It's just plain old boring...



Those familiar with Spiderweb Software's games will know what to expect, a huge game revolving round an utterly engrossing storyline with tons of things to achieve, explore and discover. This is not a casual game and unsuitable for a quick blast before dinner, you will need to invest a lot of time but will be rewarded with a traditional, believable fantasy world that you truly feel a part of as you play, its always great when your personality shapes how your characters progress in the game, as the storyline although important, is not fixed.

I've always played the demos of Spiderwebs games but never brought one, as a result of the app store and a gift voucher, i thought i would give this a shot, i'm very glad i did. This is one of those adventures that will be on your mind when your at work or doing other things, pondering what will happen next and generally distracting you from many things

One other thing i would mention is that Avadon doesn't really nurse you into how to play and how it works as much as previous offerings have, if you have never played a game from these guys, you might want to consider starting with the Genieforge series

Excellent old-school RPG


If you are the sort of person who bemoans the fact that many modern RPGs are becoming more "streamlined" (Dragon Age 2 I'm looking at you) then this is the perfect antidote. Avadon isn't going to win any beauty contests, in fact it looks like it could have been made 15 years ago, and indeed that is part of the charm. This really is the sort of RPG you didn't think they made any more, and it is to the eternal credit of Spiderweb Software that they are still producing something in this style and of this quality. Deep RPG gameplay, a big main storyline, loads of side quests, and a great new fantasy universe. Spiderweb say that this will be the first of several new games in this world, and I for one am looking forward to them already.
