Summary: Sierra was by far my favorite gaming company of all time. I remember playing the Space Quest, Police Quest, and Kings Quest series back in the late 80's and early 90's on my IBM XT computer with a CGA monitor (which I eventually upgraded to a 486 with a VGA monitor). The games would come with 20+ disks and I remember the anticipation while going through each disk to install the game. The Sierra games required thought, imagination, and a sense of adventure.

Summary: I bought these games for a bit of nostalgia. I must admit, they were not what I remembered from my childhood - especially in that they are all short games, with the first few installments being extremely short (hours, maybe). The sixth game is a disaster in terms of continuity with the previous installments. Some of the puzzles are Sierra level difficult throughout various games. With all that said, why five stars? I still had a great deal of fun playing these.
Summary: The ol Space Quest series started with the Amega and Apple computers and PC versions came out later. This is a collection of their previous releases in their original format, in other words they were too lazy to upgrade the graphics to at least XP standards. The last releases are in that SVGA format. Basically the games are all parities on science fiction movies and TV serials. The puzzles are loony and require out of the box thinking or screwing around.
Summary: I grew up playing these old Sierra games (King's Quest, Police Quest, Leisure Suit Larry etc.) and this one was probably my favorite between all of them because it was the first Sierra series I had played and I had never seen anything like it at the time! A must for those of us who had an IBM in the 80's! You'll relive some funny moments!
Summary: These install and work from the launcher on widows 7. There is some rainbowing and graphical glitches on some of the games. You need to run it in 256 color and it fixes it. Does not have ega sarian encounter but I like the VGA version better.
