Summary

A hilariously fun game.

The Good

Terry Pratchet writes some of the funniest dialogue in any computer game. A highlight is the conversation with the court jester. The puzzles are true to the book series, and the solutions make sense (at least if you've read the books). The graphics are rather cartoony, but well done.

The Bad

The biggest problem with this game is it's awkward interface. Often, you spend as much time trying to get the character to do what you want as you do deciding what you want him to do. Also, there are occasional problems with graphics distorting and making it difficult to play.

The Bottom Line

A very original game, extremely enjoyable, but with some technical problems which interfere with gameplay.
