Summary

Great Surprise!!

The Good

I didn't get a chance to play this game until a couple of years after its release. At first when I looked at this title I wasn't impressed. The advice "don't judge a book by its cover" is relevant with Robin Hood. The depth of the game was wonderful and like other sierra adventures of its time it was filled with wonderful music and blessed with a well written plot. The characters were well crafted and often I found myself thinking I was there. I got really wrapped up in Sierra Adventures back then and boy do I miss them now.

I want to say something about the music of this game. It is rare for a game to have music so good that it can carry a game. Had Robin Hood had fair or poor gameplay I still would have played it for the excellent music. Instead all three were excellent thus making a classic

The Bad

It has been a few years since I played it and today I am only left with the good memories. Few games are that lucky with me.

The Bottom Line

A classic.

One of the top ten adventures of all time.
