More than a game
20 October 1998 | by EagleeyeSee all my reviews

For the video sequences in WC Prophecy being one of the main reasons for creating these intense atmosphere of the entire game, I just have to say : well done. I always hurry up to finish the missions just because I´m so excited to see the next video sequence. To the makers of the WC movie : install joysticks in the cinemas :-), add gameplay to the movie and start up a new era of entertainment.
