    King’s Quest is an imaginative journey that’s fun for all ages. There may be a few bumps in the road along the way, but each chapter is solid in its own right and worthy of your time.

    The Odd Gentlemen have done a fine job with its storytelling, though the puzzles and the ways they’ve been incorporated in the tale have been inconsistent.

    Some of the puzzle mechanics may not be quite as intuitive or engaging as previous episodes, but the finale puts some heavy subjects on the table to analyze, most notably mortality and the culmination of our own life’s work and moments, and what we’ll leave behind at the end.

    For those who have been waiting until all the entries have been released before deciding if it’s worth picking up, please know that the King’s Quest reboot is absolutely worth the time.

    It feels a little bit rushed, but it's a great closure for one of the most beautiful, unique, well-written, moving and special stories we've lived in a video game in the last few years.

    King’s Quest: Chapter 5 – The Good Knight makes some notable stumbles, but old-school adventure game lovers will find a lot to like, and the later portions provide a satisfying end to Graham's journey.

    Despite the fragmented narrative, the end result is still discreet, in line with the average of the series. Excluding some inevitable flaws, we continue to consider King's Quest one of the most successful episodic series of recent times.

Each chapter taken individually has strengths and weaknesses, but now that the tale has concluded, I will not only recommend this game to adventure fans, but encourage them to play all of the chapters in rapid succession. Having done that now, playing it through twice so I could see how different decisions made along the way impact the story, I can say that on the whole the experience is far more entertaining and cohesive when tackled as a single game without months of downtime between chapters.
