Sierra in its better days

The Good

I have always been a fan of the Quest series (since this serie would have been called 'Hero Quest' if not for the already existing boardgame), and QFG is the best in that series. The mixture of RPG and Adventure works well, and the sublime setting enhances the sense of involvement. The game plays well, but is very hard at times. With the (as always) great VGA-graphics it stands out amongst all the other games created in its time. Many consider QFG 3 the best in the series, and I agree with that.

The Bad

Throwing spears is hard and really takes a lot of practise. And the random battles in the desert.

The Bottom Line

This game is a monument to Sierra's best adventuring days. Long forgotten -- How we loved those games. This game has the feel of an epic fantasy adventure with the better features of Roleplaying games.
