Technically, Avencast got everything right, the interface is functional and the game has really nice graphics; especially the spell effects. But the game itself is too simple, it's almost completely hack'n'slash. The action gets repetitive pretty fast, story line is horrible collection of cliches and most of the spells are unnecessary. Still if you're a fan of this type of game, you might find it attractive.
I would certainly recommend this game to anyone new to this genre since it'll introduce them slowly.Could do with the game being a bit longer too, even though I did all of the side quests, it only took me 6 hours to complete, which is quite short for an RPG.
