A Great Escape!
29 July 1999 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

This game may be a little old, and maybe even outdated, but it still remains one of the most impressive and downright entertaining computer games to play.

The storyline is lighthearted (with a few dark undertones thrown in for good measure), the characters are all lovable, and RETURN TO ZORK really gets you laughing sometimes. For a game that was produced in 1993, I would have to say that the graphics and sound are still very noteworthy, even by today's standards.

The plot is just wonderful. It has you wanting to see what unfolds next in the story of the Great Underground Empire, and is very addictive (which, in this case, is a good thing!).

RETURN TO ZORK also receives kudos for its musical score. WOW! It really moves you. Even the cheap MIDI files are impressive! The musical score for RTZ is by far one of the best for any computer game this decade.

The only area RTZ falls short in, are a couple of extremely-hard-to-solve puzzles. If it weren't for a cheat guide, this game would have taken me at least a year to beat -- and I'm not kidding. The most ridiculous of these puzzles has to be one of the three mazes, which are absurd, because there is no secret to solving just have to figure out how to get through (this could take a lifetime). You'll DEFINITELY need a cheat guide to get through things like this.

All in all, though, RETURN TO ZORK is a game that makes you come back for more, and leaves you wishing you lived in that truly bizarre and comical world. And if you need further proof: I have played and beat this game about six times since 1993!

Highly recommended.
