I wouldn't dare to say Quest for Glory V is a bad game. There are too many people playing it and loving it to justify such a statement, and there were moments when I thought it was really fun. It is not a game for everyone, though. The plot does not move the game along, frequently dragging along when followed, and the interface can be both engaging and irritating. Music and scenery make for a very pleasing experience, and frequent interaction with characters provides a good degree of variety; but too much time is spent travelling and searching from scene to scene for needed items. Both gaming platforms have had considerable bug reports of the game as well as mixed reviews. Mac gamers in particular will feel a strong sense of "catch up" with the storyline. Despite the bugs and problems with the gameplay, though, it is a very substantial gaming experience that delivers a good deal of entertainment for your money.
