Wonderful classic RPG.
* Skill system control of what Lars and Rhen learn
* Collect power swords (Sword of Dreams etc) with unique additional skills for Rhen
* You get to fly a DRAGON!
* Stellar-quality music!
* Very cute storyline
Nyeh (room for improvement or preferences):
* Turn-based battle can be tedious - but skills make up for it
I would recommend this game to any classic RPG lover. It comes with a nice storyline and well-developed skill list. The mapping is just beautiful. Keep in mind that the battle system is turn based, not active time, however the variety of skills and items you can use make up for it. I have to give credit to Aaron for such breath-taking music. Aveyond is at this date my favourite RPG/Adventure game at BigFish (overall, it is just behind Everlong).

RPG Adventure Game
Just loved this game and the characters. Found it to be fun and challenging at the same time. The first in a series of Aveyond adventures which I highly recommend if you like rpg games. I found the graphics very good music too. The story line was wonderful IMHO....

Most Fun Adventure Game I Have Ever Played
Had a good story line, multiple options for most of the game

I remember playing this at nine years old, wishing I could buy the full version. Now that I have it holds a special place in my heart! Beautiful music and a story that keeps you going. The colors are bright and the worlds vary nicely. Leveling is difficult but it shouldn't hold you back. Keep in mind you won't beat it in a day, it can be tiring but for me it was worth the satisfaction in the end. One of my favorites!

My Favorite Game By A Wide Margin
If your taste is linear HO/P/A games, pass this one up. Otherwise, get ready for an awesome game. It is decidedly non-linear. And you definitely get your money's worth. It took me around 80 hours to play although I did manage to finish all the side quests. (Yes. Eighty.)
Although the beasties and the bosses get harder as you move through the game, your skills increase just as fast. And figuring out which characters to use in each situation just adds to the fun.
At first, I found the size of the areas to be explored overwhelming but soon I figured out how to deal with that.. (Hint: I used a left hand rule.)
Aveyond was my first RPG and I am hooked.

Best value for money game on BFG!
I happened on this game by chance, looking for something different to play, and boy, did I hit the jackpot! It strongly reminds me of an old game I used to love called 'Castle of the Winds', very similar style, except this game lasts much longer. A very old-school RPG game, well worth trying. It's fun, challenging, and never boring! Give it a go, you'll be surprised.

Great character development! It had a storyline that had me on edge the entire time. I've played and loved every game in this series and HIGHLY reccomend this game to everyone! I also reccomend everyone watching the TV series 'Doctor Who' :D

the first Aveyond, well worth playing
This a classic RPG, a few years old, but still a lot of fun! Because it's a few years old it doesn't have all the perks the later Aveyond games do. like all party members advancing whether they are active or not.
Lots of weapons, magic, quests, etc as any decent RPG game should have. The Aveyond series is one of the best, you don't need to play this one to play the Lord of Twilight series but it does give you some fun background.

I love this entire series of games. The are almost a through back to Legend of Zelda. Lots of fun.

Fun, fun, fun. Hours and loads of hours of fun. haha. The first two Aveyond titles have the most gameplay hours than the others but they are all fun. The first two are also the most challenging out of the series. Trying to level up in the beginning was a challenge especially when you get the birds. They take a lot of health. The storyline was awesome and I stayed up so many night lacking sleep trying to play. I highly recommend this game. I play a lot of ps2 and ps3 titles and this is just as fun for a fraction of the cost of those games.
