Good adventure game but only for those who are familiar with the gameplay introduced in the second part. Some things were improved over the prequel but it is still difficult to get into the game. After the first couple hours I could not figure out how to progress any further and literally I got stuck. A walkthrough helped to get on the right track and finally, after so many years I managed to complete the game. And I enjoyed it.

Thank you, admin, for adding vers.1.1. I haven't got far enough to encounter bugs, but I'm one of those people who only discovered this game a couple of years ago.

When I returned to this I remembered, 'ah, it's that game by the designers with a peculiar fascination for anthropomorphic lions'. One is often left thinking like what the f_ck! I agree with another commentator here: the creators of these games are people I'd very much like to meet. I wonder if they're actually furries :)

There is something rewarding about being able to level up a character and experience different classes - even though, from what I hear, the thief far more interesting (yes, I have already found out exactly why it's better to play as the thief: it's not just a matter of points, and certain characters say things to each class and open certain avenues that are closed to the others... I'm trying to word this as best I can without spoilers, which could ruin a game like this).

To those returning to the series who are frustrated by the previous games (as I am) there is a remake of QFG with multiple options for getting through them there darned corridors.

Towards the end, when you defeat the demon and it leaves Rakeeshas body, and all your friends gather around It keeps freezing in the same place, where the monkey crawls down, over and over. How do I get past this? I'm so close to the end, AHHH!
I've literally restarted it over and over, tried from different saved games, etc.
It freezes in the exact same spot.

No scope for a thief? This was the best one for a thief! It was so awesome and hilarious.

I really liked this game. I remember missing Africa so much when I moved on to part 4 with its dark autumnal atmosphere...

Rather shallow game.

There is simply no scope for a thief in this installment of qfg..:(

I played the whole series over and over again. This is the most epic adventure ever! It has one of the most living world. I can't tell how much i LOVE this game! The game can be played as wizard, fighter, thief or paladin. Some puzzles change with different character and you can go places other characters won't.

I love to play Q 4 G, and I have finish 6 times with 3 different character and ability. I thing will more fun if I play Q4G III with my previous character
