Fantastic follow-up. Even better than the original.
24 March 2001 | by (Gansbaai, South Africa) – See all my reviews

"King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne" is another classic adventure game from Sierra, the masters of excellent gaming. It follows up to the first, and you are once again Graham of Daventry. Your Quest is to find Princess Rosella, who is missing.

In this game you control Graham with the pointer keys, and have to type commands manually. Yet, even though it's tough work, it's real fun. The only really irritating part is when you type something in that the computer's vocabulary doesn't hold and then says for instance: "What is a smart?" That sucks. The game is a huge improvement over the original. Great fun, very interesting and magically wrote. Although crude to today's graphic adventures, I rate this one seven out of ten.
