Emerald Isle is a brilliant adventure, buy it at once.

Emerald Isle is a game which takes all the best aspects of adventuring and moulds them into a huge, yet detailed story which will have you engrossed for hours. It brings a fresh friendliness to the scene as not only is the vocabulary helpful, the structure is most open and even a beginner will find progress easy, interesting and rewarding. If only more adventure houses could achieve Level 9.

Emerald Isle is a lot less daunting than other Level 9 games and I'm afraid that for a number of seasoned Level 9 fans the program will be something of a disappointment, though of course one must remember it costs rather less.

At £6.95 Emerald Isle is competitively priced and offers a style and sophistication hard to beat. If you're already a committed Level 9 fan you're unlikely to be disappointed, even if it is easier than usual. I'm still trying to read those damned foreign inscriptions.

All in all another offering from Level 9 of the high standard we've come to expect.

It's enjoyable high-quality adventure but, unfair though it is, Pete Austin and the rest of the Level 9'ers have led us to expect nothing short of lunatic brilliance from their team. C'mon, Pete, how about a bit more punishment for adventurers in the next one?

Dommage que son plumage ne se rapporte pas à son ramage : belles cartes, belle boîte mais jeu ultra-classique. Ile déserte, forêt tropicale et grosses mygales. On a vu mieux. Tout débute dans la jungle. Dur, vu le système d'orientation en vigueur.

The drop in price of this game corresponds with a drop in quality. Admittedly, this drop is only from excellent to average and emerald Isle is still a lot better than most other adventures.
