About This Game

Silverfall, a once glorious city, lies in the fantastical Kingdom of Nelwë, where the forces of Technology and Nature are strongly opposed. Symptoms of this terrible conflict have begun to manifest physically as melded cyberbiologic organics and living steam-driven automatons.
Drag your hero from the pits of this world and craft him into a mighty champion that can oppose the planet-choking Order of Nothingness. Freedom to evolve in either the technological or spiritual paths is in your hands and you must choose your comrades wisely to provide a balance and benefit to your efforts - but be cautious, any bias in your choices will either corrupt or upgrade the growing world around you.
  • Create & customize your hero (face, sex, skin, hair...) from the 4 Nelwë races (human, elf, goblin & troll).
  • Your hero advances without class limits and with more than 130 skills & magic spells at his disposal.
  • Freely explore a stunning and immense fantasy world!
  • From the floating city of Cloudworks, to the volcanic scenery of the city of Blazis.
  • Revolutionary light and shadow effects combine with a realistic physics engine which gives never seen before detail to the environment & special effects.
  • Playable with up to 8 players in multiplayer mode through either a LAN connection or on the Internet, with cooperative play or PvP.

An amazing RPG. A few glitches that i've encountered : the teleport system being unstable and while teleporting to a specific location you can wake up in a totally different place, also there are some map glithes when enemies, your companions or even you can get stuck in certain spots being unable to move, though this can be fixed just with restarting the game. Despite of this insignifiant "problems" i found this game to be extremely entertaining. A lot of quest to be done, a wide variety of items, a lot of companions to choose from, who help you in your journey and in the meantime by the answers you give them to their question you can influence the attitude they will have towards you, if your companion is a woman you can even get her in love with you. It is pretty important in Silverfall that you chose right from the start if you want to go the technology or the nature path. If you do quests of the opposing faction you lose points with yours and that means you can't use your best armor and maybe even some skills anymore. So, before starting playing the game i would recommend finding some external info about the quest for each side. to keep track of what you should and shouldn't do. I had a great time playing it, and now i'm looking foward to Earth Awakening expansion.

It is hard to decide if this game should be recommended or not. It is basically a Dungeon Siege clone, albeit less polished. The interesting aspect is the decision between nature and technology the player has to take. Unfortunately, in the long run the whole setup gets somewhat boring and repetitive, with the game seemingly lacking some fine tuning, and the somewhat crappy inventory management being more annoying than necessary. On the plus side there is the character development/skill system.

If your main focus is on combat and leveling and gathering of the best loot, you may still want to give this a try if you've already done with Torchlight, Dungeon Siege etc. and do not mind the weaknesses of "Silverfall".

I wouldn't recommend this game at full price. I picked it up for less than $4, and it is totally worth it. You can easily get in 20 hours of enjoyable gameplay solo. The skill master rapidly drains your money if you don't plan out your characters, but I just started new if I didn't like a character by level 15. If you have a lan connection for multiplayer, then I'd say you will triple your game time. The controls can be difficult to work with, but targeting is simple, and hotkeys will allow you to organize what is important to your character. It also has some minor glitches with movement and occassionally leveling. Typos are abundant, but all in all it is an endearing little game.

Silverfall is flawed for sure but has some satisfying elements for action rpg fans. Might be tricky getting it to run but is definatly worth it on sale.

Pros:
- Characters are highly customizable with six races to choose from and a simple yet robust set of skill trees
- Neat morality system, align with nature or technology to access unique skills and equipment
- Lootfest with a pretty deep crafting system
- Attractve cell-shaded art

Cons:
- Lots of terrain issues, getting stuck on bushes, slight inclines, etc.
- Skill hotbars are counter-intuitive but can be remapped
- No UI scaling makes text difficult to read from a distance
- The map and quest log are clunky to use

Plays Like: Torchlight / Neverwinter Nights

Silverfalll, developed by Monte Cristo delivers an average action RPG experience. To it's credit it includes a wide variety of items, interesting stylized graphics, as well as complex crafting and skill trees. Unfortunately, at high widescreen resolutions, the onscreen text and menus are incredibly small making it difficult and tedious to read quests and navigate the various character screens. In addition, the camera control, while allowing 360 degree movement, is not automatically tethered to the orientation of the mini-map, making simple navigation a chore. Lastly, the actual action can grow a little dull, as melee characters in particular need only select a target and sit back while the ai and pc automatically duke it out. Despite these deficiencies, Silverfall is certainly a solid addition to any RPG library.
