The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

AGS Panel Review

"Space Quest IV.5 is a pastiche of art from several Sierra games, most notably Eco Quest 2 and the Space Quest series. In spite of this, the game shows a lot of effort and tries to tie up everything between SQ 4 and 5. The new addition of voices is something of a mixed bag: while characters like the narrator offer strong performances, others, and especially Roger with his strange, child-like voice, can be distracting at times. The update does not take into consideration most of the design issues that made the puzzles so cumbersome in the original release, such as the frequent backtracking and going back and forth between locations, though some puzzles seem to be abridged to make them easier to follow. Fans of Roger will want to play this, though the frequent backtracking to solve puzzles may be offputting to some."

I enjoyed playing this game. The music was really good and the sound effects very funny as they used those from star trek, star trek fans will love them. My only criticism (which I believe the author of the game is working on) is that it could have been better with voice acting.

I am an old space quest fan from way back, from what I can remember; SQ2 was my first adventure game. And I have to say SQ 4.5 has done ok as an armature fan game. The story leads as expected from SQ4 and drives all the way to the start of SQ5. Cutting it short Roger trys to find hes way back home to Xenon and find himself a student of the Starcon academy.
As the plot does deliver a good idea it isnt executed very well. The story itself seems dry and the dialogue very basic and tedious at times. As the idea of Roger finding his way home is good, how it is strung together doesnt give the series justice. All the events dont make much sense and a bit more random then even the original series are made out to be. The dialogue is very very very basic and almost humourless through the whole game (even with the odd references to other adventure games tossed in).
The big argument ive heard for graphics sake is about ripping through the whole game. I have to say it is a bit disappointing and takes away your imagination to see the same backgrounds from so many other sierra games. But then if you have a good imagination then this should not be a problem for some. The backgrounds are still very nice and do work well with the story. The animation through the whole game is poor, not many actions are maintained like picking up objects, activation of a switch, etc.
The music is ok, good classic music to fill a sierra games and some original (maybe), but hardly any sound effects at all, again taking away the imagination of the game.
The game itself has bugs riddled through, a crash here and there, Roger walk over the top of back grounds when he shouldn’t as you’ll find out. But most of all the puzzles though they make sense are very basic and don’t add much of a challenge to the game itself.
Overall the game itself seems much unfinished even for armature work, but if you are a SQ fan please give it a go and see what you think. It still gives some refreshment to be back in the world of Roger Wilco once again.

This game was okay. It held my interest long enough to see it to the end at least. A big part of that was your choice of music selection for the early locations which were very well done and I wished you had continued that trend in the latter parts of the game as it really helped distract me from the ripped graphics.

most of the backgrounds are used from the other space quest games.. It's still a fine game and you should download it now!
