Simon The Sorceror 3D review
A great circa 2000 game finally hits the market

The good:

The game is different from every other adventure in that it's HUGE; you can wander around a very large virtual landscape looking for the clues you need to solve puzzles.

The bad:

The graphics are tomb-raider style, because the development took place so long ago. I was also hoping to hear Chris Barrie's voice for Simon again, but another (probably less expensive) voice talent was chosen.

Summary:

Overall, this is a game that any fan of the previous two STS games, or big adventure game buff, probably wants to own. It's not a heavily polished game in every respect, nor will it floor you with astounding visuals. But it's got a certain charm, which is occasionally broken by Simon's apparent ire towards the wizard Calypso (every letter from him is inevitably bad news), and Simon's occasional disregard for life or kindness.

But Simon was never particularly sweet, anyways. More of a Dursley than a Potter, I'd say.
