While King's Quest VII is a great game, I still liked part VI better. Sure the graphics are better in VII, but I felt the story line and characters were better done in the previous game. Part VI also had a more conservative and dark look to it when compared to the cartoonish King's Quest VII. Still, whether you are an experienced King's Quest fan, or a newcomer, get ready for one of the best adventures to come along since...well, King's Quest VI! This game is highly recommended and really should not be missed.
King's Quest VII is absolutely magical and without a doubt, the episode with the most magic of the saga. You will discover magnificent landscapes, strange and sometimes mysterious characters along with many riddles that will keep you occupied for hours on end.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Feb, 1995)
King's Quest 7 is een aanrader voor alle adventureliefhebbers. Mede door de vele vernieuwingen is dit een echte verademing ten opzichte van vorige delen. Het spel is niet alleen inhoudelijk goed, ook visueel is het prachtig uitgewerkt. Er zijn niet zoveel adventures die deze twee elementen goed weten te combineren. De makers van King's Quest 7 zijn er echter met glans in geslaagd!
PC Games (Germany) (Dec, 1994)
King's Quest 7 ist ein ganz schöner Brocken: über 80 Utensilien, Schauplätze en masse, famose Grafik, Sprachausgabe und ein beeindruckender Soundtrack zeugen von dem immensen Aufwand, den Sierra zur Sanierung des angekratzten Image betrieben hat. Dem Anspruch „Adventure für die ganze Familie“ wird das Daventry-Rührstück allerdings nicht gerecht: zwar zieht die märchenhafte Story sowohl das jüngere als auch das ältere Publikum magisch an, jedoch muß man bei manchen Rätseln so schnell reagieren, um zum Erfolg zu kommen, daß gerade Kinder völlig überfordert sind. Erwachsene, für die Märchen über all die Jahre nicht an Faszination verloren haben, gibt es wohl momentan kein besseres Produkt.
PC Format (UK) (Dec, 1995)
Big, bold, and thoroughly cartoon-like. King's Quest 7 is a huge improvement on its predecessors. Everything about this one suggests that time, care and lots of money has been invested. SVGA Disney-quality animation and voice actors are utilised so well, the cartoon-like theme even extending to occasional cut scenes. What does begin to crack the surface is the actual game structure. Yes, it's miles ahead of previous King’s Quest titles, but the linearity and general lack of subtlety to the goings-on makes for a rather uninvolving affair. Now, if somebody could take the visual excellence of King’s Quest 1 and add loads of cynical humour and violence...
Wer sich an der leicht kitschigen Story nicht die Geschmacksnerven verätzt und eher leicht zugängliche Adventures schätzt, wird an King‘s Quest 7 seinen Spaß haben. Die ganze Aufmachung ist höchst professionell; hier sieht man, was aus dem Adventure-Genre zu holen ist, wenn die CD konsequent ausgereizt wird. Wie sehr man sich daran stört, daß das eigentliche Spiel inmitten der Prachtverpackung »nur« guter Durchschnitt ist, bleibt Geschmackssache.
Fans of classic graphic adventure games who don't want to fight with monsters every few minutes will enjoy the game on every level. Those who are looking for something new or revolutionary will have to look elsewhere.
Adventure Gamers (Sep 05, 2003)
Those looking for something new or revolutionary will have to look elsewhere, as this game wasn’t either of those even when it was first released. And yet, even for all its lack of ambition, it maintains a sense of fun and wonder that is hard to find in today’s adventures. It’s a true flashback, and a solid—if not stellar—entry in the King’s Quest collection.
So let's get the pig out of the barrel (not that I keep pigs in barrels or anything): I didn't like Kings Quest VII. It was boring, had a horrible interface, was laughably easy, had sort of cheesy voice acting, and it turned a strong-willed female character (Rosella from Kings Quest IV) into a ditz that acted like she belonged in Clueless. All an especially hard blow after the wonderful Kings Quest VI, which is definitely the best of the series, if not one of the best adventure games ever released. But don't believe this opening paragraph (well, more of a second paragraph). Read on, young man and/or woman, read on!
