The uneasy alliance of seven western kingdoms created the Citadel of Avalon as a mighty fortress. For 12 years, the battle has been gallantly fought against the Sha'ahoul, raiders from the distant steppes of the east. With supplies and morale running precariously low, General Ovon, commander of the Citadel's field forces, hatches a bold plan. He personally leads a huge expedition -- one-third of Avalon's forces -- on a raid against a poorly defended enemy supply camp. The general is never seen again. Vanishing with him are 1,700 men. Avalon's garrison is depleted. A final devastating assault is expected at any time. But who or what is the enemy? Now is the time for courage. For a hero. Now is the time for the birth of a legend.

    With this game's gradually revealed story of deception, treachery, and heroism, the age of good storytelling has returned. It doesn't come without a price, though -- be prepared to read. A lot.
  2. Even though it has a great story, which is sufficiently complex and intriguing to keep you glued to the screen for hours, the game lacks depth we had a chance to see in "Baldur's Gate."
  3. Unfortunately, as much as Siege of Avalon improves upon "Diablo"-esque storytelling, it's a huge step backward in terms of gameplay. [May 2002, p.84]
