  1. The gameplay is inviting, the characters are charming, and the challenge level is just right, while the inclusion of a strong female character directs the game toward all age and gender groups.
  2. It offers breadth, scope, and a quality graphical presentation and level design. The game offers plenty of challenges, tempting the more avid gamer into raising their ratings even after completing the fields to fulfill their quests.

    It admittedly feels a bit unbalanced in a handful of places, but overall it's a well laid-out package.

    The levels are really fun - if you can get poast the slightly troublesome controls. Stick with it. [Winter 2001, p.54]

    It's fun for a while but it has no replay value.

    Initially, the game is very enjoyable (albeit not very challenging), but quickly becomes virtually unplayable by about the 4th level. TheInitially, the game is very enjoyable (albeit not very challenging), but quickly becomes virtually unplayable by about the 4th level. The gameplay is terribly clunky and, along with the level design, frequently and actively works against the player, forcing them into cheap deaths and damage via unresponsive controls and poor overall design. Lady Sia, to me, suffers from a strong misunderstanding of the difference between well-balanced and intentionally implemented challenge, and rough, frustrating difficulty due to unpolished and flawed design.
