Als je van Amerikaanse humor houdt en goed Engels spreekt, dan lach je je ziek bij Freddy Pharkas. Het spel zit namelijk vol hilarische dialogen. Verder is het een prima point 'n' click adventure, in de ware Sierra-traditie.

Ganz ehrlich: Wer auf total abgedrehte Adventures steht, dem macht Freddy auch heute noch eine Menge Spaß!
Adventure Gamers
Freddy Pharkas is an entertaining romp in the Wild West with something for nearly every adventure gamer. At its core a light-hearted satire in the vein of Blazing Saddles, Pharkas succeeds on a number of levels. With hilarious writing, a compelling story and one unforgettable manual, it is an amazing example of how collaboration between two different designers can create an adventure that appeals too all people. Provided that they don’t mind a few outrageous puzzles, I recommend Freddy Pharkas, Frontier Pharmacist to any adventure gamer wholeheartedly.

Die witzige Westernparodie rund um den Apotheker Freddy ist nun auch auf CD erhältlich. Sierra hat sich mit der CD-Version des Western-Adventures nicht allzuviel Mühe gegeben. Zwar liegt wie gewohnt eine DOS- und eine Windows-Version vor, außer dem geringfügig verbesserten Sound unterscheidet sich die Silberversion jedoch nicht von der bereits etwas älteren Diskettenversion, bei der nur der „Multimedia“-Aufkleber fehlt.
