Adventure Gamers
Did you ever wonder why they call this genre "adventure", when so many games are more about conversation and puzzle solving than any actual adventuring? Fortunately, there are some games that manage to create the excitement of daring quests, including a title hidden among Sierra's earliest games. Gold Rush! is a tale of cunning and bravery that takes adventure to the wild and unexplored frontier of America in the 1840s.

Power Play
Mir hat Gold Rush nicht ganz so viel Spaß gemacht, wie Police Quest II. Die Handlung ist nicht so flüssig, die Puzzles weniger originell. Doch immer wieder gibt es Gags. die das Spiel auflockern. So bekommt man zum Beispiel für unbefugtes Betreten des Rasens in Brooklyn einen Punkteabzug. Im Vergleich zu den anderen neuen Sierra-Geschichten ist Gold Rush nicht so toll. Wer aber von dieser Art Abenteuer nicht genug bekommen kann, wird ganz sicher auch an Gold Rush seinen Spaß haben.
