Summary

Creativity at its finest!

The Good

This is one the most creative games I've ever played:

  • The acting and characters were realistic.
  • The plot is unique.
  • Original redbook audio on the CD.
  • Nice ending well worth the time.

    The Bad

    -There is a bug in the game, when you whipe the cloth on the metal piece to shine it, sometimes the cloth will dissappear. And you need it at the end of the game.

    -This game is IMPOSSIBLE to finish without some sort of hint book or walk through.

    The Bottom Line

    I havne't played the other Zork games but when I find the time I will. I encourage you to read the manual and pre-story therein. Some parts of the game are just plain hilarious! The graphics and engine is pretty good considering its a 1993 game. Well worth the play if you have a walk through.
