Exile = my childhood

Recommended Posts

I absolutely loved this game.  I still love this game.  It is better than any RPG I have seen since, including WoW.  

 

One question: when the game ends, does it really end? Or can you sort of keep playing the game and looting?

Exile 1 and 2 let you continue playing even after completing any or all of the three game-winning quests. The third game actually ends once you finish the final quest of the main story, though.

Oh, I should add one more note to that: Exile 1 gives you a chance to escape to the surface at one point. If you choose to go through with it, the game ends. But you could probably guess that for yourself.

I feel you. When I was a kid I only played the demos, but I played them to death. I played a ton of video games when I was young, but Exile was probably the only game that I consistently played throughout most of my childhood. Since becoming an adult, I set up an emulator and went through each game multiple times. I still go back to it once in a while; especially the part in Exile II where you can endlessly fight Empire platoons.

Yeah, only played E3 and BoE, but still love them.  Never really got into the other Spiderweb games, though I've bought a few.

Exile II was my favorite.  Exile I had lots of depth,  but the engine was more primitive (no “dungeon has been abandoned,” friendly monsters don’t fight on your side, etc.). Exile III had the best engine, and it was big, but it almost felt like they’d sacrificed depth for size.  I mean, was there really that much difference between the towns?  Maybe I just haven’t played it enough ...

 

At any rate, Exile II seemed like the perfect balance.
