Avencast - Review @ IGN

by Magerette, 2007-12-13 19:14:02

IGN has posted a review for Clockstone Software's Avencast:Rise of the Mage,  rating it at 7/10 with a mostly positive slant:

With so many typical fantasy RPGs coming out all the time, it’s nice to see something a little different in Avencast Rise of the Mage. Despite the cliché setting and plot, it manages to differentiate itself well by incorporating environmental puzzles and an action-oriented control system. Even if you don’t always feel terribly invested in the events, at least the thinking and dexterity required provide a more involved experience than your typical hold-the-left-mouse-button hack ‘n slash. Avencast may not be for everybody, but while it could use a bit more spit polish in places, it’s more than the generic box art lets on.
