This is my final review for the King's Quest reboot... I've mostly avoided making a review for this chapter because its short, and doesn't really add much to the ending that Chapter 5 didn't cover. It's mostly 'stand alone' so I'll judge it on its own, and it has no impact on my overall score for the entire series see Baggins Review - King's Quest Chapter V.
Gwendolyn goes on her first adventure and meets a new friend.
Not much to say here, its quite wimple little adventure. Gwendolyn is trying to fill her Grandfather's hat and shoes.... She has a long awy to go.
The adventure conists mostly of a hunting trip to find infamous Yarblesnoofs (a creature that Merchant of Miracle referenced a number of times in previous chapters). Her…

King’s Quest Chapter V: The Good Knight. Versions Reviewed (PS3, PS4 and PC versions)
- 8.5/10 for the chapter.
- 7.8/10 for the entire season.
I continue my review series, this time reviewing the final chapter of the series Chapter 5: The Good Knight.
The chapter tells the final story with choices made in the earlier acts all coming together for the final time. This chapter comes full circle, returning to locations of the first chapter now with 70-80 years worth of time having passed by. Because this chapter makes callbacks to the first chapter, the story isn't nearly as 'stand-alone' as previous stories. But it one of the strongtest stories from a narrative stand point in the series. Like the previous chapter this one …Read more >
King’s Quest Chapter IV: Snow Place Like Home. Versions Reviewed (PS3, PS4 and PC versions)
Final Score: 6/10
I continue my review series, this time reviewing the penultimate fourth chapter of the reimagined King’s Quest. The chapter tells another more or less 'standalone' story with choices you made in previous chapters having an impact. This chapter like the second goes back to a somewhat more claustorphobic destination in the location of the Ice Palace/Frozen Castle. However, the fairly long first half and introduction does allow for some more open outside visuals, although much of the locations are places we have seen already. While there are elements that require knowledge of previous events, the story itself still remain…Read more >
King’s Quest Chapter III: Once Upon a Climb. Versions Reviewed (PS3, PS4 and PC versions)
Final Score: 8/10
I continue my review series, this time reviewing the third chapter of the reimagined King’s Quest. Again it pretty much stands on its own merits, and is a great game in its own right. After the first chapter this is the second to have a pretty clear and stand alone story. While some elements do require knowledge of previous events, this chapters world feels more expansive and less claustrophobic.
The basic premise is that Graham looking for someone to fill in the lonely spot in his heart, travels to the Enchanted Isles to Kolyma after the mirror announces to him that a princess is to be saved. He travels to tower that was…

King’s Quest Chapter II: Rubble Without a Cause. Versions Reviewed (PS3, PS4 and PC versions)
Final Score: 7/10
I continue my review series, this time on second chapter of the reimagined King’s Quest. Again it pretty much stands on its own merits, and is a great game in its own right (though in some ways it does rely on knowledge of the previous chapter, and your choices in that chapter).
Again I'll choose to avoid major spoilers. The game begins with a young King Graham looking into the mirror and seeing a vision of an Older Graham, being chased by a dragon. This appears to be foreshadowing but its relevance is as of yet unclear. The story takes place some point after events of the prologue in the first chapter (and this serie…
