I grew up watching my brother play these games and as soon as I was allowed I played them myself. I rarely find a modern game so well done. This game, like many of Sierra's products from the golden era, have great replay value.

This is the best game ever. BUT
When I played the '92 version in the '90's it crashed near the end at the brigands hideout. Then I downloaded it a few months ago from the internet, and it crashed again. Is this a fatal error in the programming?

This is one of the greatest games I have ever played. This was the first open ended rpg (at least that I can Remember) ever made. I must say though the game had many more possibilites in the text orientated game rather then the point and click version. This is why "Puriest", as the article says such as myself perfer the original version not "Just because". I mean you had to think what to ask about rather then having it appear on the screen for you.

I REally enjoyed the game. I found it funny and very interesting. The only thing i found wrong with the original, was that it was only compatibal with the older versions of windows. I tried to load it onto my windows xp version and was unsuccessful. Otherwise, i thought that your ability to make choices yourself, your responses to each new challenge and inviting humor were very good. I thought it was advanced for it's time. I have since played better role playing games, but still think that it is a great classic.
