Summary

A succesfull hybrid genre is born

The Good

Everything was perfect for its time.The sci engine was at its peak, the animation was great and the story and plot characterazation was unique. The humour shines with originality as usual with sierra's first games.The spellcasting system borrows he best qualities from d&d modules of the time and the puzzles are simple, yet elegant.

The Bad

Nothing,really. Maybe if all battles where fought "third person" style, it could be better

The Bottom Line

A wonderful foray into "lite" rpg'ing, sierra parser style.
