The Press Says

MobyRanks are listed below. You can read here for more information about MobyRank.
Wobei hier anzumerken wäre, daß “The Lords Of Midnight“ ein “Winterspiel“ ist. Und noch etwas: Programmautor Mike Singleton merkt im Vorwort des Begleitbuches an, daß es drei Möglichkeiten gibt, das Land “Mitternacht“ zu erleben. Sei es als Fantasy/Adventure-Spiel, als rein strategisches Spiel oder sei es, daß man ‘nur‘ die vielfältigen grafischen und inhaltlichen Facetten dieses Programms sehen will. Letzteres allein schon lohnt die Anschaffung. Eine wirklich phantastische und phantasievolle Art der Unterhaltung, die zudem der Kreativität des Spielers keine Grenzen setzt.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
One of the most involving and atmospheric fantasy wargames you could hope to play, and unusual in it's use of "landscaping" - a method of presenting a view of the terrain in all directions, giving the player 32000 possible panoramic displays.
