Summary

All right , but a step down from King's Quest 5.

The Good

Sierra (In my opinion) make the best adventure of the lot. Sierra finds a style , and sticks with it. Kings Quest 6 came with the familiar task bar , decent graphics , (mostly) bug free that you can usually expect from Sierra.

The only real good thing i can say about this game was that it was to the point and easy to understand. You didnt have to remember a great deal , just find the unusual items and try to work them together somehow.

In nutshell = Challenging - Interesting - Good to kill a few days with.

The Bad

Too childish , having stupid characters fresh out of alice in wonderland really doesnt do it for me.

Doesnt take itself seriously enough. To many in-game jokes making fun of both you (player) and the game. You cant get into the game properly when you have constant reminders that the game is considered a joke by the designers.

No King Graham! Who cares about his son? Although having Alexander rather than Rosella (kings quest 4) is more favourable.

After playing kings quest 5 , kings quest 6 is like a bad movie sequel, where none of the original actors want a part of it.

The Bottom Line

Barely memorable. Not worth more than ten bucks.
