AGS Panel Review
"A solid remake of the original that tries to improve on its predecessor in nearly every way, often succeeding. At the time of this rating, the high combat difficulty (even after it is adjusted) may turn away some more puzzle-oriented players, but those who can deal with it will find an enjoyable remake here!"
10 people commented on this game (newest first):
This game is AMAZING once you get into it and start learning the lay-out and culture of the city. It begins to feel like you are in a real place living your character's life rather than playing an adventure game. You can get so distracted just taking in all the sights and activities the city has to offer that when the story events start happening they almost seem like intrusions sometimes...Like :"An Elemental is doing what, where?! I don't care!!! Leave me alone! I gotta go pick up my new shoes today!!!"
It is very much though a game for go-getter gamers. The game is not going to lead you through the story: The player must actively seek out the story to get on board with it:
(Or you can just go shoe shopping or many other little sidequests and easter egg hunts along the way...)
I would easily rank this game as high as Heroine's Quest even though it ranks much lower on the AGS Awards win list for some reason...I'm guessing some blockbuster came out the same year and won everything
Super - fantasy - game.
The combat is still a challenge (which is nothing new from the original) but now you can't just spam the keys once your stats get high enough (Though with enough time and patience combat does become a breeze).
If you didn't like the original then this remake won't change your mind, and anyone looking for a pure Adventure game (or with a dislike of open RPGs) will probably be disappointed. But if you have fond memories of the Quest for Glory series, or want to try something alittle different from most of the other games on here, then Trail by Fire is a must play (i am already onto my third playthrough and planning my fourth).
