Default Eschalon: Book I - Review @ Macworld

March 12th, 2012, 05:29
In a blast from the past, Macworld has reviewed the first Eschalon game for a score of 3.5/5:
In fact, almost every interaction you have with the game is based on dice rolls. Itís extraordinarily non-linear in that respect, which is great for RPG players that just want to explore without feeling pressured to follow specific storylines or plots. The downside is that the game doesnít necessarily play down to your level early on, so itís possible Ė in fact, itís very easy Ė to wander off into areas where there are higher-level monsters that will kill you almost immediately. This gets frustrating, so it takes some trial-and-error to find areas in the game youíre well equipped and experienced enough to handle.
