Magebane 2 is a great 3D single-player freeware RPG designed by Ville Mönkkönen, who also designed the excellent trio of freeware gems reviewed on this site - Wazzal, The Forge, and Bikez II. If the pedigree of these games is any indication, Magebane 2 should be a polished freeware gem with plenty of good 3D graphics.
And indeed it is. The game puts you in command of 3 monks on a quest to recover the holy Amulet of Yendor. Each monk masters a different school of magic, and as they gain experience from slaying enemies, you can upgrade their skills. Similar to other fantasy RPGs, Magebane 2 has a good array of magical artifacts to enhance your abilities. The gameplay is smooth, effective, and quite a lot of fun. You give orders in a pausable real-time play (similar to Wizardry 8 but not as complex), and you can slow the game down tremendously if you prefer turn-based games.
Similar to Magic & Mayhem and more recent titles such as Evil Islands, Magebane 2 is a great combination of action, strategy, and RPG genres. More spells would have been nice, but as a freeware title that is a minor nitpick. If you enjoy Rage of Mages style of RPGs or Warhammer: Dark Omen style of strategy games, check out this fun old game that offers much more play value than some commercial games.
Magebane 2 is a 3D single player role-playing game where you command three monks on a quest to recover the holy Amulet of Yendor. Each monk masters a different school of magic, and you must find a balance in upgrading your skills in order to defeat your numerous enemies. Also, you can find various items to enhance your abilities. You control your characters from zoom able bird's eye view, and you can give orders while the game is paused, or slow down the game to your liking.
Magebane 2 is a combination of strategy gaming, role-playing games and book like storytelling. You fight your enemies, gain experience, find items, and have a good time! The game is easy to learn, but difficult to master. There are also various levels of difficulty to suit your specific needs. Graphics are as good as a freeware game will almost ever have, and the music score is truly professional.
Overall I was very surprised when I played Magebane 2 the first time because of the impressive interface and overall gameplay. The only minor things that could need an improvement are a few glitches in the game story and also a better background story. The mouse controlling also has it flaws but overall Magebane 2 is very impressive although a bit difficult to get used to and get started with.
