I admit it. I thought this was an earlier version to the Xbox game. I was wrong, but still pleasantly surprised! When you first start out, you'll see an intricately detailed book with the title of the game on it. Play the into first! The graphics are impressive, and the voice over and music will lure you into the game. You better start playing or you may get hooked just by playing the intro over and over.
Don't panic when you first start the game and you see no text. Just keep hitting left-click until a list of replies pop-up. Answer each of them, you'll know you have done this when the guy gives you something. Then right click until the arrow icon becomes a hand. Click on Quickthorpe (your character) with the hand, it will turn into a rotating fist.
Turn speech off. Turn text on...Ooo! Love ye olde English script! And the colours! Look at the details on the medieval houses. And look at the Renaissance wear! Very detailed. Although I think Quickthorpe would freeze in that outfit...Wait, is that water I hear? Birds? Yes it is!...Houston, we have ambiance!
So, where do want to go first? How about that shack atop the hill? Maybe East into the forest? Or let's go to the bridge and ask the hunter if he wants to strip down to his skivvies and join you in a little dip... Ah, classic adventures humor--a must for a good adventure game! But this game isn't just good, it's a 5! The graphics are rich and vibrant, the text in the boxes is legible; and very detailed; you hear sound coming from the background, the control is an easy, the humour will put a smile on you face, and you get to save games in up to eight slots.
The puzzles involve finding things and then using them in specific points in the game. There are a number of ways to die, and if this didn't have a save feature, this would really hurt its score. However, it does have a save feature, It has ambient sounds, it has awesome graphics, its replay is superb...Ah...Why aren't you downloading yet?
