RPG   First-person

Definitely a "return to form" for Dreamforge after a string of disappointing RPGs, Anvil of Dawn is an RPG masterpiece that's sadly ignored despite winning CGW's "RPG of the Year" award. In this first-person solo RPG, your mission is to find the source of evil warlock's power and cast it into the magical anvil. As with earlier DreamForge adventure/RPG offerings, Anvil of Dawn is not ground-breaking but will slowly draw you in with excellent writing and gameplay. The ability to meet up with the other four characters you didn't pick, and alternate endings for each character is a nice touch that add much replayability to this already solid RPG.

Without a doubt, this is one of the most underrated RPGs ever made-- and arguably a better RPG than Interplay's overhyped Stonekeep. Two thumbs up!
