Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

From the peaks of Silverfall the Fair to the eternal mists of Cloudworks, your quest will take you far and wide in your battle against the advent of the order of darkness. Numerous companions will share your adventure and use their powers to help you as best they can in your fight against Death-Shadow and his allies. The invention of the steam engine has overturned the ancient social orders and created virtual industrial kingdoms. Weary of the abuses imposed on them by the scientific societies, certain populations have rejected civilization as a whole and turned to the power of nature. Taking advantage of the conflicts that tear the partisans of nature and science apart, the forces of darkness and their commander, Death-Shadow, are besieging the magic places to appropriate their powers. Certain sovereigns of Nelwë find an interest in this chaos and have joined forces with the evil power, while others are prepared to fight for their traditions.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly the graphics arent all I hoped for. The character creation options are extremely limited and I simply couldnt make a character I liked the look of no matter how hard I tried.

Secondly the gameplay is insanely hard. One problem is the point and click movement which often sees you unable to flee in a crowded fight because you cant click on a empty bit of land to flee to. Thus you die. Also the camera angles make it very hard to see whats ahead (zooming in gives a nice view of your back and the view for a tiny distance in front of you, zooming out makes the camera tilt downwards showing you a nice view of the top of your head, useful huh?). This means you often run into too many monsters or cant clearly see how to avoid them. Thus you die.

Now, about all this dying. Normally in a game death is no big deal. In Silvefall its a nightmare. For a start you drop all equipment and weapons on the spot and end up back in the start village in your underpants. You then have to retrace your steps to the place where you died, and attempt to retrieve your equipment, which is where you left it, surrounded by the monsters that killed you. So, not only did they kill you when you were fully equipped, this time you have to fight them with no equipment at all, just those trusty underpants. This means you often die over and over. In an hour you can die 15 times and totally forget that youre on some epic quest to save the world. It just feels like a game of 'run around in your underpants to get your gear back'. Fun.

It wouldnt matter if it was hard to die, but its not. Dying is incredibly easy and doesnt happen when you meet something particularly nasty like a Dragon or a huge Troll, oooh no. You die to the zombies 10 feet outside of the start village.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Biggest Hog 1 Jun. 2007
By MJ
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This game looked and sounded pretty good so I went out and bought it. When it took two ice ages to get to the main screen I knew I was going to be disappointed....

Don't get me wrong, Silverfall is a good game, nice graphics, good old Diablo like hack n slash game play, and an interesting science vs. nature plot premise.

But...and its a big BUT..this game has to be the worst system hog I've ever come across!

I have a top end PC and a stonking graphics card but even on medium settings the game runs like a one legged badger! The pathetic frame rates and constant stuttering are infuriating, especially considering this is a fast paced game!

Trust me when I say you will suffer for it. At some points things run smoothly, but as soon as you heave a sigh of relief and begin to enjoy what is a stunning fantasy world, it turns into a stuttering nightmare that makes you think you've entered a Matrix movie!

Unfortunately, this problem really saps the life out what is actually an above average RPG.

If you have a machine the size of a closet, then go ahead and enjoy! If not...avoid Silverfall and go back to playing Diablo!

3.0 out of 5 stars gets better 15 Mar. 2007
By P. Kemp
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I agree with "Gray the elfs" review being very hard to get going in this game, I did die a lot at the beginning. It did get really annoying and I really did think about giving up, it wasnt much fun at all, but, after persevering it does get better and more fun. Once you have a companion and pets life is much easier.

I also agree with Gray on the point and click movement, I dont like this at all, its really annoying when your companions get in your way when you want to move and you end up with a dialog box because you have accidently clicked on them.

the Camera angle isnt movable enough either, you can either zoom right in and have a good far view ahead or zoom out and look down on your char but not be able to see very far ahead, I really want to be able to tilt the camera angle to suit me.

Overall this is quite enjoyable but nothing special.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silverfall 15 April 2008
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
It's clear that the creaters of Silverfall had the best of intentions. They have combined much of the tried and tested gameplay from classics such as Diablo and Dungeon Siege with a twist of their own fresh ideas, adding concepts such as nature vs technology and pro active death insurance to try and make this game their own.

I'm going to try and focus on the positive sides of this game at first; graphically it is not so bad, the characters appear as though out of a cartoon comic strip, and though not to everyone's taste, I found the models used to be quite fun! This goes for all the models, from the characters themselves, be it a cheeky goblin, or a hulking troll, to the weapons and armour, offering truely murderous looking crossbows through to a porcupine fish-on-a-stick.

Well that's the positive bit done, now down to the negative aspects of this game. For ease of reading, I'm going to have to break this down into sections.

Installation: OMG this takes an age and a half to install, and then, when you think it is finally over, you find out that the installation failed. I have a few PC's in my home, myself and my gf often play co-op network games together, which is the reason we purchased (two copies of) Silverfall in the first place. We have two identical PC's but funnily enough, after installing Silverfall I had different problems on each of them, neither of which would run the game. It was after some significant amount of troubleshooting, reinstalling, patching and file manipulation that I could get the game to run on both PCs. Fortunately for me, the bugs and errors others have had getting Silverfall to run are extensively documented and available online, so I had resources enough available to get the problem fixed.
