    One horrible adventure gone bad.... can't really say about the graphics, apparently the programmer doesn't want to spend time to FIX the simplest graphic problem. 1. there is no way in game to change the aspect ratio, therefore playing this game in widescreen is next to impossible to enjoy. 2. in-game character's movement looks like they are moonwalking. 3. no vsync 4.

  1. The Lost Crown has a great, creepy atmosphere, and the presentation is one of a kind. Dark shadows, spectral figures, near constant mist, and chilling sounds are bound to give most folks an uneasy feeling about playing the game at night in a dimly lit room.
  2. The Lost Crown stands head and shoulders above most of the adventure game offerings that have come our way over the last few years and frankly I was saddened when it finally ended.
  3. I think the game would have been much better off concentrating on two or three well developed ghost stories rather than the dozen or so passably interesting ones that are in the game now.
