Summary

I agree with him, 14 years later and I still play this game sometimes

The Good

This game was great! I think I only have the EGA version of it but it was still a very fun game with great drawings and animation. Im not exactly sure what it is about this game but it just had a really cool atmosphere to it, like the king's quest series but with some action and some elements of an RPG like exp and HP. Unlike most of the Sierra-Quest games, I though this one had a higher replay value than any other one mainly because the class selection drastically changes the course of events.

The Bad

Any complaint I have about this game would be due to the technological limitations of the time.

The Bottom Line

I would describe this game as GOOD. A DARN GOOD GAME :) Its a classic, in a day such as ours, when GPU's are pushing 10 trillion polygons a second using 48 gillion colors, this game is still just as fun to play to me... and it only used 16 colors
