Excerpt: Throughout a long and storied history ranging from the old glory days of leading the computer industry to its eventual descent into flaming ruin, the graphic adventure genre has traditionally been dominated by Sierra On-Line and LucasArts. Certainly other companies occasionally gave it a go, but none ever managed to recreate the lavish production values, legendary creativity, and all-important sales figures of the Big Two in their prime.
Excerpt: The third book of The Legend of Kyrandia series, The Legend of Kyrandia, Book 3: Malcolm's Revenge, reunites the same production team as the previous games in this series, but somehow the weaknesses of the earlier games seem to have grown in this sequel. There is a good attempt at a thematic twist in the last of the books—the villain is now remade into a hero.
