Have played avadon some hours,would say half the game, but can´t shake the feeling that the worlds are somewhat " empty " , no offense.
Although i like the combat system and the story is surely interesting , it doesn´t give me the sensation of world.
If there´s something that the eschalon series has. ( apart from the other good things of course
), is the feeling that everything is put into it´s place naturally, and not with a "dropthatthinghere" editor.
I recall some post of BW , telling that he sometimes takes it´s time putting, moving or removing items from scenario or map ,until he finally gets it right,although having the feeling that we won´t see any difference, i would say that this actitude, is what makes this game as unique as it is.
