Off-Site Reviews

My travels took me through some 140 locations and so detailed and well written were their descriptions that I even enjoyed wandering into a few dead ends. As Yaggra had said in the introductory text, "A degree of risk does exist, but any goal worth achieving is made the sweeter by the pleasure of the chase." This was an observation with which I had to concur and my pleasure at reaching the end was tempered only by the realisation that there were no more places to visit or problems to solve.

The Jim MacBrayne games
It can't fairly be said that these are terrific examples of their kind; they're flawed in several respects on the design front. But they're solidly put together, and nostalgic old-style IF buffs just might enjoy one of them; Holy Grail is probably the best of the lot, but there's not much to distinguish them. For most of us, though, the main function of Jim MacBrayne's games is to offer some perspective on where IF has come.
