Yes. The graphics are awesome, too.

Exile 3 certainly is. It compares quite favourably to professional games.

The graphics really aren't that bad once you start playing the game.

Exile 2 and Blades of Exile would be good choices.

I would advise you to download a demo and see for yourself. For your first demo, I would actually recommend Exile 3. It has better effects and overall the most pleasing graphics.

It depends on what you want in your games. If you want a good story and fun gameplay, Exile is great, especially Exile 2 and some BoE scenarios. Think of it like a book: books don't have 3-D graphics or special effects, but some books are more fun than most computer games.

If what you want in your games is realistic graphics, realistic real time movement, etc, buy The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. (However, you might have to buy a new computer to play it. :) )

For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

Exile 1 is the oldest and you probably will hate having only a few slots to store items. Exile 2 has the best plot, better graphics, and a better game engine. Exile 3 is the surface, but you now have a weight limitation. Blades of Exile depends upon the scenario.

The graphics aren't that bad and the plots are good.

It depends upon what you like.

I enjoyed Exile 3 a lot, but I think Blades of Exile is the best game ever!

You dislike reading but enjoy SW games? Interesting…

The Avernum trilogy is more or less the same as the Exile trilogy. There are some differences, but not enough to play both trilogies, IMO.

Try BoE instead.

Exile 3 Definitely is. I prefer the simple graphics (much easier with doors) but if you played the avernums first you might just really hate the graphics. If you download one of the games and try it out, then there's no money wasted.

You can't delete your own posts. Next time think more carefully before you post.

IMO, it's a lot like acid. You can't ask someone their opinion and expect them to be right, you have to take the time to experience the game(s) yourself and decide whether or not it's worth registering afterwards. But hey, that's just what I think. And I'm usually wrong.

Some people's opinion on acid may be different than yours. Some might thing it is a fine bathing substance, while others might prefer it as a cool refereshing energy drink.

That's not exactly the acid I was reffering to...the point I was trying to get across was that you can't have someone explain the Exile/Avernum games to you, you need to go and play them yourself to truly experience their greatness and uniqueness. Acid and Avernum are both fun, original trips and it's best to just figure that out for yourself instead of having someone try to explain it to you. Not a very good comparison on my part, but I tried.

I look at it this way: the graphics for this game are lack-luster, when you compare them to the likes of modern games. However the art is fantastic, it gets across exactly what it needs to, and is fun and engaging.

As far as story goes, exile II has a better story then all the ps2 games I’ve played in the recent years.

Yeah. It's one of those games where you have to play it before you really get hooked on it.

I didn't have to play much to get hooked on it. I've gotten over it and then started liking it again.
