Added DiffLines:

** The CD version also added puns to some of the death messages in order to make the game feel less morbid and violent. Compare the scene where Graham is eaten by wolves:
-->'''Floppy:''' It's not a pretty sight.
-->'''CD-ROM:''' Poor Graham. It's a dog-eat-dog world out there!

** This actually isn't all that ridiculous - it's pretty well established that Graham does not kill, or at least only kills in self-defense [[spoiler:(see: Mordack)]]. All the other enemies in the game are either technically killed by something else ([[spoiler:The genie kills the witch, the yeti kills itself by falling off a cliff]]) or dispensed of through non-violent means ([[spoiler:Dink, the harpies, etc]]). The snake wasn't doing Graham any harm, so it wouldn't make sense for him to kill it.

** It IS possible to notice the hole in the boat - but only if you use the "look" command while standing ''right next to it'' (if you're even a hair off position, it won't work) if you want Graham to notice it. Good luck figuring that out the first time around!

** The most egregious of these is the boat puzzle. At one point, you are stranded on a desert island, and you need to take a boat to escape. The boat has a hole in it, and it will capsize and drown you as soon as you set sail - thus, you have to seal the hole first. There is absolutely no way of knowing this until you die.

** Also, the glowing treasure in the temple. Try to get it, and you'll be [[SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere sealed inside forever]].

On the downside, the voice acting is sub-par, often managing to be the vocal equivalent of DullSurprise having been done entirely by Sierra staff members (although it introduced the designer Creator/JoshMandel as King Graham, who has become [[CantUnhearIt the definitive voice of the character]] in many fans' opinion), and many of the puzzles are [[SolveTheSoupCans maddeningly difficult]] or [[MoonLogicPuzzle nonsensical]], leading to many potentially {{unwinnable}} situations. And of course, there's the much reviled the Owl, whose very mention still causes fans to [[BerserkButton froth at the mouth]]. Let's just say it hasn't aged well.
