Power Play
Obwohl technisch hier und da ein paar Abstriche in Sachen Grafik und Sound gemacht werden müssen, hat Legend of Kyrandia auf dem Commodore-Flaggschiff nichts von seiner Faszination eingebüßt. Die märchenhaft schöne, witzige und spannende Story fesselt den Adventure-Fan von der ersten bis zur letzten Diskette (immerhin neun Stück). Gerne sieht man aus diesem Grund über ein paar kleine Puzzlepatzer hinweg: Einige Rätsel sind nämlich nur durch Probieren zu lösen.
CU Amiga
When you think that it's competing against the likes of Monkey Island 2 and the soon-to-be-released Indy IV, Kyrandia certainly has a lot to live up to. The graphics match up fairly well, as does the sound. The puzzles in Monkey Island tend to be slightly harder and therefore add to longevity; Kyrandia can probably be solved in less time. The playing area is immense though and will take some time to explore fully; given Brandon's ability to only carry 10 objects, it is advisable to find locations to stash goodies that will be needed later.
Amiga Joker
Von Atmosphäre und Humor her durchaus mit Core Designs Fluch vergleichbar, gefällt Kyrandia alles in allem doch eine gute Narrenlänge besser..
Hésitant, ce premier livre de la trilogie des Kyrandia, qui marque les débuts de Westwood dans l'univers impitoyable des point'n click, mérite que l'on s'y attarde, bien que l'on se sente parfois très seul devant ses énigmes. Ni mauvais ni excellent, The Legend of Kyrandia : Book One reste une approche encourageante de la part du studio aujourd'hui défunt, en attendant sa suite, autrement plus convaincante.
consiglio The Legend of Kyrandia, titolo tanto ambiguo quanto coraggioso nella sua struttura, posto nel limbo tra capolavori indiscussi e schifezze immonde, lì nel mezzo, sorge la terra di Kyrandia...
