the kings quest reboot is amazing even though i would give graphics 5 out of 10 stars. I beat the first chapter in ONE DAY!!!! It is a bit challenging and getting use to using keyboard instead of mouse when you use to play the original can be a bit hard unless you pick up on stuff quickly like i do but this game is all about logic and solving puzzles. Overall i give the entire game 7 out of 10 as activision could have done better with graphics. You play as king graham before he became even a knight or a king. You have to work on becoming a knight by working on winning a competition and solving puzzles along the way. At the moment the first chapter is free. Get it!!! You will LOVE IT. I was hooked on the series as a young kid and still hooked. Roberta Williams did a great job making this series and now it's made for a new generation by activision the owners of sierra gaming inc.

I was looking for a fun, quirky puzzle game and I think I found it. I've only played episode one though, but I still enjoyed it. I would recommend it to everybody to just give it a go.

Selling a Season Pass that doesn't include the ending of the game is dishonest.

A fun, quirky game, with awesome narration, and a nice plot line. Reminds me of older King's Quest games a lot. The first chapter is quite lengthy, with a lot of play time, and following chapters are a lot shorter. However, they are meant to be played sequentially, so if you have gaps in play time, you may forget where you left off in a previous chapter.

I'm reviewing this based on Chapter 1 only and will update it in the future when I play the rest of the chapters. I don't think I've ever had as satisfying of a game experience which didn't cost me anything. The gameplay, graphics and voice acting are all top notch. Having Christopher Lloyd and Wallace Shawn on board was an awesome surprise! Especially as a fan of The Princess Bride movie (the interactions between the aged King Graham and his granddaughter really channel the interactions of Peter Falk and Fred Savage in The Princess Bride). Chapter 1 is a full fledged game in itself that provided me with several hours of enjoyment and I would consider it to be a very generous freebie (especially given that at one time it was priced at $9.99 as a standalone episode). I'm holding out for the next Steam Sale to pick up The Complete Collection as Chapter 1 definitely enticed me enough to want to play the rest of the episodes.

Over the years, there's few MS-DOS Titles that withstand the test of Time as the Wonders of Gaming and King's Quest is one of those Games. This 6 Episodic Series was created to tell the World the Sierra On-Line has Finally Returned after a long absense. Even though its more... Cartoonish than I remember. It's still fun to play. I hope to see all the King's Quest Quest Games come back to steam again plus Mask of Eternity... Kickstarter.

As this is a Retelling of the King's Quest Games, King Graham, who's now old as King Edward, shares his previous adventures with his curious granddaughter, Gwendolyn. It is through these tales that Gwendolyn learns about the life led by her grandfather. The game uses vocal performances by actors such as Christopher Lloyd, Wallace Shawn, Tom Kenny, Josh Keaton, Maggie Elizabeth Jones, and Zelda Williams.

In Episode 1: Graham's journey to knighthood begins in this chapter. It takes place before the original King's Quest as memories of the present day Graham (who is now aged), narrated to his granddaughter Gwendolyn.

In Chapter 2: Graham recounts his first adventure as the newly crowned king of Daventry saving the kingdom from invading goblins.

In Chapter 3: Graham recounts the tale of how he met his beloved Valanice which is set around King's Quest 2.

Chapters 4-5 & the Epilogue are Coming Soon.

There are old licences that get reused as cheap cash grabs with no soul.

This, however, is one of the finest artistic tales you can get, and rivals Telltale's best work!

Do yourself a favour, at least try the FREE first chapter. So far all three out have been FANTASTIC!

Where is the gameplay?

Forget my money back, I want my time back.

(Get this game if you like clicking the 'next' button and pretend you're actually playing a game.)

* For those of you buying this out of the fondness for any of the previous KQ games and hope for any potential, do yourself a favor and avoid this crap.

* Purchased this when it was actually being sold for money... despite the fact being warned that the devs were frauds, involved with duping people out of money on previous endeavors. Even when this was being sold, they did not even include the prologue. You could not even buy the prologue separately, though you are able to buy the other chapters. What scummy business practices.

What scum for game developers...

Epilogue is only included on the Complete Collection as a "bonus". Studio confirmed it will not be sold separately or given to season pass owners.

I had such high hopes for this series after the first chapter. However, neither chapter 2 or 3 has managed to capture the same elements that made the first chapter great. Chapter 2 was lacking in story and direction, but had some good puzzles and the ability to explore. Chapter 3 had almost exclusively one room environments with simple puzzles and a perponderance of pointless quicktime events. The story was enjoyable, but it really lacked in substantive gameplay. I've already committed to the season pass after playing through chapter one, so I will continue to slog through. However, this is yet another example of why season passes and pre-orders are often bad for the customer. Disappointing.

I've just played through the first chapter of the game (so no I haven't acctually bought this yet) but found it amazing. There was even a part that acctually hit me in the feels. The game really reminded me of Telltale games but with more of a puzzle element to it. Definetly play episode 1 before buying this.

A lot of people complain about how you can't get the epilogue unless you buy the complete collection and say's that you can't do that if you've already played the first chapter for free. The thing is you still can buy it, you just need to remove King's Quest from your steam library first.
Unless ou know how to do this yourself, I've written how in the end of this review.
Don't forget to make a Copy of the files if you don't follow my guide, otherwise you still lose your progress.
What the devs should do though, is remove the Complete pack and season pack and then make a new offer that's just called "King's Quest" which includes only the final four chapters and the epilogue. This would let you easily buy it after playing the first free chapter, and let's be real, if you decide to buy this you want to know how it ends.
And any player who for some reason wants to buy the game without playing the free episode could do so anyway and just install the free episode afterwards.

Pros:
Great voiceacting
Gorgeous Graphics
Enjoyable story
Free first chapter
Nice characters
A lot of puns. Intetionally killed myself for a few of them.

Cons:
Sometimes really annoying events but you solve them eventually, just takes a few more tries than what's pleasant.
No way of skipping dialogue if you for example enter it by mistake.
The dumb way that has to be gone through for unlocking the epilogue (as described above)

How to get the full game even if you've played the free episode:
Rightclick on King's Quest and choose settings.
Choose local files and Browse Local Files.
Copy the folder King's Quest, this is the folder that has opened when you clicked browse local files, to another place, for example your desktop.
Click (in the Steam app) on Help and then Steam Support.
Find King's quest, should be clearly visible if you just finished it otherwise just browse.
Open the meny for King's Quest and choose "I want to permantenly remove this game from my account".
The free episode has now been remove and you can purchace the full game. Do that.
Install it and afterwards open the local files again like described above.
Go into the "common" folder, the one the King's quest folder is located in, and delete King's quest.
Drag your copy of King's quest into the common folder. The folder has to be named King's Quest exactly, it might have - copy added to it from earlier.
Go back into Steam and rightclick on King's Quest, open local files and choose validate game cache. It will now install the episodes you removed.
You're done! You now have all the episodes for King's Quest.

Clever reboot of one of my favorite series. Not without its problems, but overall good. Nostalgia plays a large, but not the total, part in that opinion.

Chapter 1 - A few gameplay flaws, but an enjoyable and clever story. Good length, ultimately faithful to the genre

Chapter 2 - Actually quite bad, but I recommend picking up the whole game rather than individual chapters at this point to allow you to snab the Epilogue

Chapter 3 - Very funny, great story, great gameplay. Just a little too hand-hold-y and a little too short.

A fantastic game. And episode 1, the most bulky of the bunch is out for free.

The quirky yet heartfelt world is fantastically written and presented, and you actually feel like everything you do has weight. Choices do mattress.

The game is goofy and clearly doesn't take itself too seriously, which leads to a highly enjoyable experience with great artwork even if it isn't the pinnacle of game design.

I snagged this when they were offering Chapter 1 for free and it hooked me so much I ended up buying the season pass. I've just finished Chapter 3 and I cannot wait for more!

The story is lovely and sweet; the writing and voice acting are top knotch, and I love all the choices you get to make! I'm having way more fun with this edition of King's Quest than I ever did with my original copy I used to play in the 90s on my parent's Compaq :P

My first criticism is that this is not a Sierra game
It's not in the same calibre as Kings Quest I-VI or Space Quest I-V
Games that had story, puzzle, interesting characters,

My second criticism is that this is not a good game or a fun game
It's tedious, lacking any fun, depth or engagement,
its all graphics and no game, totally dumbed down, lame
