This isn't actually a fav oldy topic, but more of question.

Until today I didn't even know they made a SQ6..I had never heard of it..cept one I thought was cancelled..and I definately never saw it for purchase.

Unfortuantely I know it isn't abandonware because of Sierra's stubborness. Then again all their new stuff (aside from a select few games) Suck so I guess I don't blame them for protecting their old GOOD games.

Anyways..anyone played this..is it any good? This coming from a big Sierra Adventure fan and SQ fan.

I wouldn't say it sucks... but it's not really up to the other ones. I think that is in part why they canceled sqVII. allthough it might have had some good movies or voices- I wouldn't know (russian semi-pirate publishers of mid 90s had no honor and would put anything on their compilations).

There are some very funny moments, but somehow it doesn't have the 'magic' of previous Space Quest games.


Having said that, if you're a SQ fan, then I recommend you track it down and buy it (possibly from eBay). It's still a good game. k:

SpaceQuest.net doesn't have the games for download anymore - just demos and documentation.


But the demo should give you a good idea of what the game is like k:

the key word being fans (non professionals). allthough both sq 0 and 2.5 weren't bad... lets wait and see.

Ah, never knew of that site. Going to check it out right now.

Just finished Fate of Atlantis yesterday..so another adventure wouldn't hurt.

Edit:
Downloaded, checking out.

I have seen that website before too..had forgotten about it. It's sad how VU forced ESA to make them remove downloads. It makes no sense that they dont sell them..yet dont want people to play them.

I even emailed them complaining and saying how I will no longer support VU games or anything affiliated with them. I know it probably wont even be read, and if it is noone will care..but I felt the need to do it anyways..so I did.

:P

Checking out the demo now, so thanks for the info.

Edit2:

Ah..definately different feel from the old ones..the voices are a nice touch..but I could foresee that Narrator as becoming very annoying after awhile :P

I forgot about those 2 - I thought they were great. :Brain:

I must play them both again.

I loved the whole idea of 2.5. His hair is different, and he has a big 'conspiracy' style adventure. Then (if I remember rightly) at the end, he gets sent back in time as if the whole adventure never happened. It is hilarious. :w00t:


Thankyou, A1s, for reminding me of the fan games. k:
