Scary indeed
16 August 1999 | by MazzantiSee all my reviews

Sold as proof of Roberta Williams' abilities as an horror writer (when she's best known for her fairy-tale King's Quest series), in fact it proves just the opposite. Much as I admire the lady, my downstairs neighbor could have devised a better plot. Technically it's poor, even when the technology wasn't still outdated. I don't comment on the puzzle-solving because there is none. What I find really scary is the tons of copies it sold, when even the just-for-effect Phantasmagoria 2 was much better. And this from someone who doesn't consider particularly picky as far as computer adventure games come.
