buy on discount. play others first.

Very fun old school Isometric game. I found the plot to be engaging. The combat enjoyable. The only complaint I have is the crime detection in the game. If you are attacked (ie a guy loses at dice against you) and the town guards see you fighting they attack you. Other than that the game felt like a good throw back to the Ultima 6 days. I do suggest if you haven't played the first two getting those first and then getting this one.

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.
