OMG! Sorry for this,but the review is unfair and very very wrong!
The guy who wrote it , he is JUST that.An arrogant, because
he says Wow Zork is a great game!!!!when he just reviews another game
that has nothing to do with Zork game!Even if it has
(i havent played Zork) it stands as alone game pretty well.Add to that
he is an
ignorant of Chtulu mythos!He doesnt even name
that name in the review!!!
:crazy: He mentions somewhere
about spells and so on
but hey what the heck this game has nothing to do with
""magic"".This is a COSMIC TERROR relative game!1 of the
few (the other 1 i know is Alone in the dark1)
that deals with this "Mythos" but i bet thats gonna appeal
to Lovecraft's work fans(that share an interest in pc's though)!

1st wrong comment and showing the -not so cared about lurking horror as an
adventure game proof- -->Wendymaree wrote: "Lurking Terror" its Lurking Horror and not terror omg


2nd Wendymaree wrote: "this one isn't really scary"
hahaha!I still remember the sequense with the rats...it chilled my spined...
U r the guy that can read the novel At the mountains of madness and not be
frightening so...no comment.U just "dont see" the horror!

3rd Wendymaree wrote: "a Gothic feel"-->This game hasnt gothic sense but
instead it has a Cthulu superc0smic
terror aura!


4th Wendymaree wrote: "There seems to be some copy protection " It seems that the reviewer
just played other game and we havent played the same game...
U SHOULD have read the manual before playing Which makes it
clear that ur a student and ur username and password for
using the pc r ("Uhlersoth",872325412) Just like the 2 fields that r
required to
login to an everyday pc in real life!
...Uhlersoth...Yog-Sothoth...

Such a pity for such a great game to takes this undeserving
rating(2.8/3) and review...
it would be at my top20 games of alltime along
with Diablo1,Daggerfall,Gothic,EnemyTerritory,Warpath,
CaseOfTheRoseTatoo,
CruiseForACorpse,MonkeyIsland,
Starcraft,SpaceQuest
...and many others!



k i think i said enough and put things straight
going to listen the great song of MetaLLica for 10000th time
yeah u know the title... k:

Actually, Lurking Horror is set in the Zork world - and as you claim, you haven't played the games, so how would you know?

Don't flame people who help out this site, when you don't even know the facts, please.

As for the only error you have justifiably pointed out - there is a typo. I will edit the review to say Lurking Horror.

Didn't Clint Eastwood say: "An opinion is like a behind, everbody's got one?"

Thanks Hellgr#nder. You should play Zork. And then come back. And edit your first post.

Edit: and off course Clint didn't have a swear-word filter so he said it a little bit different

And in case things like this happens more..

Just use the IGM for contact the admins and the person he wrote it...dont think it is really fair to burn someone in public..(even when your right)

The only error??hahaha
Yeah the only errors r 2:the "copy protection" and the lurking terror
instead horror
These r definitely errors!

But for the other things i said its just my opinion!! :blink:
for example imo this game IS very scary AND has not a "gothic feel"!
And these 2 things have nothing relative with Zork!
omg i dont know the facts!What facts i need to know to say that
this game scared me or not???Its just my opinion just like Clint said!

I thought that 1st but then again...Some1 could have read this review
before playing the game and he might have been turned down
the option to
play it cause of it!Thats why i wrote it in public!
to encourage Cthulu fans to play this game!!!!!!!!!

im not burning any1 i just disagree with the review
(simply, written words) :angel:
dont i have this right?

anyways im gonna play Zork and repost...i didnt said that Zork isnt g00d
game...

the review won't change because it is the author's opinion except for typos.
Look, the only way you'll be satisfied is to write your own review. so do it.

The admins will compare and choose the best one. While you are at it :

Other reviews.

there are some other games that need reviewing. So if you don't want to be angry about reviews on the site, Write your own.

The Thing That Should Not Be. Also happens exactly to be an appropriate description of your spelling and grammar, which can be considered a horror all by themselves.

Also, if the login in the game requires information supplied in the game manual -> IT IS A FORM OF COPY PROTECTION. Simple maybe, and easy to circumvent, but copy protection none the less.
