Sort of revolutionized the PC gaming scene
4 August 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Before POLICE QUEST: OPEN SEASON came out there were no games like it. First of all it is from 1993 when most people were still using Nintendos and playing stuff like Mario.

This one was a clever, puzzling game that actually used realistic graphics. Later on games would use special effects with voice-over -- this actually used recorded video. Actors were hired, then rendered into the game.

The quality isn't that great by today's standards but still a lot better than most videogames from back then.

The game also set the stage for MIST (etc.) -- it's a puzzling game where you can pretty much do whatever you want, but are forced into doing certain things to advance. E.g. the game opens at a crime scene investigation, you can interview anybody you want, pick up evidence...but you have to talk to a certain person to advance, otherwise you just get stuck.

It's a hard game and doesn't work on my Windows XP system. It worked on my Windows 98 and I still have the CD -- unfortunately, I don't have the computer anymore.
