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.

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".

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.

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.

- 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

- 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

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.

DO NOT BUY !!!!!!!

I really like the premise, for me Silverfall falls under the hack/slash rpg genre; it has character creation (female/male), ability to upgrade your character as you choose, armour/weapons choices.

I tried hard to like this game, but where it fails horribly :
- is the insane and extremely difficult controls. I found it hard to wrap my head around the mini map and the orientation of the whole game. Plus the character is prone to getting stuck in the most awkward moments.
- extremely difficult, coupled by the fact that when you die you lose all your equipped items. So if you are fighting a challenging boss or swarms of enemy and die, you can pretty much kiss all your equipped items good bye.

I bought both Silverfall and Silverfall : Earth Awakening for less than $5, I want my $5 back.

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.

The reviews from people who actually have this game running are mixed but after thinking "I'll give it a go." I found that the game would not run correctly and that there is no support. The website just tries to sell you stuff and looks like it was put together by a 6 year old.

Plenty of tech issues on the forums with no solutions. I personally am unable to even get the game past the menu. May as well have thrown my money in the toilet...

Could be a good game..
S**ty controls. Terrible map. NPC mostly dont talk..
After few hours the game makes fun except the f**ing map to navigate..
But for 3 Bucks its better then nothing. You can play it at cold winterdays..or go outside and drink some beer...

I want to like this... I love action RPGs. But this game is just beyond punishing. You qute literally die every 2 minutes. The click detection is appalling as well. It's built like an MMO, but plays like a single player game and unfortunately makes the worst of both worlds (enemies that are all back when you reload is a prime example. Makes for a LOT of grinding). I also have the PSP version and to be honest, it's the better of the 2.

I would like to say this was a shocker at first for many resons

1. this was not easy to start to play game there was two probems with getting it to run on a new system and once running then mouse pointer was hidden then the config screen was messed so could not fix it.
so yes there are issues and if you don't know how to fix and find them steam commuity forums then don't buy it.

2. once the game was running another shocker the tutorial was not annoying.( now days with way people program then its ment for a 8 year old kids for most video games not this game read tutorial or skip it and your given a high end mage with all the spells sink or swim.

3. once you die you lose evey thing till you find the chest for the life insurance gobin. after many deaths ....... even more deaths starting out with undes only I built a mage it was fun.

4. There are not many games I go I have to play it though I have them diablo 3 same gene type of game. this one though is way better then that in that I feel like I'm playing a version morrwind with freedom to mess up it royaly where can run in to something a low level can not deal with and good luck trying to run a way or load up next area and be ambushed with none of your spells on fun fun know your hot keys !

5. like morrwind you can make the charater in to any thing any hybrid mage tank , dps mage what ever you dream up with spells in the game you can make it truly your own. mine is summoner tank I have these undead and nature beast jump in to the battle with me i then stun enemys with frost wave and slowly beat there heads in with sword and sheald.

to rap it up if you can get it to work dont mind a little dated grafics and you dont have a life becouse this will suck it up you just forget the time and keep playing this.

I had to download a certain software that added another gaming app for Silverfall to run then the app stops working and so does my game. So I go to redownload and the app is no longer needed and no i hav e a game that I can't play anymore nor redownload. Yes, i have tried removing it from my library and my whole computer (even tried it on a diferent computer still nothing).

As for the game it's very slow paced and the style is nto so much my taste but good for a very weak D&D type.

Very disappointing that this can't be played on today's computers. The resolution and graphics are all screwed up in Windows 7 64bit on 1600x900 monitor.

Don't waste your time or money on Silverfall: Earth Awakening either.

i played for about half an hour- i never killed anything, i never found anything TO kill. i just tried moving around on the screen looking for something to do which was a nightmarish chore. then i uninstalled it and am telling you not to make my mistake. DO NOT EVER BUY THIS GAME. Even if you have the time and the money to waste-waste it on something else. anything else
