This game is awesome.
Yes, it is not as pretty to look at as the other ones. This pre-rendered 3D graphics... yuck! Yes, the puzzle in the middle of the game stinks. But you know what makes this game so awesome? It's Malcolm. He is the bad guy with a golden heart, a mischief maker with an overweight bad conscience. I love this game just for him. It gives the whole series anotherread more twist. Now you know, that Kallak is a dick, Brandon is a dimwitted dope and that Malcolm is the true hero. Great humor!

I had this game when I was younger. I loved adventure games (and still do), mostly those by Lucasarts and Sierra, but I quite liked the Kyrandia series, especially the second one (also on GOG!).
For the 3rd game, they left the beautifully hand drawn frames to 3D rendered one, and I really think it hurts the game ~20 years later. Still, I quite liked this game at the time but beware:
Inread more the middle of the game you have to dig items at random places in the ground at different location, and quite a few time I stopped playing because it was quite long. Think of this part as the swordfighting puzzle in Monkey Island, except no humor, dumb luck and SOOOO much time lost to find all the missing pieces.
Or maybe I was too dumb (and young) and never understood what was going on in this part of the game :P

The two first Kyrandia titles are good adventure games: the first one's puzzles aren't so great but it more than makes up for it in its fablelike atmosphere. Hand of Fate, although it drifts away from the fable setting to a fantasy mishmash, has clever humor and an excellent underlying concept that lends itself to great puzzles. Both of them have æsthetically pleasing 2d graphicsread more and tasteful music.
Then we have Malcolm's Revenge, a hurried attempt to make the "most" out of a hot, new storage format (the CD) which moves away from hand-drawn pictures and cutscenes in favor of atrocious and grainy pre-rendered visuals, and the music is horribly compressed and executed.
Content-wise Malcolm's Revenge is also the worst of the bunch with tiresome puzzles, more than one long and tedious section where you need more patience than brains, contrived social interactions and a godawful laugh track to accompany the lame jokes that you'd be hard-pressed to recognize as such. The game is fairly bad even without comparing it to the earlier parts, which is why I wouldn't recommend it unless your peace of mind absolutely depends on playing the Kyrandia series in its entirety.
