I found the scenario compelling and the identification with Robin very easy given the fine graphics. It is good to see one of our own home-grown heroes in adventure action, and I thoroughly recommend Robin of Sherwood to all potential freedom-fighters. The game is a little pricey at £9.95 but it is worth saving up for.
Robin of Sherwood and the Touchstones of Rhiannon, unlike many other TV tie-ins, is a superb implementation of the original. The graphics are nothing short of stunning and the plot maintains your interest throughout. I liked Gremlins a lot but rather wished I had seen the film. However Robin of Sherwood is a story familiar to everyone and this game is a magnificent interpretation of the theme. If you liked Gremlins, or if you don’t normally play adventures, take a look at this one.

To sum up then, Robin of Sherwood is an excellent game - one of the most enjoyable and atmospheric adventures I have played all year. It has good location descriptions, an enthralling plot and stunning graphics. And at £9.95 it is fairly priced. This will be one of the years best selling adventures. Highly recommended.
