    Another great role-play game from Spiderweb Software, with a vast game world and more than fifty hours of gameplay.

    For those who are already fans of the series, I’d suggest Crystal Souls is an essential purchase. For those none the wiser to Spiderweb Software’s extensive back catalogue, there’s no better time to join the fight.

    An enormous, expansive and peerlessly written RPG that succeeds both on the strength of its world and its innovative campaign structure. So long as you're willing to read and exercise a little imagination, that is.

    Overall, it's among the best indie role-playing game experiences ever crafted, and if low-fi visuals and reading don't scare you, it's well worth the purchase, especially since there is just so much content to enjoy, as well as added value through replayability.

    A very old school RPG. If you like hyper-complex mechanics and dated graphics, go for it.

    Avernum 2: Crystal Souls is an adventure which pays tribute to the old classics by its enormous content. Small budget and a lack of resources are unfortunately clearly visible. Old-school gamers who remember the Exile II will enjoy this one anyway.

    This is not the sort of game that can easily be recommended to a mass audience, but for a certain group of players it definitely delivers an experience worth having.
