First 3D King's Quest game
Released in 98, this game jumped on the bandwagon of 3D, a choice that did not really go so well, in all actuality. It is not that the game looks ugly or is unplayable, it is just that it no longer sports the sleek and beautifully hand drawn backgrounds the series used us with. The story too seemed to have to take a step back, to somehow accommodate the new look and the new feel of the game. Thus, all things considered, you are going to really feel a bit underwhelmed at times, especially if you played the older games in the series. In terms of interactivity, the game still sports the recently introduced simplified point and click interface, with changing cursors and no need for additional command. This indeed makes it rather easier for any player to sink into the game, and allows you to spend less time, frustrated by controls. But, at times, you will feel lost, and not always because of your incompetence. The puzzles, in their full 3D environment might get obscured by the camera or by the rather un-suggestive design of some background elements. So, make sure you arm yourself with a good walkthrough before you attempt to play this one, as it is bound to stir some trouble, unless you treat it with caution!
