Its one of my favorite KQ games, and I accept as a KQ game.
But, the biggest problem was the game was so damned buggy. The game crashes easily, and when it does, it dumps all the loaded content. So when you reload your save, it has to load all the level content again.
When it works, the levels are preloaded, so it loads fairly quickly. But since its so easy to crash the game, you have to suffer the load times too often.
If someone could patch it to fix those problems, it would be alot more approachable.
