Still is a great game, IMHO there's nothing much that comes close to the excellent design. I've been on the Yahoo mailing list almost since it was first created, two or three versions of lists ago.

When it came out in 92 (?) I was still an avid reader of game magazines and I remember that it got a bunch of less than stellar reviews, the best being 6.8/10. I bought it anyway and now it's one of the few older games I still have on my hard drive.

Great game. :bounce:

For a second I thought this thread was about the Awsome arcade/Amiga classic Badlands... :(

You remember the rating a game that came out 13 years ago received? :eek: What did you have for breakfast on 13th April 1987?

Darklands was a special case because it was such a great game with such a poor rating. But yes, I do remember most ratings a game I played for a long time received. ;)

Ultima Underworld 1 and 2 got 9.4 and 9.1 respectively for example and were probably the two best games I've ever played. :bounce: :bounce:

I've been having fun with this. I'll need to find the templers soon ... and then eventually take on the master demon. I'm not sure if I'll play it after that or start a new game or find something else to DL.
