Favorite Game of All Time?
3 April 2008 | by (Memphis) – See all my reviews

This game is definitely one of my favorite games ever to be produced by Sierra. I received the Kings Quest Collection as a gift for Christmas one year, and wound up playing the Laura Bow games more than the King's Quest series. :) First of all, the writing is fantastic. The characters all have their own unique personalities, along with their own motives for wanting the others dead. The plot moves in an arrangement of acts, like a play, and you have to see or do a certain number of things to progress the clock into each Act. It's a fabulous idea, really. I wish they had put more into the series. The sequel, The Dagger of Amon Ra, is just as good, too, but has better graphics. It is missing that old style Sierra feel, though.
