Overall, KGB is one of the finest graphical adventures available to Amiga owners. Its ease of use and humour elevate it from being just ‘very good’ to ‘flipping excellent’ and it must surely rank as a must buy for all serious gamers.
If you look around at the world of popular books, movies and TV shows, you will see it full of political thrillers. Spies, secret agents, intrigue, murder, cover-ups, corruption – staple fare of popular culture. But where are the games? Floor 13 seems about the limit of it, really. So there is a massive hole in the market for this sort of thing, and this particular thing is just the sort of thing that will nicely fill said hole. I love adventures, but the Dungeons And Dragons stuff and all its clones can get a bit samey after a while (although there is an occasional gem like Legend) and the comic book style of Monkey Island can be a bit wearisome as well. So an adventure based in the real world with a bit of (fairly) current affairs thrown in is a bit of a godsend.
If it were a bit freer, it would be an absolute classic but as it is, it is just utterly fab.
Die letzte und aufregendste Neuerung betrifft das Gameplay selbst: Trotz aller formalen Ähnlichkeiten zum Wüstenplaneten haben die Programmierer von Cryo den Strategie-Anteil zugunsten vielfältiger Aktionsmöglichkeiten gestrichen. Tja Genossen, wenn Ihr nicht ganz linientreue Anhänger der etablierten Adventure-Schmieden wie Lucas Arts und Sierra seid, solltet Ihr mal einen Blick durch den zerrissenen eisernen Vorhang wagen – es wartet ein spannendes Grafik-Abenteuer, dessen einziges Manko die gelegentlich etwas nervtötenden Nachladezeiten sind.
