Since the dawn of time, the inhabitants of Nelwë have relied on
mighty elemental wizards to keep order but the invention of steam power
has overturned this ancient social order. Disillusioned by the
introduction of new technology, certain sections of the population have
turned instead to the power of nature. Taking advantage of the conflicts
tearing apart the factions of nature and science, the forces of darkness
lay siege to the magic domains in an attempt to seize power.

the latest RPG epic by French development company Monte Cristo
that is set in the magical world of Nelwë whose civilization has
been torn apart by the industrial revolution. With two factions
growing among their world, those that embrace the ancient ways
and those that embrace technology, an uneasy tension has formed
between two totally different ways of life.
However, in the
middle of these two new worlds, the once neutral city of
Silverfall has been laid to waste by ancient and forgotten evil.
Although devastated, the refugees of this once proud city have
scattered into the nearby swamps where they soon unite to not
only discover this nefarious evil behind the attack but also to
reunite the world of Nelwë.
Gamers can choose from 4 different archetype classic races that
include Humans, Trolls, Goblins and Elves. Each race has their
own bonuses and statistics with over 110 different skills that
can be upgraded for each character. Upgrades are available when
a character levels (gained enough experience points) and some
skills are alignment based so add another 10 skills to this
total which is easily gives the player access to one of the most
in-depth skill systems available.
Upon entering this magical and technological
fueled world, players are soon forced to a crossroad, either by
accepting the old ways or accepting the new ways in order to
rebuild their city of Silverfall. Depending on which faction the
player chooses, the game will be slightly dictated by their
choice, whether using their naturalist instincts or through the
implants of the technologists that makes for some exciting and
The world of Nelwë is amazingly huge and consists of
various different gaming environments from deadly swamps to
snowy mountains and Monte Cristo have done a fantastic job at
keeping the two different worlds linked yet totally different at the
best of times.
The game is a combination of your traditional
RPG epic that successfully merges the world of magic and science
with a variety of interesting and addictive quests in order to
rebuild Silverfall. With over 30 hours of gameplay for the
average gamer that will ensure another 30 hours of gameplay if
they wish to play the other faction, Silverfall is definitely a
title that will keep you extremely entertained and busy for
weeks upon weeks.
Whether it's fighting through a hoard of
villainous creations, creating alliances with NPC's, the player
will need all the help they can get when they embark on their
adventures. Fortunately for the gamer, you are allowed up to two allies to be
part of your party and you can even create some dynamic
combinations, depending on which faction your character is
aligned with. Unlike other RPG titles, your allies are
controlled directly by the program, however there are some
options for the player such as defend, heal or attack.
As you progress through the rich gaming
environment, your character will come across a plethora of items
from armour to weaponry that can also be governed by alignment.
Although the naturalists may rely on swords and other melee
weapons, technologists have access to other mechanical items
such as rotating axes that are simply cut enemy troops apart.
For those that love multiplayer play,
Silverfall offers a great campaign Mode which allows up to 8
players to cooperate and complete in the main story line or free
Mode which also supports 8 players and allows either PvP or
cooperative play through side quests.
Graphically, Silverfall is a visual treat on
that simply looks amazing (depending on your PC configuration) with a
myriad of special effects and match that with a beautiful
cinematic sound soundtrack and Monte Christo have a winner on
In conclusion, Silverfall is a masterfully crafted
game with amazing graphics, a sturdy and entertaining gaming
that give the user a truly engaging gaming experience. Highly Recommended!
