Only KG game worth getting
27 May 2001 | by (Dublin) – See all my reviews

I have played a lot of kings quest games and this is the only one i liked. It has challenging puzzles and good graphics. It is hard but worth it. It is not as good as the Quest for Glory games or the leisure suit larry games, which are also made by Sierra. However it is well worth getting.
