    Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues Review - Choose Your Path

    Shroud of the Avatar is a role-playing game developed by Richard Garriot, Starr Long, Chris Spears, and Tracy Hickman. The game is depicted as the successor to the Ultima Series from Origin Systems, Inc.

    The game environment is not that bad, it has a weather and night/day system. The snowy part of the map needs improvement though, as well as smoother trees and rocks. Because even when my graphic settings are at the highest setting, the low quality shows. The graphics aspect of the game needs to be improved as it will also be a huge factor in the game aside from the combat dynamics and interface.

    All in all, this game is okay but really needs improvement when it comes to the user interface and the combat dynamics as what I have mentioned earlier. In spite of that, I would still play it because there are still more in this game that I need to explore.

    Score: 6/10

    Pros
    • Weather system
    • Good crafting system
    • Interesting map travel
    • Trading system
    • Good loading screen art
    Cons
    • Lack of combat dynamics
    • Weapons not showing when stowed
    • Old school damage floaters
    • Mediocre graphics
