Am I the only one to have enjoyed Simon the Sorcerer 4?

I thought it was a pretty fun and descent game, perhaps not perfect but i enjoyed it. Those that like the Third game more just have a very high threshold for shitty games. Where as Simon 4 wasn't a perfect game it definitely wasn't a shitty one. I can't even stand to play the third game, it makes me sick to my head just looking at it,literally.

It's hard for me to even focus on any story when it's so uninspiring and broken up with HORRID Graphics, definitely for that time :rolleyes:...and game play that is far worse than MI4!

I got used to MI4 and Simon but...UGH! The point is I don't understand how anyone can like the Third game but disown the fourth. One game is a quick throw together and is difficult to even look at, the other is a well made game that had time put into it and is a rather enjoyable experience...

  • I haven't gotten much further than the intro yet in either game, but based on my limited experience, I preferred Simon 4 to Simon 3D.

  • ::did not even know there was a Simon the Sorcerer IV::

  • i hated simon 4... horrid game

    where as 3-d was a better more simon ish game with a rancid core,
    i personally liked it, and wished the merge to the first person woulda worked a bit better (sorta like half life as an RPG advent)

    simon 4 was a bummer... and to me, a huge let down to the franchise.
    where as simon 3d was a let down only in control, and not humor or puzzles... everything simon was put in place.. vs simon 4.. shudder

    Witness everyone the beautiful simon the sorcerer 3! Inspired after 2 classic games that are famous for their graphics and attention to details and atmospheres and environments....:rolleyes:

    .....??

    The core wasn't rancid 80 percent of the game was rancid...
    Similar to the previous installments the puzzles were better contained and coherent with the story, unlike 3D...The fact they actually spent some time on the game was nice. The butterflies, wild life and music, and environments remind of of a real game like Simon the Sorcerer 1. Simon 3 came out in 2002 the same years as EFMI and just look at it! AN insult to fans, no time put into it! How can you stand there and sit there and play that and not be insulted remotely!? It's the worse attempt I've ever seen!

    Let's look at real games made at the time that earned respect...

    Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast !

    Now the terrible HALF ASSED Simon 3....got to go but I disagree! No offense

  • i wasnt saying it wasnt bad.. just vs simon 4,
    simon 3 stayed more true to simon, and if you knew this AREA of games, tons of companies just didnt have the proper engine to pull it off.. look at kings quest 10 or whichever the mask of eternity is.. failed miserbly why? to me it had the story of a kings quest.. but the SHELL.. the core of what you see and how you interact with it.. limited everything..

    same with simon... so no.. 80% was not rot.. imo.. 80% of simon 4 was rot.. ill give you a solid 60% for simon 3d :P but not 80 lol

    and btw .. outcast.. was AWESOME... all other games just .. flopped even still star wars wise..

    Especially since it is the same engine as this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peY7s2fN18Y

    I played Simon 3. But not for long. The Graphics were okay but what really made me quit was when i needed to crouch to get an item under a bed that was not visible if you didn't crouch. What a shitty idea.

  • then you must have missed the TEX MURPHY era ..

    sheeesh... shitty idea... shitty attitude mate..

    i just happen to know that if say, it had waited for another year or two they could have used a much better engine and walla the game would rock, but you all cant get past the 3d aspect to even judge the rest of the game.

    der ketzer.. go play ANY of the UAKM series... you will DIE if you think ducking to get an item under a bed sucks...

    and tex.. that series rocked..

  • Just a very hard game to swallow, maybe I could give it another chance but I never got into the story, the last games had so much quality put into the atmosphere, feeling of the game...these graphics are "special"...

    It's extremely hard for me to become absorbed and into the third game when all other 3 games have beautiful backgrounds, characters, and atmospheres....Games with graphics like this and that have huge walk around settings tend to make me sick to my stomach, over exposure to the mediocre is not good for the soul.

    Well, atleast someone likes the game, who would have ever thought it. I'm just surprised Simon 4 gets such a bad rap. I know graphics and atmosphere, controls... aren't everything but without them you might as well be listening to an audio cassette...

    Well, peace.

  • seriously get a 98se machine or 2000, and run some tex murphy games, unless you know compatibility mode or dont have vista or win 7..

    check out tex murphy
    here no need to play you can see what i mean
