    I enjoyed this game! But it's not something I would ever replay.

    Rated on September 25, 2009 by omnimodis78

    This is one of those games you play once - and you enjoy it while it lasts, but that's about it! I found nothing new in this game, but fortunately nothing outdated either. It's easy to get the contr...

    A game that could have been better, but a large amount of bugs and instances of stale gameplay bring it down.

    As interesting as the game looked from the gamespot review, even just starting it up I had issues with the game. It seems that every time I start Avencast it tries to auto-adjust my monitors resolutio...

    A good game that could have been made better

    Rated on January 04, 2010 by rohitmitra5752

    Avencast is a good game, but not quite up to the mark of others in the same genre like Fable, etc. 1. Gameplay - Like any other action RPG game, like Fable, Avencast is a third person fighting game...

    Kill monsters, collect loot, level up and ... repeat.

    Rated on August 21, 2008 by wrednajasobaka

    This game has one of the most innovative and unique plots I have ever encountered. Imagine that you are student in a school of mages when it gets overrun by hordes of demons. And you are selected to s...

    Enjoyable Action/RPG... with a Twist

    Rated on July 02, 2010 by vernholio

    Mind you, I'm only about 15+ hours into this game, but I've been pleasantly surprised with it, so far. First of all to one of the things in the game that I've taken a liking to: The controls. I...

    Grants some fun in the first 3 hours, after all becomes a boring repetition

    Rated on December 15, 2008 by khangengis

    I play Avencast until the end only because i don´t have another game to play, as i said before, in the first hours you will get some fun, so if you wants something to pass the time try it. The good...

    Unique genre bending game. I gave it a higher score because its an indie developer.

    Rated on September 28, 2010 by mutantspicy

    I probably would have gave this a 7.5 but since this an indie developer's maiden voyage I'll give em an extra point and a half. Well onto the game. Overall the story is decent, the sound and visu...

    Avencast: Rise of the Mage is a game with a promising start but doesn't keep up with the promise for long.

    Rated on October 04, 2010 by Oncus

    Gameplay:The game at first looked very promising. The reason for that is because pretty soon, after a few quest of basic training to get you started, it starts of challenging. Meaning you could very e...

    Avencast starts out okay, but after a while you can see the rails and it gets a bit claustrophobic...
