Medieval fantasy but with a hefty dollop of realism

The Good

Yes its medieval fantasy but its got real historical characters, and its more true to the spirit of Robin Hood than most games, books or films I've seen. It therefore has a special credibility, and it resists the cutesey and kitch excesses that some of the other Sierra games (eg Kings Quest) are prone to. It also has an interesting structure whereby the action is divided up into days, which are like episodes or chapters. I liked this aspect of it.

The Bad

I know some of you like difficult puzzles. I don't. Life is too short.

The Bottom Line

Get it. Less well known than Kings Quest, but better in lots of ways. Worth trying to get the VGA version.
