Summary

Amazing. Amazing amazing amazing amazing amazing.

The Good

This game is one of the best I ever played, no surprise coming from a young and original development team at Bullfrog. It has the best 3D engine I've seen to that date (only surpassed by Quake, which came quite a bit later and was completely different): fast, smooth, great-looking and even works in SVGA if your computer is fast enough. Simply amazing graphics, great controls, great sound effects and music and most importantly: GREAT GAMEPLAY! I still remember searching the caverns and fighting much stronger wizards until I was finally strong enough to defeat them. The spellcasting system is innovative and well-thought out, the levels are cool, the setting is neat, everything - this is without a doubt one of the most enjoyable games I've ever played, and with half a dozen secret levels and typical Bullfrog style, how can you go wrong?

The Bad

Too easy. Otherwise it's perfect.

The Bottom Line

One of the best games ever created. Go play it now, you're missing out.
