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 Josh Mandel 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.

* PointOfNoReturn: Once you're beyond the sledding ridge, you'd better pray you have everything you need, because you can't go back. Also, [[spoiler:when you're sent to the dungeon, you better get that cheese first time around, because otherwise you are screwed]].
** These are also all over the place. Another example would be that you can't go more than one screen into the forest without finding yourself trapped, so you'd better have the requisite items at the time. Of course, each of these situations has the opportunity of making an item LostForever.
