Ships Ahoy - Silverfall

Atari announces that Silverfall is shipping, and that Monte Cristo's action/RPG is appearing in North American stores:

NEW YORK, NY, March 22, 2007 – Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR), one of the world’s most recognized brands and leading third-party video game publisher, today announced that Silverfall®, a dynamic 3D action role-playing game (RPG), has arrived at retailers across North America. Developed by Monte Cristo Games, Silverfall is rated T for Teen and is available for the Windows platform at a suggested retail price of $39.95.

Silverfall casts players into a world torn between science and nature, forcing gamers to choose between the two in order to save the principal city from total destruction. The player must take on quests and defeat slews of opponents during the journey through the fascinating world of Nelwë. Two non-playing character (NPC) companions accompany and assist the player throughout the Silverfall adventure. Decisions made during each quest will be key as choices impact storyline, environment and accumulation of skills.

“Engaging, immersive and imaginative, Silverfall is a unique addition to the genre of role-playing games,” said Stephen Baer, senior product manager, Atari, Inc. “Having been among the top five of GameSpot.com’s ‘Top 10 PC games’ list for the last week, Silverfall is certainly a must-have for PC and RPG fans alike.”

Silverfall offers a unique character building system of advancement and equipment that allows for complete customization of characters. Gamers can develop distinctive characters such as scientist troll magicians, elemental elf warriors, or mercantile goblins. Fighting and magic are employed throughout, and vary from melee, ranged, and technical, to light, elemental and dark. Gamers will play through a 25-hour main quest, numerous side quests and two multiplayer modes, player-versus-player and co-operative; and can further extend their experience with the included game editor, allowing would-be level designers to create their own adventures to play alone or with friends.

With four races to choose from, nine skill sets encompassing more than 130 individual skills, over 100 monsters, and advanced 3D graphics, Silverfall replenishes the RPG genre with a memorable hack-and-slash action adventure.

Downloaded the demo and tried to play it, but it gave me errors couple of times and did not start up. Never bothered after that.

i tried it too, after an hour i uninstalled it. looks like a diablo clone, acts like a diablo clone, but doesn't play like a diablo clone. you're better off with Titan Quest, Dungeon Siege (1&2), and Sacred - in that order.

I tried the european release ... sloppy, awfull, bad diablo clone. Graphics had a nice touch, but the gameplay seemed cheap and rushed.

For some reason it makes me think of Arcanum... anyone want to post comparisons?

NAAAARF!
