Summary

It could have been the best of the series.

The Good

Besides being a funny game with a great story it had one thing that no other QFG game had... John Rhys-Davies. Thats right, direct from Raiders of the Lost Ark, it's Indy's friend Sallah as the narrator. Along with that theirs a great atmosphere and a sweet arcade style combat system.

The Bad

BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS BUGS

Count the number of times I types bugs. Multiply that by a million. Thats how many bugs are in the game. I may be exaggerating, but not that much. The game would have been great without them. I CURSE YOU ERROR 42!!!!

The Bottom Line

If your a big quest for glory fan get the game. If your not swimming through the sea of bugs may not be worth it.
