Summary

A worthy closing of the Kyrandia Saga!

The Good

Malcolm is the most curious character I ever played in an adventure. The funny outfit and his humorous comments a legendary. Also the other characters in the game are extraordinary characters – only Brandon (the hero from Kyrandia Part I) is a bore. Kyrandia 3 has one of the easiest interfaces adventure games ever seen. The game has very good graphics and in-game-music. But my favorite is the imaginary audience. They laugh like in a sitcom over your funny attmepts to solve the (not very hard) puzzles. The greatest design idea is the possibility to adjust the way who Malcom talk to others. In no other game you can order your character to lie.Unnecessary to say that you can’t die in the game! I want more games like these.

The Bad

There are some puzzles who are not quite logical (for example the puzzles in prison or in the jungle). Also the game is too short. That is a great shame, because it’s the best adventure I ever played.

The Bottom Line

This game is a must play for every “serious” adventure gamer. Don’t miss this great game!
