A downward spiral

Episode 1 = Great
Episode 2 = Good
Episode 3 = OK
Episode 4 = Bad
Episode 5 = Awful

First off, let me say that Episode 1 is currently free, so I highly recommend everyone plays that. It's smart, interesting, and pretty long. I wouldn't, however, recommend anyone then purchase the following episodes. They're simply shadows of the first chapter, and it's simply not worth supporting developers like this.

Allow me to elaborate by breaking all the chapters down.

Chapter 1

Full of different characters, interesting puzzles, and wonderful humour. Although you're not held by the hand, the game allows you to go off in any direction and either come across any of the 3 above mentioned gems of this game. You may stumble upon a sneaky trader, or perhaps dance with a giant troll. Perhaps you'll accidentally ruin a romantic meal, or even fight a dragon.

There is so much packed into this chapter, that it could very well have been a game in and of itself. Beyond a momentary cliff-hanger ending, there's little to fault about it.

Chapter 2

This chapter takes place a few years after the first. The puzzles are, again, interesting, but there isn't as much variety in either level design and the chapter length has been halved, if not quartered.

Still, it's interesting, as it regularly offers you choices. You constantly have a feeling of needing to be careful and really think through your choices.

Again, the ending is a bit of a "Oh, is that it?", but still, the journey was a lot of fun.

Chapter 3

This chapter brings back the joy that came with the variety of environments you get to explore... but that's about it. There is wonderful dialogue, but really, only 1 choice made available to the player this time around. It was quite fun to play, but potentially even shorter than the previous chapter.

This one is more story based that the others, so there's not all that much in terms of gameplay, exploring or puzzle solving.

Chapter 4

Every chapter before this one I enjoyed to the extent that I played them through in one sitting. Even the huge Chapter 1.

Chapter 4 is the first time I simply couldn't be bothered, and it actually took me 4 attempts to play it through, despite it being the shortest chapter. Gone are the interesting stories. Gone is the humour. Gone are the wonderful environments. Hello bland ice backgrounds and puzzle after puzzle after puzzle after literal puzzle.

Honestly, you are in an ice labyrinth, solving a puzzle in a room, moving onto the next room and solving a puzzle in that one. The thing is, the puzzles aren't hard. They just aren't fun.

This is when it hit me that the developers had stopped caring about the game, and just wanted to get it out there. I had been waiting for them to release it for 5 months, and they produced the most boring gaming experience I've experienced so far in 2016.

That was, until...

Chapter 5

My goodness, this chapter is soooooo boring. I'll admit... by this point in the review, I haven't even finished it... I'm not sure I will bother. It's such bad game design. It's quite literally the exact same environment as chapter 1... but there's practically nobody at all to interact with. Honestly, everyone is gone. Perhaps it's because my character is now 77 years old, so maybe they all died. I'm not sure, the game hasn't confirmed that.

In any case, it feels as though I'm running around a ghost town, looking for... wait for it... a quest. That's right! My current quest is to find a quest. Even the main character is so bored they're seemingly having to make stuff up on the spot.

Add to this that they seemingly have dementia, so sometimes random things happen... again, I say "seemingly" as I'm not 100% sure what's going on. One moment everything's on fire. Then it's out. Then there's a green energy shield...

My mission is to find 4 keys.

Let me walk you though a few of the "puzzles" I've faced so far.

One puzzle required I enter a 4 digit code to a lock box. Each digit can be anything from 0-9. If you look around the room this puzzle is in, you can figure out 3 of the 4 numbers. One requires that you count something. Another requires that you look at something. The 3rd is a mini puzzle of itself, but although the most fun, quite literally takes a minute or 2 (if that) to solve.

So, let me be clear. You can get 3 of the 4 numbers very easily. That means that you have 1 more number to find... a number that can be anything from 0-9. So you have a 1 in 10 chance of guessing it.

So that's exactly what I did. With the other numbers in place, I just went 1 by 1 until the lock opened.

Having 3 of the keys in my possession, I then realise that I have something else in my pocket. A clue, suggesting if I got stuck, to follow it to the other side of the map.

Five minutes later, I got it! It lead to another clue! Brilliant, I was getting closer, but now needed to go to the other side of the map again!

Yet another clue! Almost there! Luckily this one's not too far away!

I get to the final clue... guess what it was! A key? NOOOO! It was the 4th number to the puzzle I solved half an hour ago!!!

It's at that point that I start randomly, yes, randomly walking through the terrain, looking for things to interact with.

I walk past a stump once, and it's blocked off.

I walk past the same stump again, and it's a house with the final key on it... but no way to reach it.

I walk past it a 3rd time, and it's a stump with a ladder in it! WHAT?

I walk past it a 4th time, and it's a blocked off stump. I then completely forget that it used to be a house with a key on it, and aimlessly wander the entire map again, searching for what I missed.

Such bad game design. These are just developers who lost interest in their game. They put all their effort into the first wonderful chapter, then didn't know where to go with it, so flushed it down the toilet into an ever spiralling journey of excrement.

Beyond disappointed.


Just finished it... and my review still stands. In fact, it looks as though my decision is reinforced that the devs just gave up on the game.

So many unanswered questions!

The game just ends, without a real ending. In the very first chapter, you see a cutscene of King Graham... It looked interesting. Well... that never happens.

Perhaps the Epilogue? But that's just cheap development.

When you buy a Season Pass, you have a reasonable expectation that you will get access to 100% of the game's future content. (That's the whole point of a Season Pass, right ?)

Here, the SP gets you Chapter 1 to 5. Great ! That's all there is to the game, right ? WRONG.
There's a so called Epilogue, which is only included in the Complete Collection.

Can buy it once you have the season pass ? No. Steam won't allow it, thinking you're buying the same game twice.

Can you upgrade your version buy throwing a few bucks at it ? No.

Is said Epilogue gonna be sold separately at a later date ? No, as far as I know (I've seen Sierra's announcement on Twitter).

So you're quite literraly locked out of any possibility of legaly acquiring the full experience if you were enthusiast enough to buy the Season Pass, but not enthusiast enough to buy the Complete Collection. Don't bother asking for a refund either. You've certainly clocked in far too many hours playing the previous chapters, like me.

Real nice, Sierra. Real nice...

After reading the reviews I find it amazing that people will simply complain about anything these days. Yes the game is easy and yes there are parts of the game you wish you could fast forward. But the true fans of Sierra and the Kings Quest series know that these games are completly faster and funnier than the originals. The game even makes fun of that fact and if you remember so did the originals. I don't know how many people playing this game remember having to type everything out in commands before everything became point and click. Roberta Williams created a game that has lasted over 30 years on the PC, someone must be doing something right. I am so glad I bought the complete package when this game first came out. Everything about this series of remakes is amazing, the graphics, the sound, the animation, the details in the stories, the references of movies and fairy tales of the past. Yes some are better then others but I believe that is true with any game. I strongly recommend this game for people that grew up with Sierra and any of the "Quest" games or people that like a game that has a story and a background. Who knows maybe just maybe Roger Wilco can make a return in something like this.

Chapter 4 is a pretty big disappointment. This is a huge break from the previous chapters and is not at all what you will expect after playing the largely free-to-roam previous Kings Quest games. Chapter 4 is entirely linear. There is no opportunity to delay or change the progression of the game. In fact, you will only need a single space in your inventory at any given time to complete the chapter. The story is forced and at times confusing since there is no time spent on background or character development. The puzzles are given one at a time and are incredibly easy. This is not a good sign of things to come for this game, franchise, The Odd Gentlemen, or Sierra.

TL;DR Play the free and wonderful Chapter 1, and leave it at that. Wait for a decent sale for the rest if you must.

I immediately bought the complete collection after playing through Chapter 1, which was amazing. I was a big fan of all the classic point & click adventure games back in the 90s (though the only King's Quest I had played previously was KQ7). Chapter 1 introduced a vibrant world, with lots of great/original characters, a perfect amount of cheesyness in the story, and puzzles that made you think a bit but never required pulling up a walkthrough (as I often remember having to do with some games back in the day). 10/10

Chapter 2, was a pretty sharp downturn. Many of the fun characters introduced in Chapter 1 were gone, and for the ones that did remain, your interaction with them was reduced to trying to feed them so they didn't starve in prison. This goal of not having your friends starve actually turned into the main plot device in this chapter, taking the game in an unneccessarily gloomy direction. The world itself was also confined to what felt like a cramped atmosphere after the openness of the first chapter; and the mechanic of having to go repeatedly go to sleep and wake up, and then have to try to keep your friends alive day after day only reinforced that feeling. 5/10

Chapter 3 was quite a bit better than chapter 2. While the story line with the princesses still wasn't quite as fun as the Chapter 1 tournament story (and the princess characters themselves were rather one-dimensional), at least I no longer had to worry about anyone starving to death. 7/10

I haven't played Chapter 4 yet, but based on the other unenthusiastic reviews here, I don't think I'll get to it for a while. My verdict so far: play the free Chapter 1 and leave it at that. Wait for a decent sale for the rest if you must.

Like all episodic games the first episode is the strongest, and also the only most people are likely to play. Quality of the puzzles then slides slightly for the second episode, and significantly for the third, possibly to account for the thin vineer of choice the games offer. Then we come to the stinker that is chapter 4. Chapter 4 is nothing but box pushing puzzles. All sorts of flavors of box pushing puzzles, but box pushing puzzles none the less. Some of them have an added flavor of press every button once as well. And a brief interlude from all the box pushing to answer four quick riddles, the third of which is the best puzzles in the chapter. As far as the story goes, it is here and there. Trying to weave a new tale in to the pre-existing storyline worked better than perhaps it should, with only a minimal amount of change to details here and there. If the puzzles were a little better, or the 5th chapter is a significant uptick in quality this is an ok buy at about the 5 dollar mark.

Edit 10/27/2016

Chapter 5 is out and it isn't any better. Fie on you Activision for reanimating the corpse of Sierra and pushing this mess out the door. I got this game via Humble Bundle and at purchase time made the decision to give you 0.00 of the sale and it was so obviously the right choice.

First chapter was amazing. You can do things in different orders and you will have a different adventure depending on the path you take, not hugely different but enough to make you think, “cool”. And its free too, so play it while it still is. The second chapter is ok and the outcome does change depend on what you choose, but... it's very short. The third chapter had all the whimsy but it was very much a straight narrative story. The puzzles are so easy it's over faster than the last chapter.

But by chapter 4 and 5 they just stopped trying. Just a bunch of mobile puzzle games beefed up in a 3D engine. And the story is confusing. A one point the boy is jealous of the girl but really, he’s just upset that he’s dying. But, in the first chapter, it seemed like he knew Graham was ill, yet he was surprised now? And the cut scenes, oh the cut scenes, they went on and on and on, and had nothing to do with anything in the game. Not worth analysing it, it’s clearly just been thrown together.
At the end of chapter 3 I was actually foolish enough to think the choices I had made in the past chapters were going to affect the end result. When they gave that old hag lady a book about how to train you dragon, I was like, oh, so if you don’t release the dragon, does that mean you will have to face a dragon later?

Although, maybe you do, but I gave up on going through the whole of the last chapter. But, from reading the other reviews, it appears there is no dragon. There choices have very little impact it seems, despite it telling you to play the game in order.

What a giant middle finger to those who bought the game this was. These people clearly could make a good game, chapter 1 shows it, so why would they just throw it away, I will never know. No one will buy it now if they have any sense.

I have played all four chapters (the fourth having just come out at the time of writing this) through and through, and let me tell you, buy this game. The incredibly captivating story, visuals, and music alongside the charming humor and heart of this game will quickly envelop you. I have played all of the original King's Quest games, but you do not need to have in order to enjoy this. Yes, there are many fun callbacks and references to other KQ games, but there's nothing crucial you need to know before going in.

The one piece of advice I have before purchasing this is to consider the complete collection, because it seems I am now unable to play the epilogue because I bought the first chapter and then the season pass. So, just be careful about which option you choose to buy.

One of the best modern "Point and Click" Adventures in a long time.
The Controls are now direct (XBox 360 works great).

It has the right amount of being silly, being funny and drama.

This game wipes the floor with the Telltale way of doing things and proofs that you don´t only have to watch games, you actually can play them.

Kings Quest back to former highs.

The fandom of this franchise are divided over this game, and it's easy to see why. The gameplay mechanics are pretty close, sticking to mechanical and inventory-based puzzles with just a dash of decision-making ala TellTale Games. The visual style is extremely unique and high-budget, but some have expressed distaste for the style. Personally, Iove it, but it's a subjective matter.

For fans, the dividing factor is the story. If you were hoping to go back to the original canon that you saw in the 80s and 90s, well, don't hold your breath. This is not a reboot or a retcon, but it's not a sequel either. It's a retelling. Each episode retells specific aspects of the original, assuming the known version is 'mostly true' but full of error. The original canon exists in people's -minds- in this game, but not neccessarily in reality.

There are countless influences on this game; The Princess Bride, Frozen, Tangled. But I think the most similar story to this is actually Ever After. In that film, the familiar Cinderella story was revealed to be only mostly true as we know it, and a more sober, modern take was presented. That is exactly what happens here. As an aging Graham tells his stories, he reveals the less fairy-tale side of them. And in doing so, the game attempts to teach you that there is more beauty in the naked reality of life than the watered-down format of a classic fairy tale. For example, by showing how love at first sight isn't as meaningful as love developed over time, or what being a family actually means.

To me, that's wonderful. If that sounds wonderful to you, you owe it to yourself to pick this up.

i loved this game. fun puzzles, lovely story, great graphics, and made me me feel very nostalgic. however, i made a mistake at the very end of chapter 4, i opened the door with the love combination, and died, before completing the other puzzles in the other room. when i finished the others, and walked on the path to the door, and tried to open it, the eye-con didn't come up. i pressed and pressed spacebar, but it was like there was nothing there. i even exited game completely, several times, and still it woouldn't let me interact with it. i had to start over from chapter 3 on a another save slot, to make sure i got the princess i wanted, then did chapter 3 and 4 all over again. then when i finished chapter 5, i wanted to show my fiance the chapter, but since it was finished, all i was able to show him was the credits, so, again, i had to open another save slot and start the chapter over again. those are my only two complaints. gameplay is easy enough, sometimes you gotta use a walkthrough. it's kind of a vague review, but, i really enjoyed playing this game. my dad passed away a year and a half ago, and he used to play the originals with me when i was little, so, this game made my heart happy and sad, but i loved it.
