DHGF: In a nutshell, Avernum Escape from the Pit belongs in the nineties. There was no need for the game to be remade a second time just because the first remake was having issues running under current Windows 7 or the latest Mac OS. There are ways around that via Virtual PC programs. Avernum has so much reading in it that it bores me and the combat and exploration, though enjoyable, isn’t strong enough to merit me to play for extended periods of time. Unless you never played Exile or Avernum 2000 I can’t really recommend even picking up this game to even the most hardcore of computer RPG fans.
