Eschalon: Book III - Review @ GameBanshee

by Couchpotato, 2014-04-09 05:41:15

GameBanshee's Steven Carter has posted a new review for Eschalon: Book III. The review is three pages long so I will just post the conclusion.


Overall, while the Eschalon trilogy didn't win a lot of awards or appear on many top 10 lists, all of its games have been solid, and Book III is no exception.  The campaign might take you 25+ hours to complete, and with all of the options for character builds, and with the fundamentally different ways some of those builds play, that means you might spend 50+ enjoyable hours with the game, which is a good deal at its $20 asking price.

That being said, Book III is very similar to Books I and II, so if you didn't enjoy those earlier games then you won't like the new one, either.  But since all of the games are similar, that means you could pick up Books I and II (which you can often find for $5 from online retailers) and inexpensively test out if the series is right for you.  I enjoyed the time I spent with Eschalon, and I'm quite sad to see it end.
