    One of the worst game i've ever played. And i've played a lot since 1980.

    Avencast has nothing to offer that is noticeably good or original, nothing to give it a more than average note.

    On the other hand, its combat system is so bad that I started getting bored with it right in the fighting tutorial. Ouch ! And finally, something very puzzling: the camera is so limited that I can never see high enough to make my vision comfortable. Hard to explain, but

  1. 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.

    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.

    After some time playing Avencast: Rise of the Mage, I discovered that sadly it's not the wizard experience I was hoping for, with all its talk of ditching maths for more shooter-style gameplay - both of which it achieves to varying degrees.
