5.0 out of 5 stars Confused by other reviews... September 19, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I normally don't post reviews but for some reason, a lot of reviewers are giving this collection a one-star based on some fan-based game and are angry at the company. I thought I'd chime in with an, I guess, less biased view.

The Kings Quest series was basically the worlds first adventure game. The beginning by today's standards has a simple story. You're a knight, find three treasures. But in the telling lies some of the most creative ideas ever found in any game. Period. All the games are based on fairy tales or mythologies... the first game has a giant in the clouds, an endless stair, the witch in a gingerbread house, a troll under the bridge, and the land of the leprechauns just to name a few. Eventually you're running fromt the abonimable snow man, brewing a storm to slay a dragon and even descending into the minotaur's labrynth.

Gameplay wise, the four games are text driven, but the fifth on out uses an icon "point and click" system which makes things much easier for non-typers like me. All of the games are almost entirely nonlinear. Go anywhere, do anything at any time provided you have the proper equiptment. Now, its the norm, but at the time, it was revolutionary.

For the negatives... There are a few unalterable design flaws about the first few games. For example, in KQ2 there is a bridge that can only be crossed 7 times, and you HAVE to cross it seven times. If you cross it an extra time at any point, and have it saved... prepare to replay the first half of the game. A warning for those who hate typing though, KQ3 in particular has a very complex spell casting system where you have to type very precisely, very quickly at times. But really all these complaints are very minor and nothing an online FAQ won't help with.

Check the series out, you won't regret it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Vivendi cashes in on the classics... May 20, 2007
By jTriPPY
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Fans of the classic King's Quest series have been clamoring for a re-release compatible on today's computers for a long time. Enter Sierra (Vivendi), who's ears clearly perked at the prospect of cashing in on a zero-effort package that their loyal fans would eat up anyway.

There's not a lot of good I can say for this package, except that it's exactly what you expected, and little else. You get King's Quest 1-7, complete with a launcher that allows you to play these ancient gems in Windows XP, and you won't have to insert their respective CDs again. That's all well and good.

What you don't get is a manual, which would have been nice seeing as they didn't bother to take the copy protection out of King's Quest IV. You instead have to sift through PDF copies of all the games' literature.

Seeing as this is a relatively new release, it's ironic that it's just now Windows XP compatible, just as Vista is becoming the standard. To get it to work on XP, they used amateur 3rd-party software, which you can get for free on the internet. I experienced some annoying speech stuttering with King's Quest 5-7. If you've got the games, don't buy them again expecting something different.

For a 'compilation,' it's sorely lacking one major thing: the last game in the series. Many series vets probably don't care, but there's really no other context Vivendi could still rightfully sell this game in today, and many fans still would have been appreciative. Also, the original King's Quest has been completely replaced by the 1990 remake -- not a phenomenal loss, but far from the 'complete series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't fix all XP issues September 24, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a huge fan of this series. When I found out they were releasing all the games for XP I was extremely happy. However, King's Quest 7 has a problem in chapter 5 with the firecracker exploding when it is picked up causing an endless loop and forcing you to restart the entire game. This was only a problem on XP with the previous game and I expected it to be fixed on this release. However, when I got to that point in the game I picked up the firecracker AND IT EXPLODED RIGHT AWAY. I could not believe this. The whole point of this release was to port the games to XP and they didn't even do that properly. This was a known problem and they didn't even fix it. This makes me extremely catious of buying anything from Vivendi in the future.

2.0 out of 5 stars A must for KQ fans, but very disappointing quality October 8, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been counting down until I could get this release and couldn't wait to play all these great games again. When I got it and started playing, it was fun but the disappointment kept mounting. Little things like no manuals (you have open a file and/or print them yourself... not a big deal in itself, but come on Vivendi, quit being so cheap) and no case for the CDs (you just get twopaper sleeves) make the package look incredibly cheap and low quality. Yes, these are computer games from the 80s and early 90s, but this package could have been put together better.

The graphics are the same as the originals, so I didn't expect any "update" there. I completed KQ6 and 1 with no problems, but KQ5 is annoying because you can't go back to text (or at least, I haven't figured out how). The "music" overpowers what the characters are saying. Any of the problems you had with the previous games, such as difficult maneuvering, remain the same, which is to be expected.

Overall I guess my disappointment comes from the fact that Vivendi COULD have made a really nice package with this, added some extras, beefed it up, included more information, stuff like that. Especially with how long it took to get this going. How many times was the release date pushed back?? But no, it's a bare minimim cheapo production. I know it's only $20, but still... could have been a lot nicer.

Still a must for any KQ fan and tons of fun to play, but I am ultimately disappointed with this product.
