I played this game before

Summary: It's an awesome game. I played it for hours and was just in the beginning. There are nights and days while on nights some establishments are open (the guild) In addition, you can choose to play one of three characters so there's much more playtime there as well.
Summary: ...although it leaves room for a Quest for Glory 6 to be inserted. QFG V is my third favorite game in the series, which is actually pretty high honors, considering that QFG I was a perfect adventure RPG, and QFG IV was even better. (If only it didn't have so many bugs...) QFG V moves into a new realm of gameplay by changing to the action/RPG genre.
Summary: I am so glad that I was able to finally finish the Quest for Glory series. I feel I have overspent for this title. If it was maybe $15 cheaper I would give it five stars. The game arrived in its package in pristine condition and played somewhat well on my modern computer. I would have to say that without the patch to make this game compatible with windows 2000 based OS families, this game would be dead. I played the game for at least two years.
Summary: Quest for Glory V: Dragon Fire the fifth and final part in a series of role-playing adventure Quest for Glory. The game's plot is based on ancient Greek myths and links together the history of the first games in the series. The gameplay is a pseudo 3D rendered backgrounds, that looks pretty nice.
A good, albeit flawed ending to the Quest for Glory series.

Summary: Quest for Glory 5 was a long time in the making. After the incredible, yet horribly buggy Quest for Glory 4 ( which was all but unplayable upon release on floppy), Lori and Corey Cole went on to work for other companies and other products. A few years later they were asked to come back and complete Quest for Glory 5. This game is a culmination of the hard work of three or four years, two engine changes and an excellent attempt to make everything work properly.
Summary: A lot of people didn't like Quest for Glory 5 when it was released, but I love it. Yeah, the first time I played it, the controls were different than the previous four games, and it took some getting used to, but once I got used to it, I was in love. It's got a nice, tie-up-the-loose-ends-happily-ever-after feeling about it. And of course, it's got all the famous QG humor...including the bad puns and the moose head.
Summary: This sadly was the end of the QFG series, and to be honest it didn't sell very well, too many people didn't like the new graphics that came with it making it look like a final fantasy game. However all Sierra was doing was updating it and being creative, and they came up with an amazing end game!
Still worth playing and finishing this golden age series

Summary: I played and finished QG1 (back when it first came out as Hero's Quest!) to 4 upon their original release many, many years ago. By the time, number 5 came out, the game industry had moved on, and I'd moved on with it. Baulders Gate and other far bigger RPGs had taken over and Quest for Glory seemed sad and out of date in comparison. And to be honest, the 4th game annoyed me. I liked the fact that your character became more and more famous.
Summary: To be honest, I was quite disappointed with this game when it came out. How could you end such a great series like this? Having played through the Quest for Glory series again just now several years later, I have come to a somewhat different perspective. The game had some inescapable strikes against it from the get go, and all things considered, is a fine ending to the QfG series.
Summary: Quest For Glory 5: Dragon Fire is not merely the end of a great series, but the end of an era for the entertainment compant Yosemite Entertainment. As a great fan of the series, "Hero" has journeyed from the town of Spielburg to the fog-ridden lands of Mordavia, Raseir, Fricana (not in this order) - and finally the village of Silmaria. In a game of this ilk, graphics plays second fiddle to storyline and gameplay, and it is in these two areas that Qfg5 excels.
