I think everyone can agree that KQ7 is a geat game. However, I also liked KQ8 a lot. You just mustn't expect a King's Quest game, because it isn't. It plays in the same universe, but it is totally different. It is a third person action adventure game with light RPG elements, offering a nice mix of puzzles and action. The graphics may be dated nowadays, but the atmosphere the game creates is great. In my opinion, it is definitely worth a try.

I think these games shouldn't be sold as a package but rather separately, though I guess that would be the only way to sell King's Quest 8. While KQ6 remains my favorite in the series, KQ7 is a great game. It's got interesting and refreshing characters, great graphics and a fun story. KQ8 on the other hand is, well not very good. I honestly can't comment on the story too much becauseread more I don't remember it well and because I never finished the game. I do remember that it wasn't good enough to keep me playing with all the other flaws - bad graphics, and I don't mean fidelaty (i.e. polygon count), but rather the art direction, which was uninspired to say the least. Worst than that was just the bland boring gameplay. It was like a poor man's RPG or something - some weird mix of combat and adventure gameplay, that didn't work at all.
GoG, you're probably tied to publisher's request, but you'd do your customers a great service if you split this package in two $4.99 games.

Just look at those screenshots. One is a vibrant, lively, charming and witty adventure game of the highest calibre. If you only play one King's Quest game, it shoudl be KQ7. The well-voice-acted female protagonists make a fresh change from the usual fare. A 5 star game.
The other, well... If the dark, muddy screenshots don't put you off, add to this a horrible control mechanism,read more and pointless, dull and reptitive combat on top of a mediocre 3D adventure game.
The 3 stars is simply an average. Alone KQ7 would be 5 stars, and I wouldn't look twice at KQ8.
Ideally KQ7 should have been released alone and at a lower price point. There is no reason, anyone, ever, should have KQ8 wasting hard drive space.
