Avalon Code

 

 

SCORE: 63

 

Avalon Code 

 

Avalon Code is a partnership Nintendo DS release from Marvelous Entertainment USA, Inc, and XSeed Games. The world is about ready to end because of corruption, and you must create a new one. This is done thanks to the book of prophecy. This book is used to chronicle people, monsters, and items the player comes across. Plenty of role playing games have done that in the past. Avalon Code takes it a step further by letting the player tweak the stats. Find something of interest in a monster, then take it out and use it on your own sword. Take the illness away from a sick person. There are limitations to this system (editor: of course). Scanning someone with this book adds a different dimension to the normal hacking and slashing involved in the fighting. The concept of finding this magical book, and getting to play around with reality itself touches upon the spiritual nature of the real world. This God like power would certainly be dangerous in the wrong hands.

Avalon Code disappointed me in the graphics department. The graphics were grainy and pixelated. Avalon Code may have worked better on the Playstation Portable (of course it would not reach nearly as many people). There are spirits in this DS game, and one of them guides the player. No one else can see this spirit either.

This reviewer would strongly recommend that parents use the rating age as a minimum. The language issues in this game detracted from the experience, and made the RPG Master unhappy. They were not needed, and plenty of civil alternatives are available. The storyline is dangerous for younger members of the family as well.

Avalon Code contains a lot of different items, and options available. One player at a time can play this Nintendo DS so this game does not bring people together. The story can be slow at times, and this reviewer found this game to be a chore to play through.

The scanning all these things with the book sounds good on paper. However in application it becomes a chore, and needless length to Avalon Code. The story makes this reviewer uncomfortable, and seems more about destruction than it does creation. For some reason this DS game seemed to drone on, and the fights were mindless more often than not.

Avalon Code was a game that the RPG Master hoped would be a great one. Unfortunately the graphics, gameplay, and storyline did not set well. What is the point of chronicling the entire world if it is corrupt and going to be destroyed? If the player was an angel and did not have to mindlessly fight a sequel would be welcome.
