Quest for Glory creators Corey & Lori Cole to work on a game based on Terry Brook's best-selling fantasy novels was a match made in heaven. You are Jak Ohmsford, son of Shea (the novels' hero), who must seek the sword of Shannara to vanquish evil warlock Brona. Puzzles are easy but fair, with the best ones being those that require help from your teammates. Gripping story and puzzles will keep you playing to the very end. Highly recommended, but be warned: puzzles closely follow the novel's storyline, so if you have read the books, you'll likely find the game far too easy. Overall, one of the best fantasy adventure games ever made, despite a predictable plot. Two thumbs up!
