This is one of the most complete and satisfying role-playing graphic games I have yet seen. There is quite simply so much to do, so much to explore and so much to experiment with.

Ultimate first introduced us to realistic 3D graphics but sadly not a lot of game was bolted on to them. Now, thanks to The Edge, that gap has been filled. Fairlight features very high quality graphics and a good tune at the start of the game. While the game is fun to play the desire to see the other screens makes you want to solve puzzles to get nearer the end effect. Controlling Isvar and manipulating objects is very easy and using a bit of brain power it’s not long before you are well and truly hooked. It’s hard to say whether Fairlight will appeal to arcade fanatics but I’m sure there are few people who could actually say the game is useless! The Edge have come up with a very good arcade adventure with 3D graphics that should rate in everybody’s top 10

Fairlight is definitely a superior arcade adventure and one that will keep you puzzling for a long time.

This is still a classic and I for one will be playing the expanded version from now on. Then again, I got my copy for free, and I doubt even I would fork out again for all that hey-nonny-no nonsense, however hum-able. [Test 128k version]

For all its faults, Fairlight is still extremely playable. The adventure is so absorbed in the action that the problems pass virtually unnoticed.

Fairlight beschert ungetrübten Spielgenuß; als Nachfolger von Alien 8 wäre es vielleicht geeigneter gewesen als Ultimate‘s eigenes Programm Nightshade.

Superb graphics, realistic animation and fiendish puzzles that can be solved with a joystick all add up to create a superb arcade adventure that is only slightly spoiled by a marked loss of speed when more than one monster appears on the screen.

Ultimately, Fairlight was the game you chose from your collection to show off the abilities of your Spectrum to a visiting Aunt and Uncle. This game was truly a technical marvel that pushed the quality of gaming graphics forward to the next level and provided the player with a rather good adventure game to boot.

Les jeux d'aventure/action à la Knight Lore abondent. Aucune originalité ici, armé d'une épée vous évoluez dans des salles infestées de gardes. Graphismes et animations sont corrects mais pas extraordinaires. Les bruitages sont très convaincants.
