"Exile is a hybrid action/role-playing game. Travel and exploration occurs in the traditional overhead view of RPGs, while the battles and dungeons are side-scrolling mazes, gain experience and levels, buy equipment, and use magic."
Exilea game by Telenet
Exile: Wicked Phenomenon is the latest RPG from Working Designs for the Duo. Enter the world of the Templar Knights and their leader Sadler. Journey through a land beset by a horrible curse that causes people to go mad and monsters to roam the land. Duel with evil creatures and solve the mysteries of the curse to free your people from the devastating effects they've endured.
As a fan of the original Exile, this game was not going to disappoint. It sure didn't. However, it was just more of the same almost exactly like the first one. The cinemas and voices were very well done, the problem is the game became too tiresome too quickly. This is a great disc for someone just buying a Duo.
What's this? A Duo game without the poorly acted voices? Anyway, Wicked Phenomenon is another great blend of action and role-playing! The action scenes are weak at first but the enemies keep coming. The music is fabulous and really sets the mood. If you're looking for something new, this is a must-see!
This game is an improvement over its predecessor. The graphics are better and the cinemas look really good. The music and sounds are good, and the actors' voices are actually cool. The game play has-more variety and choosing the different fighters is a plus. The quest is long but seems kind of simplistic.
I loathe to say it, but Exile: Wicked Phenomenon is yet another good RPG for the Duo system. Why aren't more games like this available for other systems? The music is good, and the quest is an excellent addition to any RPG gamer's collection. It may not be spectacular, but in comparison, it's the best so far this year.

Crusader of Centy
Crusader of Centy is a great action RPG and any one that loves RPG's is strongly urged to give this game a try.
Secret of Mana
Secret of Mana is an action role-playing game, featuring real-time hack-and-slash type of a combat.
The Templar Knights return in Exile 2! Join the lone warrior Sadler as he once again must free his land and its people from oppression. Sadler's journey starts once he leaves the confines of the town. Once he is out into the wastelands he will meet creatures such as the vicious scorpions. To aid in his quests, he will befriend some fellow adventurers. Sadler will learn magic, and gain the use of mystical weapons and objects.
This enhanced sequel has music even better than the first! The cinema displays are done really well, and help bring this adventure alive for the player. The action scenes are done well, too. A good action RPG.
In a war-torn land ravaged by centuries of Crusades, a force of evil has emerged to prey on the weak and defenseless people. As Sadler, a battle-hardened veteran of the Holy Wars, you have answered the call to defend the people and rid the once peaceful land of the dreaded Masters of Evil. You and a small handful of allies must battle through a CD-enhanced landscape of deadly evil and mystical challenge!
While this style gf gaming has never been my cup of tea, it's not hard to recognize the scope of this game and appreciate it on that level. In addition, the supporting features served up courtesy of the CD are first class, although I've heard better music on CD games. Not a favorite, but still a good game for the Turbo.
There have been only a few really good RPGs out this year and this is one of them. Working Designs has established a reputation for quality software, and this disc demonstrates how good a CD RPG can be. The quest is challenging and pot linear as some of the other newer ones are. Worth looking into.
This is one of the better RPGs that I've played on the Turbo lately. The newer games have the style or game play of earlier efforts like Y's or Neutopia. The graphics are good and the bosses are cool. I like the action scenes, they break the monotony of role playing. The music is good, but not up to par with other discs.
Not your ordinary RPG. Exile is deep and twisting, exploring several lands in a long quest. The graphics are nothing to shout at, but the music is docent. The best thing about Exile is the quest, not the fine details or jammin' tunes. If you're a serious RPG gamer with a TurboCD, Exile is an excellent adventure for you.
