King’s Quest review

The Good:
  • A remarkably clever tale about an unconventional hero, from his character-building tournament days through his achievements as a young king to his last hurrah
  • Splendid, richly-hued graphics
  • Varied locales
  • Amusing dialogs
  • Unforgettable characters
  • Expert voice-overs
  • A panoply of diverse, creative challenges
The Bad:
  • A few of the early Quick Time Event sequences are frustrating
  • Some of the Ice Palace puzzles are visually dull and repetitive
  • The exact way in which choice-based gameplay leads to certain results is often ambiguous
