Heh. Humorous review here. I'll admit that I've never heard of the game, just like you speculated in the review, but I came away curiously intrigued. From the screenshots, it looks like it has some zany text that, if nothing else, mindlessly entertains. Well done.

Being as old as it is, it does require an emulator like DOSBox to run on today's PCs. I could probably hook you up if you'd like to give it a go.

Zany review, but seriously Will... if you consider this to be the best thing you've ever written, then you've got a long ways to go. Half of your humour relies on the in-game writing via your pictures. You also don't really explain your 10/10 except to insinuate that funny stuff is golden.

A fun review, don't get me wrong, but stop whining about having lost the ROTW.

Two posts and a blog entry hardly constitute whining. It'd be whining if I made a topic demanding the other staff overturn an internet contest.

I'm afraid the ego is part of the moniker, my good zippy.

If you're going to give a game a 10 it might as well be the original Space Quest, VGA remade or otherwise. This brings back memories by the bucketful.

Seriously? I grew up on PC gaming and Sierra's adventures were a major part of it. I lagged behind on my old DOS rig for years while everybody else started using Windows. I don't know what I would have done but for Space Quest, King's Quest III and heaven forbid, the Black Cauldron.

Laugh... for me, when Sierra brought out King's Quest, and then all the other quests, that was the beginning of a quality nosedive of adventure games. And I know that's an early call to make, but I am 33 and lived through all this.

When I was little, Sierra's adventures had a graphics window and you typed your commands, looking out of your eyes. The puzzles weren't arbitrary, either. Then KQ came out for the Apple II (which I had) and the PC (which was in its uber-primitive infancy.) That was the beginning of the 'you move around the screen but also type commands' model. I can't stand how they used it. All the ridiculous deaths, stupid stuff like you could fall to your death by stepping a pixel off course... To me, Police Quest is a game which does absolutely nothing but test your ability to read the game's manual and adhere to it.

Relatively speaking, I have the least anger towards King's Quest (probably 'cos it was pretty traditional) and KQ III, which I found kind of charming and funny. But this is, basically, a whole area of gaming I can't stand. So that's why you'll never see me review any of these games :)

Honestly, I loved Police Quest 2. It's still one of my favorite Sierra games and I replay it every now and then. Those were the good old times I tell you.

I am shocked and appalled, bloomer. Surely you at least loved Quest for Glory? Everybody loves Quest for Glory!

...please tell me you loved Quest for Glory.
