Am I the only one who did not like Tim Curry's voice acting? I find it grating. And I did not like the final location of the "bad guys."

I never played the voice version when it first came out, and it was a horrible moment when I finally heard the voice acting for the first time a few months ago.

Really bad.

It's such a shame because I really really love this game

Yes, like I mentioned in the review, most gamers I think prefer to have bland voices or none at all in their games. Although a lot people are just kinda uncomfortable with some of them, like in Tim Curry's case.

Actually, Curry I didn't mind (I'm a big fan) but the one that was really shameful was Mosely I think.

Also, I would love to get the documentation for this game on site, the comic that came with the floppy version was awesome.

My favorite graphic adventure ever! And I haven't played The Beast Within yet because I'm afraid if I do, I'll die of happiness!

I think the 1st one is the best and I liked the 3rd one too, but I don't like very much the 2nd one... but this is my opinion!

I love Tim Curry's voice acting in this game...some of the others on the other hand not so much. Each to their own though.

I'm the opposite. I think Beast Within is the best and maybe even the best FMV game, although I'll always have a soft spot for Return to Zork. Sins of the Father is second best, and I think the third game is brought down a lot by the camera and controls among other things, and once again the return of most of the voice actors from the first game.
