Riguardo questo gioco

In a world of wizardry, wonder and untold mystery, you must undertake some of the most diverse quests to hone your skills in spell casting, weaponry and melee combat. Your martial skills are soon put to the test as demonic monsters descend upon Avencast, turning the academy into a state of chaos and destruction.

Armed with countless combat moves and spells, and a vast arsenal of equipment you must uncover the source of this evil by vanquishing an onslaught of enemies. Treachery and deceit reveal themselves as the vicious army threatens Avencast’s very existence. Amidst the mayhem, an astonishing truth unfolds which will forever change the battle scarred Wizard.

  • Avencast’s unique and innovative combat system favors skillful gameplay over dull mouse clicking. Chain together spells and execute lethal attacks. Unleash your hero’s potential as you bring your own player skills to each intense battle!
  • An exciting combination of dynamic action, adventure and traditional role-playing.
  • Captivating visuals and dazzling special effects accompany you into a world where magic truly rules the day.
  • While strength and agility will win most battles, wisdom and strategic thinking are necessary to survive Avencast’s challenging quests.
  • Choose the magic that suits you best: melee-oriented blood magic or far ranged soul magic, or an explosive cocktail of both!
  • Hordes of nightmarish monsters, each with their own diverse skills and combat strategies that adapt to your behavior.
  • Acquire new equipment, armor, weapons and spell casting skills to craft a powerful character.

It's like if Harry Potter mixed with Star Wars Episode 1 on the PSX (PlayStation 1).
It's, strange, but interesting at the same time.
I didn't really care for it though, not much of a good storyline.
5/10

Not much of a looker, but plays well.
Game-breaking bug on my end, though.

sadly this game is very rough to play on a computer with just a mouse & keyboard. Trying to aim and cast at the same time is rough to do in real time and I couldn't get past the school test with 3 mobs. If you have a gamepad the game might be much better. Beyond that I do not know, although the graphics are good enough for my tastes.

The game just isn't that great. You would expect them to have an unique magic system, but the system they have doesn't even work properly. Graphics are bad. The story is mediocre. Not worth it.

Avencast is an 'honest' game. The story is a little cliche, the plot is quite simple the visuals and sounds are a little dated. I received Avencast for free during a promotion and was not expecting much. I was actually impressed with the gameplay. Avencast focuses on spellcasting and there are two main types of magic (blood and soul). Both have some cool spells with nice visual effects. Casting relies on keyboard combos (similar to Magicka) to cast spells and execute attacks. The combat can get a little repetitive towards the end of the game and the quests aren't particularly original, but the environments are varied and there are a range of enemies. If you're after a simple action RPG where you can just spend a few hours blasting enemies into oblivion with cool spells, Avencast is exactly the right game. That's why it's honest, and that's why it's fun to play through.

It's a solid game, but the RPG elements are really lacking. It's more of an action adventure with a strong emphasis on quests. Would I recommend it as an RPG? No. Would I recommend it as an action adventure? Yes. It's not like Diablo and it focusses a lot on evading enemy attacks while trying to hit them. Think of it as the bullethell of RPGs ;)

I picked up Avencast on a whim before heading to work due to it being on sale. My first thought was that due to this game not having to worry about more than one adventurer style (Fighter & Rouge traditionaly) they would devote a plethera of attention to making an incredable magic system. Not only does this game fail on that but it delivers a horrible broken system of spells that makes the entire game an uncomfortable slog. Only devoting time to designing 2 branches of magic is lazy but this is compounded by the fact the spells are usless, boring, uncreative, and hold no promise of getting better as they reach higher tiers.

The controls are terrible, and the game runs pretty bad for being so old. I doubt I will ever try this game again, and I would never recomend it to a friend. Probably the worst game from a humble bundle I've played to date.

In this game you can feel like you are at Hogwarts more then in any other Harry Potter games even with a little bit outdated graphic.

A new favorite game of mine. The style of the quest system, as well as the combat system takes me back to the original xbox days of fantasy games...

DISCLAIMER: This is a first impressions review, and NOT a full review, if you want a full review, then please read better reviews then mine

PLEASE NOTE: If I (the reviewer) have played a game that has less than 1 hour of gameplay and is not recommended, means that I did not enjoy or it did not live up to my expectations! Think twice before rating or giving out a comment...

ALSO PLEASE NOTE: I gave this game a not recommended not because it is a broken/non-playable game or because it is not good, but maybe because of some features that the game offers which put me off. If this game did not have all the problems/features I complained about in this review, it would of got a recommended from me

UPDATE: It seems that people are giving this a thumbs down without reading it, please read this part of the update, I DON'T HATE THE GAME!!! I JUST DIDN'T LIKE IT!!! IT'S MY OPINION!!! Thank you

Avencast is a good way to the RPG genre, with its nice story line (till what I have reached), nice graphics and reminds me the times when I was a young child reading the Harry Potter series of books and imagining myself in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry which I feel the developer done a good job on

But I was put off very quickly (30 minutes into the game) but its awkward control scheme, voice acting that made me feel like the game was treating me like a child rather than a normal person playing a good RPG game and the "fetch quests" like "Oh I need this, but before I tell you where it is, you must go and get me a special potion", which really bugs me and I hate that in RPG games, I would like an RPG game where like in Enclave by Starbreeze Studios that make it all linear and to the story rather than fetching something so that the guy who asked to go and fetch it can actually tell you then when you traveled far and wide, the next person does the same thing! For me developers who do this just make it like that so that the can extend the story rather than let's say 6-8 hours of gameplay they extend it to 10-15 hours of gameplay, and me personally I do not like really long games

Now you might say "Oh, so if you don't like fetch quests than that means you don't play RPG games at all", no, not as such, I do play some RPG games that have only one or two fetch quests in the whole game, that for me is fine, but where you see a game where it is mostly 10-15 hours long, expect loads of fetch quests, which really makes me bored and sad that I cannot enjoy these great/good RPG games

Overall, I am giving this game and not recommended NOT because it is not playable or is glitchy as hell and you can't play it, but because of its awkward control scheme and because of its ridiculous amounts of side quests and fetch quests

BUT, if you like a nice game (like this) that reminds me that I am in Hogwarts, then this is the game for you, not kidding, it is actually a very good well presented RPG game, but puts ME off for its other features that most RPG games have

NOT RECOMMENDED :(
