Role-playing game. Eschalon: Book I is a phenomenal role-playing experience that will take you across massive outdoor environments and deep into dozens of sprawling dungeons as you seek to uncover the mystery of who you are! Hundreds of items, hoardes of creatures and a multitude of menacing monsters await your discovery in this classically inspired turn-based role-playing adventure! The world of Eschalon is a dangerous place...do you accept the challenge?
Style and atmosphere inside the game:
Eschalon: Book 1 is an amusing role-playing game that features decent graphics, diverse sound effects and suitable instrumental music. The designers worked hard, so everything looks neatly, except animation, that is too modest and maximum resolution is set to 800x600. Surely it is trifle for RPG-lovers of old school, for whom the game was created. A small world, consisted of woods, plains and dark dungeons, where cities are inhabited with merchants. Story is quite straightforward: banal amnesia, standard intrigue (find artefact-save the kingdom) and expected surpirize. Minimum dialogues but tons of enemies, that are on your way to complete the missions. Character development is limited by 21 level, monsters do not survive in the captured locations, missions are too simple to pass several kilometers across deserted territories. All in all, Eschalon: Book 1 is the game for those, who miss old school role-playing games.
