Wow, more than 6 months without a review. Again, I apologise for this long hiatus but a lot of personal and professional stuff happened (without counting the present crisis). Everything’s more or less fine now, but let’s just say that I had quite the struggle. Anyway, I decided to finally finish and review one of the games I had in my backlog for ages. I’m talking about the 1st Lands of Lore.Read More
With Thor: Ragnarok in theaters now around the world, I decided to review a game with Norse mythology in it. And although there several games featuring Norse mythology and vikings, we’re going to take a look at one of the very few where you can actually play as Thor himself: God of Thunder.
Like I said in my previous review, this time we’ll take a look at one of my personal favourite games of all times and perhaps the most in-depth game I’ve ever played, Master of Magic.
Confession time: I never really got into tabletop RPG. I’m not saying it’s bad or something. I’m simply stating that I’ve never had the patience for it. However, I do love RPG videogames, whether they’re western computer style or eastern console style. And my introduction to computer RPGs was also my introduction to dungeon crawlers and to the Dungeons & Dragons franchise. I’m talking about Dungeon Hack.
To end our Sierra retrospective, I decided to do something different: instead of reviewing another typical graphic adventure, I decided to review a mix of two of my favourite genres (graphic adventure and RPG). Which lead us to Quest for Glory (originally known as Hero’s Quest).
We can’t make a Sierra games retrospective without beginning with one of the first graphic adventures ever made for the IBM PC and Sierra’s first big hit: King’s Quest: Quest for the Crown.
