I liked Kingdom: The Far Reaches. The sound and look of the game kept me interested, as did the turns in the plot. Unfortunately, skill is not a factor in this game. If you listen to what people say and have the brains to put two and two together, you'll do just fine. Just don't wander into any locations without first being told to do so or it's curtains. if you're a parent, this will wow your kiddies; If you're older and more patient, this is a relaxing change.
Entertainment Weekly (Jul 21, 1995)
In Kingdom: The Far Reaches‘ involved plot, you’re Lathan, a young wizard-in-training searching for several mystic totems, while the forces of evil are nipping at your heels. Kingdom progresses via animated video clips in a fashion reminiscent of the ’80s coin-op groundbreaker Dragon’s Lair: A given clip may be interesting the first time, but repeats can grow tiresome (fortunately, they can be cut short). Step-by-step decisions limit control over Lathan between or during clips, so while Saturday-morning-TV fans may thrill to the thought of manipulating a cartoon, older players aren’t likely to be much impressed.
