Even several years after release, we are still finding new reviews of Eschalon: Book I, this time by the Australian edition of MacWorld magazine. They talk about the pros and cons, ending with:
“But having said all that, I’d strongly recommend giving Eschalon: Book I a try, if you’re an old Wizardry, Ultima or Might & Magic fan looking for a game that might give you an idea of what would have happened if those tried and true classics had been developed today.”
