I guess before I get started I should say i’m prejudiced against Sierra adventures, in fact I have a natural dislike of any point and click adventure games in which it is possible to die (gimme Lucasarts all the way baybee!)

With that said, Space Quest 3 isn’t too bad at all.

The game carries on from SQ 2. Having escaped in a cryo pod from Vohaul’s asteroid he is picked up by an automatic garbage ship.. and so our next adventure begins.

SQ 3 was the first in the series to use Sierra’s AGI system, which among other things added mouse control to the game. It makes playing quite a bit easier now that you dont have to rely solely on cursor keys and the parser (which is still present BTW).

This is the first Space Quest game that I enjoyed playing, and although it retains many of the previous games flaws (such as an annoying habit of killing you with little or no warning) it improves on them in many areas.

    The best game of the series! If you like any of the Space Quest games, you’ll just love this one. Maybe a little bit short and easy, though.

    his game totally rocks. It was the first Space Quest sold in my area, and thus the first one I played. I couldn’t get enough of this game.

    this game,and the series is simply ingenious. (no offense tho :P) Most of the people who don’t like these games simply can’t play them without a faq…
