  1. 90's Style RPG... made in 2010
    by Yawaru, USA - Apr 3rd 2016

    Avencast: Rise of the Mage is a 3rd person action game where you control a young mage learning to battle evil. If you're thinking Harry Potter, you aren't too far off. The problem is the presentation and graphics do not look like a relatively recent game. A theme you might notice with games published by Meridian 4 is decent games with an overall lack of polish and refinement. The problem with 3rd person action games is there's simply too much competition in the budget indie market to rate the game highly. It's competent, but the presentation may make the game difficult to get into. Tutorials are basic blocks of text and introductory missions. There's little style or flair to the UI, crowded with boxes of muddy graphics that lack conveyance or impact.

    Combat is relatively simple, you have a weak melee attack with up to 4 equipable spells. You can customize the character visibly with equipment, customize stat progression, and a relatively small skill tree to unlock new spells. The game handles reasonably well, but the graphics look like a PS2 game. There are a fair number of games at a similar price point with better graphics, better gameplay, more customization, and are simply better. It does have passable voice acting, but the script writing is long-winded and too exposition heavy.

    Overall, it's a decent game if you're willing to put in the time to get used to controls and UI, but I hesitate to recommend it.
