So you want to be a hero? Well you've come to the right place at the right time. The world is in a state of utter chaos and it falls to you, a would-be hero to save everyone. You will face off with brigands who want nothing more then your head on a pike outside their fort; a witch who wants nothing more then your head in her stew; and a king who will have your head on a platter if you don't save his family.

This game from Sierra On-line is one of their best, although least known of their adventure games. It's old school adventure interface for this one folks, so no point and clicking here. To interact with the characters and perform actions, you need to type in the commands, ie. get torch, eat berry, etc.

Unlike most of their games however, Sierra introduced their character selection system that made the Quest For Glory series so popular. You start the game by creating a character which involves choosing a name, assigning stats, and choosing a profession. This new twist really adds to the replay value since most problems have at least 3, if not more, ways to solve them.

The other great thing about this game is that once you finish it, you can save your character and import it into the next of the Quest For Glory series and continue playing.

All in all, this is a great game. Sierra definitely went above and beyond with Quest For Glory 1. If you are searching for a new game to sink your teeth into, try this one. Just be prepared to get the second, the third, and the fourth of the series as you will most certainly be hooked. Consider yourself warned.
