Un fabuleux jeu d'aventure animée, plein de surprises et de clins d'œil.

I shall keep returning to Space Quest until I surface the victor, but in the meantime I thank Sierra for supplying a very good game.
Although I would prefer not to describe myself as gullible, I do have a little self-esteem left, I would willingly accept that I am an avid consumer. However, years of playing computer games has taught me the ability to spot a really bad game a mile off, however well it is disguised.
Space Quest is just such a game. Looking at the lavish packaging you would immediately think that the game was everything you had ever dreamed of in an arcade-adventure for the Amiga. Delve a little further, however, and this dream will turn into a nightmare. When I was first given the game, a quick scan of the back of the box, generally a good way of gleaning info, revealed that Space Quest was an arcade adventure with (to quote the bumph) “Out of this world three-dimensional graphics”. The game starts with a pretty poor opening sequence, especially compared to the likes of the Karate Kid II (reviewed elsewhere in this issue), and gets even worse.
