The Order of the Thorne - The King's Challenge reviews and comments

Long version: https://cabinetdechaologie.wordpress.com/seances/dix-huitieme-seance/order-of-the-thorne-the-kings-challenge-le-barde-se-tait/short version: very short, not super nice, no memorable puzzles, marshes and forests where lose, a scenario without surprise or ambition, I'm disappointed by the order of the Thorne. Too expensive for its lifespan, less fun and with less content than quest for infamy of the same authors, difficult to recommend it. The suite, planned for years, is always waiting.

Classic Point-click Adventure in the style of the good old King'S Quest (not the new King'S Quest!!), with the bartenders, the Leprechaun, the trolls on the bridge, the beautiful princesses and the talking trees, where no one is killed, and all the villains in the finals are sure to repent and become good. Very Nice, very nostalgic. Exceptionally Warm tube atmosphere. The First worthy successor of KQ for many, many years. Unfortunately, the game is very short, passes for 3 hours, is perceived more as a prologue to a big adventure, than as a self-advenchura. We look forward To the sequel Fortress of Fire. 8/10

This Quest brings us back to the time of "Sierra" when King'S Quest was popular. Unfortunately, the quest is very simple and short. Do not wait here, difficult puzzles or puzzles. Almost everything in the game is built on the conversations and the right song, and the items are very small, as well as their places of use. But If you like not complex/good quests, then this game is perfect for you, if you want something more difficult, you should pay attention to the quest of the same developer "Quest of Infamy". Or the game "Harry'S Quest" from "Crystal Shard". Although-it is already heirs "Quest for Glory". PS: Hopefully The developers will not pull much with the sequel.

Order of the Thorne: The King'S Challenge is a beautiful and kind fairy tale, with excellent music, full voice of all characters and interesting gameplay. What I liked especially: the study of the characters. Each character in the game has its own character, color, voice, accent and style of behavior. Interesting dialogues, which are also fully voiced by actors. Great music, part of which our hero can play on his lute. Humor, which abound dialogues and situations. However, sometimes even the way the character speaks, already causes a smile and laughter. One of these characters is waiting for you at the beginning of the game. The Game I advise not only fans of quests, but all those who have the idea to go on a magical journey through a fairytale country seems not such a bad idea. In Our time such games comes out less and less.
