A great addition to the Zork franchise
Return to Zork is a nice addition to the very famous Zork
trilogy, and with much improvement in terms of gameplay and graphics. Where the first three Zork games were text adventures, Return to Zork is a adventure that plays from the first person perspective and a point and click interface, making the game playing a lot easier than before, an reminiscent to Myst. Also, the game has a lot of actions for the player to do, so the player feels like he has a lot of freedom in his choices. The game retains the atmosphere the prior games had and has an interesting plot line. The live actors that feature in the game are famous, but in my opinion they do the job really bad and not convincing at all. The graphics are much more detailed than the prior games, which is really a treat. The CD version has a great audio disc with a lot of really great music. Old Zork fans that are true to the old school gaming might be a little disappointed in the changes that have been made in these games, but in my opinion the game has made a nice step forward and it will definitely attract lovers of adventure games that like their games old fashioned, but still not antique, like myself. Overall, the game is really good and a nice step up from history and I recommend it to all Zork fans, despite the modernization.
This is a fantastic game! It has a large and highly imaginative world to explore, using the character's logic and wits. Interaction with other characters is great, and the game gives an interface so that you can threaten, apologize, and take other postures towards them. The music is also wonderful and gives great atmosphere to the game.
