    An embarrassing, nauseating mess. [Spring 2011, p.116]

    Far from being a void attempt at the genre in digital form, Faery is charming thanks to its freshness and classic world revisiting the forgotten tales and legends. But it will will quickly show its limits to the RPG fans, because of its not-so-deep gameplay. Despite its limitations, Faery remains an interesting proposition, if you have already consumed all the must-have games of the downloadable offerings out there.

The graphics and character designs are very nicely done. In the beginning, you get to customize your character's facial features only but there are a ton of options so it feels like you are making a very unique character (I just wish there were more hair style options). You spend the game doing quests for people, which are actually errands more than anything and fighting various creatures along the way. Sometimes you can choose how to go about doing a quest, like you can pick a peaceful way of solving problems (involving running more errands) or you can just fight. As you level up, the appearance of your character changes depending on what new abilities you pick. Be warned though, once you pick your first elemental magic, you are stuck leveling up just that element. The fighting is pretty easy but at least you fight a variety of enemies that keeps it interesting. Overall, I enjoyed it and thought it was very pretty and worth the money. Just wish there was another level or two and more leveling up options. Full Review »

    this game Faery: Legends of Avalon is actually an 8.5 it suffers from things it cannot control like 0 voice communication other than gruntsthis game Faery: Legends of Avalon is actually an 8.5 it suffers from things it cannot control like 0 voice communication other than grunts and yelps in battle. however with the HUGE number of dialogue options i can't see how you stay at 14.99 or remain under 1gb of download. i read issues with flying maybe they only played the demo as its not perfect but flying is rarely done in a rpg like lets say...walking...but its not bad...its not. its maybe an 8 when you get hang of it.... the graphics start of rather.. meh....then in the second world become delightful...the tree world ....you see faery is a little dude with wings...so you communicate with squirrels and ants, hornets attack you...the tree is lush and green...life and ambience...the battles are turnbased with the option of offensive front or defensive back position plus multlple attack...stringing together ....per turn. the clothing options alter your look...another issue the game doesn't explain metamorphosis (your abilities) once chosen are set. so if you choose fire you open up fire options but cannot go back and change ....THATS LIFE....otherwise my time spent with this little dude and his companions has been great and at 14.99 you cant beat it with a stick...as a download rpg..
