King’s Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella review

The Good:
  • Another step ahead for the King's Quest series. The puzzles are well designed and the gameplay solid
  • Allowing KQIV to hold its own even among modern adventures
The Bad:
  • Although to a lesser extent
  • Some of the same annoyances of earlier games are still here
  • Including sudden deaths and dead-end situations. The storyline
  • Which was touted as highly emotional by Sierra's marketing materials
  • Turns out to be somewhat simplistic and cliche

Our Verdict: This game is groundbreaking for many reasons. It was the first game to use Sierra's improved-technology SCI engine, to feature a female protagonist, and to offer sound card support. King's Quest IV is a must-play if you like the other King's Quest games, and worth trying out even if you've never played the others.
