King's Quest - Chapter 1: A Knight to Remember
Top Critic Average
Old-school adventure game mechanics make a great return to form in King's Quest: A Knight to Remember. This tale is funny, beautiful, and challenging enough to make up for a few plodding quests and frequent load screens, and it maintains its personality from start to finish, sprinkling the first episode of its story with happy highs and tragic lows.
A comfortable adventure on a noble path, but wearing spurs of a squire instead of the crown of a king.
A great first chapter and despite a few minor issues easily the most authentic interpretation of the graphic adventure in the modern era.
One of the best examples of an aging formula done right by modern standards. The engaging characters, challenging puzzles, and entertaining story arcs make it easy to recommend
'A Knight to Remember' is hampered by some significant issues, but shows promise
I wish King's Quest: A Knight to Remember was a bit more taxing, but I loved everything about it. If this series does well I hope we get to see the adventures of other family members like Alexander, and additional areas like the Land of the Green Isles. Right now though, I'm going through withdraws for the second episode already. Move over Telltale, there's a new adventure king in town.
Where episodic gaming has usually left me nonplussed, King's Quest has had an enthralling effect, leaving me in eager anticipation of the next chapter.
From exploration to puzzle-solving to the charming story and lovely graphics, King's Quest: A Knight To Remember is a delightful game. It takes some of the Telltale formula, then adds in a lot more action and problem-solving and combines that with a story that isn't grim or terrible, but instead remains fun, funny and engaging. Old fans and new will find something to enjoy here, in a genre that's all but disappeared from gaming. As the saying goes, "The really don't make games like this anymore." But they should. I can't wait for Episode 2.
A warm, witty adventure game that focuses on giving you control, while telling a good story. The return of King's Quest is only let down by some bizarre technical issues.
Despite plenty of issues, A Knight to Remember isn't a terrible start to the adventure, just a rather unnecessarily tedious one.
