IMG Reviews Simon the Sorcerer II
12:58 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG's latest review is of the imaginative and annoying adventure game Simon the Sorcerer II, from Epic Interactive. Here's an excerpt to whet your appetite:

The designers of this game had humor in mind from the start, and it is a genuinely witty and self-aware story most of the time (Simon constantly speaks to the screen (you), and refers to the script writers and such). StS2 purports to be a send-up of classic fairy tales and it accomplishes that goal while dragging numerous references to pop culture along with it. Fast food, Back to the Future, the A-Team, C.S. Lewis, Walt Disney, the Arthurian legends, and Shakespeare are among the many subjects treated with the utmost irreverence. That list is by no means inclusive. Even the manual for the game is funny and abusive, setting you up for your experience in the game. If you like one-liners, obscure references, sarcasm and spoofs in general, StS2 will appeal to you.
