Monsters throwing fireballs! Alien forces! What more could a role-playing gamer want? Well, for one, a game with some decent graphics. Avernum 2 takes place in an underground prison, and as such it is very, very dark. The program suggests you change screen resolution before launching the game; heed this advice for it's the only way to adjust to the digital gloom. While we were able to make changes to the main characters, other details such as music are hands-off and preset by the program. Graphics, while 3D, are basic and uninspiring. A tutorial is recommended before any of the four main characters encounter fire-throwing monsters, as they torched us faster than we could say Avernum. The game bills itself for fans who "long for the good old days of Ultima and Wizardry," but we fear even those old schoolers may be disappointed.
