ST Format (Aug, 1992)
When you see the lush introduction, you know you're in for a treat. If you are an aficionado of the orc 'n' elves genre, this is for you. It's not the most complex of plots or the most interactive of games - everything is hackneyed and a little simplistic - but it adds up to a belter of an adventure. If you've avoided this genre of game before, you've missed out on lots of classic games. While there's nothing radically new in lshar, it’s a highly polished state-of-the-art version of an old favourite. Highly recommended.
ST Format (Jun, 1993)
[Falcon 030 conversion] There are no real surprises here. The Falcon version of Ishar: Legend of the Fortress is identical to the ST version in almost every respect - only the enhanced sound and graphics enable you to tell them apart. To be fair to Silmarils, Ishar wasn't intended to be an all-singing, all-dancing version on the Falcon - it was just a quick conversion job to cash in on the machine's popularity. To see what the Falcon is really capable of, you're going to have to wait for Ishar 2 which is due for release at the end of May.

Ishar: Legend of the Fortress est un bon Dungeon-RPG qui offre une alternative convaincante à un Dungeon Master ou un Shining in the Darkness sorti un an plus tôt sur Megadrive et démontre une nouvelle fois le talent de Silmarils. Son univers riche et coloré ainsi que son ambiance sonore sauront convaincre certains joueurs en quête de bons vieux jeux old school malgré les rouages perfectibles d’un gameplay d’un autre temps.
