Tedious after 2/3
I am a big fan of Spiderweb games, but I have become frustrated with this game. There are 2 things that frustrate me. First, why is there a cap on levels at 30? I reached level 30 about halfway through the game. Now what? Why not allow characters to get more powerful, or at least develop through more of the game? What's wrong with having a character that can eventually wade through lots of enemies quickly? The thing I find most frustrating is the section of the game where they start throwing lots of enemies at you in an endless stream as you try to run for some goal (like Fort Farsite, or whatever it's called). I finally gave up. It's not fun to just blow through potions and scrolls without making any progress. As an aside, it's annoying that "regular" troops are so powerful that they can cause trouble for a level 30 Hand of Avadon. Why can their magic users cast 4 spells at a time. If they can do it, I should be able to also. Anyway, I hope the next game is better.
Huge world became tedious
Having played a few of the old Spiderweb shareware games on Mac years ago and with great respect for their indie efforts, I bought this one for a long trip where I would have a lot of down time. The whole world is quite impressive, with interesting choices and political alignments. However, after playing many hours, maybe 60% through, it increasingly felt like a chore to schlep my characters around, keep track of their goals and rearrange and sell their secondhand gear/loot. I’m wondering if the earlier games were tighter, or perhaps when I was younger I enjoyed roleplaying as a human resources, travel logistics, and ebay specialist. But not anymore - I got bored. I have definitely had good experiences with other big sandbox and campaign games, but unfortunately did not feel like completing this one. It wasn’t an active decision; I just decided to play something else one day and never went back.
Another fantastic Spiderweb RPG
Nobody on iOS makes them quite like Spiderweb Software. As an old school Ultima, Bards Tale, and Baldurs Gate guy I grew up and love what's considered "old school" RPGs. I played the first Avadon all the way through, then Avernum, and figured I'd be sick of the formula by now. But I was wrong, Avadon 2 is just as terrific as the first one and has me unable to put it down. Once again a a great story. The whole experience feels like it's running much smoother this time around too - but maybe that's more my newer iPad than any major engine improvements. Bottom line - worth every cent if you like older style RPGs.
