If You've Played any of the previous Avernum games, then you'll already know what to expect from this latest instalment - more of the same. If you're unfamiliar with the series, Avernum IV is an isometric RPG set in a subterranean world whose very existence is threatened by a sinister evil.
Visually, Avernum IV is less stimulating than granny porn, though beneath the ugliness is a fairly deep and accomplished adventure. Strangely, it often feels like a cross between a text adventure and a standard RPG, with endless (though fairly well-written) chunks of text breaking up the exploration and some hugely unsatisfying turn-based combat.
Despite Avernum IV's solid plot and imaginative collection of creatures and spells, there's little here to distinguish it from its predecessors and ultimately, it's impossible to recommend it - especially when you can now buy Neverwinter Nights for less than a tenner. Solid, but unarguably unspectacular.
