Avadon 2: The Corruption is an rpg where you choose one of five classes and go about setting your world right. It's typical rpg in that you do quests, fight, level up, choose abilities or spells to focus on and go about becoming a real man (or woman). How you do this is largely up to you as you work your way through the story, which will vary depending on how you choose to act.read more
One of the excellent qualities of Avadon is that it immerses you in a world of political intrigue and power shifting. You're not just running around slaying monsters for dubious reasons. The world is crafted so that they make sense in the environment and help set the mood. The story is excellent and has some humor to lighten things up a bit. In addition, there are many NPC's to interact with who have their own personalities and agendas.
During battle you enter turn-based mode, which gives you time to plan your attack. Since you control your whole group and many abilities, spells, and objects, the game offers great variation on tactics.
The graphics and sound are at a level that is good enough to get the job done and everything seems to be designed with a lot of care and attention to detail. The ambient sounds are plentiful, but there's no music past the intro.
In short, if you like a good story where you influence the course of events, and don't need a huge amount of ear- and eye-candy, Avadon 2 will give you hours and hours of pure rpg goodness.

Avadon is a well known and well loved title among the crpg die-hard fans and throughout the years it has received well deserved high-ranking status in the indie games community, but does the second chapter hold up to it's predecessors?
- Well, of course it does!
Lots and lots of new quests, bigger, better unique world for you to explore, new spells and abilities, new, shiny graphics,read more new monster types and new characters.
But, of course it is not without it's flaws.
- Some really wacky design choices, some new and some old, extremely bad writing and some unnecessary extra-clicking, will keep you from fully enjoying this gem.
- Like, these UFO-looking trap contractions that you can spot from MILES away and instead of avoiding them, you are forced to "dispatch" them, and they even act like monsters, stopping you in your tracks and depleting all your action points.
- Did i mention the bad writing? --it's there alright, and after all these years it's still immature.
- It's still Avadon though, the characters will still move like robots and the "I" key will still not close the inventory after opening it, but hey, if you can look past the shortcomings, or you have gotten uses to them by now, this new chapter will guarantee you hours and hours of pure classic RPG fun.
I haven't yet completed it though to give an accurate review, but from the several hours i've put in, it's definitely a must buy game, especially for the fans of the series.
