    I could go on and on about how much I love Kings Quest, so I will. King’s Quest is the surprise hit of 2015 so far. Chapter one is filled with so many exciting moments, fun puzzles, hilarious characters, and a unique sense of awe and fantasy. I felt like I was in a wonderfully animated cartoon based on a classic series and I couldn’t stop smiling or laughing the entire time.

    From exploration to puzzle-solving to the charming story and lovely graphics, King’s Quest: A Knight To Remember is a delightful game.

    King's Quest: A Knight to Remember is the perfect union between yesterday and today's graphical adventures. A great first chapter with a plenty of humor.

    As a graphic adventure itself, it is a modern one, without forgetting the past history and adding puzzle to the mix that some new adventure games forget, but you will not find the taste of a point and click classic. It’s in your hands to to decide if this is something positive or negative.

    Halfway between old and new, this first episode of King's Quest is a good start for a series that seemed to have been forgotten.

    A great first chapter and despite a few minor issues easily the most authentic interpretation of the graphic adventure in the modern era.

    Despite plenty of issues, A Knight to Remember isn't a terrible start to the adventure, just a rather unnecessarily tedious one. If The Odd Gentlemen can increase the overall game speed and introduce some smarter puzzles, future chapters could indeed be a lot of fun.

The writing, the art style, and the game design are all superb. At it's best it feels like playing a Disney/Pixar movie.

    This is definitely the type of game to enjoy with friends or family, brainstorming over the puzzles and laughing a the humor. My girlfriend and I have had a blast playing it together.

    The puzzles are just tough enough. And I can't say enough positive things about the art style, animation, and humour. The gameplay is varied. Adventure game players will get what they want, with a few more modern and very creative elements added that will appeal to anyone.

    Also- Christopher Lloyd (Doc from Back to the Future) as the narrator and Wallace Shawn (Vizzini from Princess Bride) as a main character. Does it get any better than that?

    And talk about good value - only $40 (US/CAN) 5 episodes + epilogue. That's only $8 a game and the first episode is a quality 8 hours.

    I (obviously!) love this game and hope that it succeed. The developers have put a lot of passion into crafting something truly creative and original and hope they are rewarded for it. We need more games like this!!!

    This romp through King Graham's past is a fun change of pace from the Bloodbornes and Witchers we've all been immersed in as of late.

    The game is gorgeous and features a fun sense of humor. There is a decent mix of puzzle solving, arcade-game antics reminiscent of Dragon's Lair, and some Tell Tale-style quick scenes. I appreciated the choices the game presented, especially at the end. As King Graham says, "There's nothing wrong with cheating a cheater!"

    If you're familiar with Sierra's past games, this is a great trip back in time with all the beauty of today's graphics.

    I would've given the game a 10, but the stalling in animation and skipping with Graham walking was a problem. Also, The Odd Gentlemen might consider a mini-map-fast travel solution to remedy having to tolerate Graham's gait when the player really has a new idea to try across the chapter's world.

    Great style and story – with a great atmosphere throughout the game. Love the humor as well. The engine can use some work since loading timesGreat style and story – with a great atmosphere throughout the game. Love the humor as well. The engine can use some work since loading times are sometimes quite long and there are hiccups when transitioning between areas. But this definitely doesn't spoil the great fun to be had with this game. Expand

    Nicht das erhoffte Spiel
    Die Originalspiele davon kenne ich leider nicht und habe sie nie gespielt.
    Da ich Adventures mag und Spiele wie "Life is Strange" sowie andere dieser Art mag hab ich dieses ausprobiert.
    Ab 3/4 des Spiel ist für mich die Luft raus.
    Zu viele Hole mir und Bekomme Missionen, unsinnges und langes rumlaufen machen einfach keinen Spass.
