At the risk of being tarred and feathered, I didn't think I'd like The Lost Crown. I just have little patience with dialog I can't terminate, repeated explanations, slooow walking sequences and other niggles I've read about this game. Besides I'm usually a first person do-it-myself player. But you folks who love it had me curious enough to try it and now I'm also a fan!

The storyline, pacing and execution have me hooked. I've resorted to a walkthrough more than once though because I just couldn't face the slow slog back and forth without knowing I was on the right track. An interactive map would have been so helpful.

I actually laughed when I first saw the "rollerskating" walking action, but got used to it after a while. It's rare when a game can so overcome these problems with its quality otherwise. Excuse me, but I have some herbs to collect.
