After 1.7 hours the game is not bad so far. I noticed there are different kind of bad reviews. I play on PC , and the controls came natural to me. Maybe I can write more about it later. (There is a lot of game I have to try out..:P But currently this is on my "play it through one day" list.)
I began on hard level, but maybe it's recommended to play it on normal. It is not a good experience to die. But its not too hard on hard level either, just anoying to replay parts from the last saved game every time you die accidently. There is autosave too of course. There is skill points, items, quests, magic, combos for different attacks. Every character seems to have it's own voice too. So you may want to try it one day.

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.

A lot of rpg game should be control as simple as this game's controls.Avencast a bit low on map system but it is a classic which everyone should play as a soul magician :)

In this game you can feel like you are at Hogwarts more then in any other Harry Potter games even with a little bit outdated graphic.

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

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.

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.

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