Not to bad of a story. something that will definitely hold your attention if you love isometric rpgs, another great element of the game is controlling your character with wasd. It's got more of a JK Rowling Fantasy feel, than say a Tolkien, or King.
Avencast is not a classic hack'n'slash or a common RPG. You control your character with the WASD and you cast the spell like a beat'em up game with your keyboard an mouse. Combat is fast paced and full of projectiles and rushing enemies. Lastly the game overall has a great gripping story, visually pleasing graphics and a huge variety of spells. I would recommend it as an action adventure.
This one was quite enjoyable classic style h&s action RPG, similar to Diablo franchise. Just with the emphasis mainly concentrated around the spell-casting side of things rather than physical combat of most of Diablo characters (it plays much more like Wizard from Diablo) just as the title suggests. All the battling can get a bit tedious at times as most of the enemies have quite a lot of HP and you have to constantly backtrack as you don´t want to get in close-up confrontations with the enemies as an mage, for too long. But it also does contain some puzzle-elements along the way, which offer you an nice break from all the grinding. I would say this is an game worth checking out for all the fans of this genre.
Avencast is a rpg harry potter like game made by EA,the graphics aren't so good and not so bad, the gameplay is all about practice, because it is hard to understand and the history doesn't makes you want to keep playing. In short you should only buy this game if you have anything else to play and you want to meet a new kind of game.
Avencast is an action RPG with much potential, as it's often the case. But potential alone doesn't guarantee success. A major feature you can like is the combo system, that breaks that well known endless left clicking present in any action RPG. There are melee spells, ranged, area of effect, some buffs. Nothing really spectacular. Gameplay is as it should be, meaning many enemies, lots of action, places to be, exploration is fun. Yet the game lacks. Controls are not what I expected them to be, felt clumsy. I experienced issues with graphics glitches and game lag, which, for a game that old, can be accounted only to bad optimisation. It can be a good game to pass time, but don't expect much, and you might not be disappointed, and actually like the game.
