    If you're looking for a short, fun, single-player romp through magical realms on your PC, this game is a great choice to satisfy that urge.
  2. This is a single-player title that would do well to introduce newer players to the genre, but will give veterans a nice old-school experience.
  3. These concerns aside, Clockstone Software has crafted a magically entertaining spell-casting experience--and an unexpectedly decent game. [Apr 2008, p.67]
  4. Avencast balances the action-oriented and traditional RPG genres better than you might expect.

    I say that this is a game very difficult to play for the first time, and is very scary!
    Still, you have an arsenal of spectacular spells and the graphic makes this beautiful.
    But it's too short, once you have done everything, to replay the game is boring.
    But it works!

The scenario is very good but rather typical, the gameplay adds action and rpg elements to create something most entertaining and the graphics are sooo awsome ! The only drawback is that I found it TOO hard, even on normal difficulty. Anyway, I would recommend it to any guy who likes fantasy stories and has a lot of patience Full Review »
