An amazing game based on an amazing book series
This game is all about the story. Based on the fantasy novels by best-seller author Terry Brook
(the same was done with the Discworld
series by Terry Pratchet), the story follows Jak Ohmsford, son of Shea, on his quest to find the sword of Shannara and travel to each of the Four Lands to recover the four magical artifacts
that are needed to repair the sword. The story based on these epic series of novels in the combination with fantastic point and click gameplay make this game really remarkable. The puzzles in the game are not too difficult, but still interesting and challenging. A warning, though. The game is strongly connected with the books so, if you've already read the books, the puzzles might be a bit too easy to you. The game is beautifully designed, with great sound effects and appropriate music. Overall, if you're a Terry Brook fan you will appreciate this game for its great interpretation of the books but the puzzles will be too easy, and if you are just a fantasy lover
the game might inspire you to go and check out the books to reveal more depth and beauty from this great magical story.
The Plot of "The Sword of Shannara" is a straight, fascinatin, non-revolutionary but solid and beautiful work of art. You play Jak Ohmsford on his quest to defeat and destroy the evil magician Brona. You will face many riddles and a cool party of up to 6 members. There are some adult twists (death of a "beloved" character, final-stage choice consequences) and lots of really corny, passionate drawn backgrounds, making this game a fine piece of fantasy-game in which you can lose yourself.
