Just Adventure (Apr 10, 2008)
could say more, but it would be better just to be blunt: this game is a great achievement. The developers, Crystal Shard, have made other games with great concepts, including Meta, a game that actually takes place within an editing program and Quest Fighter, a fighting game with Sierra and Lucasarts characters battling it out a la Super Smash Brothers (downloadable at their website). As far as I can tell, this is their first attempt at something on this grand a scale, and the fact that they have succeeded so well is a testament to their talent and hard work.

“A tale of two kingdoms” is easily one of the best AGS games ever, up there with King’s Quest II VGA and Apprentice. It is more than likely to appeal to anyone who liked the King’s Quest or Quest for Glory series, as it captures the best of their atmosphere. It should also be stated that this is the first large-team game I know of that has been released, and all the team members should be congratulated for that. Cheers.

Komplexnost, nelineárnost, nádherné zpracování a kvalitní dialogy. Tak to je jen hrubý výčet toho, co vám dnešní titul, ukuchtěný v Adventure Game Studiu, může nabídnout. A rozhodně nepůjde o pouhý dezert. Dnes se servíruje opravdová specialita.
The Freehare (2007)
A Tale of Two Kingdoms was a delightful game, and a wonderful faerie tale. And even though it’s not perfect, I won’t complain too much. Adventure games of this quality are rare. Some might say otherwise, but I’ll tell you something. I’ve given a lot of games a five because I really liked them a lot. A Tale of Two Kingdoms fails in some aspects where other games succeeded, but it also has many great aspects that a lot of other games don’t have. Crystal Shard has a great thing going here, so they shouldn’t let it die over a few quirks. I liked the game, and I think you will too. It gets 4.5 carrots.
Adventure Island (Oct 24, 2007)
Als je dol was op de klassieke Sierra-adventures, zul je zeker ook genieten van dit spel. A Tale of Two Kingdoms is een lang spel, met een goed uitgewerkte plot, non-lineair en met optionele sidequests, wat het dan ook zeker tot een herspeelbaar spel maakt. Voor de echte adventure-fans een absolute must. En omdat het helemaal gratis is, is er eigenlijk niets dat je tegenhoudt dit spel alle verdiende aandacht te geven. Een 8 voor dit uitstekende spel.
Adventure Europe (Aug 14, 2007)
Written in AGS (Adventure Game Studio), A Tale of Two Kingdoms is a third person, point and click adventure that is definitely worth a try. Its five different endings that reflect on your progress give the game a good level of replayability. A bug was found during the review, where the cursor disappeared as soon as the main character entered the friendly mercenary camp about mid-way through the game, which was solved only after a few game restarts, but the updated 1.1 version must have this problem fixed. If you are fond of the old Sierra-like adventures made back in the early 90’s, then you will love ATOTK. On the other hand, if you are only looking for up to date graphics, fast moving action and easy puzzle solving then this adventure game is not for you.
