    Sadly this didn't do much for me at all. Sure, there are worse RPGs out there, but you know... there are SO many better ones, and given the wealth of games on the market, I'd say there's a lot more on your list before you get down to this one.

    i don't want to waste any time for this "game". should be enough sayin it's a more of the same (H&S talkin) but: - 3 Different view perspective. One worst than the other. - A very static combat gameplay (it should be one of the major point in an H&S) - A story so absurd that should be better a more linear cliché instead. One of the worst game i've ever played. And i've played a lot since 1980. Expand

    Great game, much under appreciated. Such a hidden gem, i recommend it to anyone for its great fun, interesting combat system. Its one of those games you didn't expect to be much but then you are surprised.

    I personally loved the game. 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

    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!

  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.
  3. 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.
