Just don't know about this one. Sometimes I hate it, and sometimes I go back to it because of its atmospheric qualities and the characters. Again, just too damned hard without a book or a stategy guide or something. I knew a kid who caused his parents' phone to get turned off because of calls to Nintendo counselors on this game. Nowadays, I guess the guy just blew his brains out by now. If you want puzzle solving, and want to stay sane, get Shadowgate. Again, however, it's fun to run around and try it once and awhile, but don't count on solving it. 5 out of 10.
