Just Adventure
Kings Quest 5 is, overall, a good game. It was groundbreaking when it was initially released, but it has lost its state-of-the-art appeal over nine years. A word of advice for people with normal hearing, though--turn your sound off.
Graphiquement sublime pour l'époque et disposant d'un gameplay d'une simplicité enfantine, cet épisode V bénéficie également d'une histoire sympathique et d'énigmes à la difficulté corsée. Même à l'heure actuelle, il reste une référence du jeu d'aventure en point and click. Dommage, néanmoins, que la durée de vie soit si faible et la version française aussi mauvaise.
