Top Customer Reviews
Yes, the new King's Quest game is gorgeous! The animation, art, music, story, are all superb. So why am I giving this a mere one star?? Simple, the box says this is the "Complete Collection". Take a look at the amazon review and it says "The Complete Collection gives you full access to all 5 chapters plus an additional playable epilogue exclusive to The Complete Collection". This game was originally released digitally, but now we can play the whole thing on a physical disc! Huzzah! ONLY, you can NOT! Produced by Sierra, yet owned by Activision Blizzard Inc. the company seems to have done their best to make sure you don't discover their dirty little secret until too late.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURE I HAVE PROVIDED
Notice how in small print it says "*[asterisk] Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4 available on disc. Includes chapters 5 and Epilogue through digital download."
That's correct. This "Complete Collection" includes 4/6 or in other words 2/3 of the game! The last two parts (chapter 5 and the Epilogue) you have to digitally download! Now, if I wanted to digitally download the game, I would do so WITHOUT purchasing a physical disc!! So, why did Activision do this? Other than they're @#!%^ it appears that they did this as a form of DRM. That's right, very very sneaking DRM. You see, maybe you can loan this game to friends, but how will they play the last two chapters? You can not unless you go online and have to download the game. Sure, you could say "well, that's not a big deal" but it IS a big deal! Activision is again relegating you to basically "rent" the game. In principle, Activision could remove the game for whatever reason, and that is that. Your PS4 breaks, get a new one, you only have 2/3 of a game. Am I being extreme? Perhaps, but again, for those that pay a premium to get a physical copy, especially one that says "Complete Collection" we expect the game to be complete. Consider most any other "complete" games that have been released. For example, The Witcher 3 -it includes EVERYTHING on disc! ALL the DLC, everything is ready for you to play! Just insert the disc. This is how it should be.
IN SHORT: Activision is basically lying to you. This is NOT the complete collection on disc. This is 2/3 on disc, and 1/3 you have to download. I would not have purchased this had I known. I hope my warning saves some of you. The only way companies will stop getting away with this crud is if those of us that like physical discs refuse to purchase said crud from companies that give us incomplete games while lying in our faces by saying that they are the "Complete Collection".
Above all else, humor. Games are meant to be fun and King's Quest has some quirky family approved humor wove into its dialogue, puzzles, and storyline. Embrace the bad puns. They grow on you.
It is an adventure game. You should know before purchasing that there is no real fighting in the game. A few battles take place but it's a matter of pressing the right button at the right time or using your wits to get out the 'physical' situation.
Graphics: Very whimsical and colorful. Personally I like my games to look like games so I like the drawing feel versus the 'realism' so many games feel they need. There are nice touches throughout. Each section felt unique but the overall feel was cohesive. That said the 'world' is SMALL. It doesn't feel small initially, but if you take a moment to consider it you'll realize there really isn't much to it. It's supposed to grow with future chapters. (Then again, Xenoblade was huge and I felt like it wasted my time as there just wasn't enough to do in all that space. Bigger is not always better.)
Dialogue: I thought the voice acting was well done. Even the standard knights felt like they had personalities. Character interactions was well done. Oddly some of my favorites parts involve conversing with someone who spoke a nearly incomprehensible language.
Music: I love the tracks.
Puzzles: Truthfully, these were pretty easy but most are as enjoyably absurd as in some of the old games. The game still managed to kill me off in amusing ways a couple times and a lot of the solutions made me smile or laugh aloud. There are multiple ways to solve the first chapter and that creates some minor story changes as you play. (I do mean minor. Perhaps there are more long range effects but none that I am aware of at this time. All the paths seem to lead to the exact same end at this time.)
Storyline: It like an epilogue telling a prequel. You have old King Graham telling his granddaughter about his adventures before he became king. At first have a narrator and a peanut gallery was a bit distracting but much like bad puns, they grew on me. Just as the first chapter starts wrapping up you start to sink your teeth in to the tale of a youth struggling to become a knight. He was looked down on, taken advantage of, yet made friends, proved himself, learned from his mistakes, and dealt with loss and betrayal. The journey is laced with humor throughout so don't expect anything too serious... at least not for more than a few minutes.
All in all it's a light hearted game with with some meat. I've enjoyed it so far and found it to be a welcome break from grinding in RPGs.
