While I did like Simon’s character and some of the humor, overall I found this game to be rather disappointing. The puzzles were largely uninteresting, boiling down to basic item fetching and combining items in ways that make little logical sense. One in particular, involving a druid, is among the most nonsensical I’ve seen in a game. The world is presented in a very open and unfocused manner, making the game even more difficult. The story is bare bones and the supporting characters forgettable. The artwork is nothing special either. Overall, Simon the Sorcerer feels like a poor imitation of LucasArts.
Time Played: 5-10 hours
