YMMV / Quest for Glory I

  • Demonic Spiders:
    • Saurus Rex. No loot, and very tough.
    • Trolls are pretty tough too.
    • Brigands if you fight them early on with non-boosted stats.
    • Cheetaurs. Can take a LOT of damage and inflict alot with a double claw and bite attack.
  • Goddamn Bats: Regular sauruses, goblins and Mantrays are not overly tough (though Mantrays fly and are harder to hit in combat, and are immune to Dazzle and Calm) and appear frequently. Also, the sauruses and mantrays don't give any loot.
  • No Export for You: Actually averted and inverted. There is a very rare Japanese release of the EGA version for PC-98 (that works in ScummVM!), playable in either English or Japanese or with subtitles, and with a fully functional Japanese parser!
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The general impression of the VGA remake. While the new hand-painted backgrounds and environments were quite beautiful, many players of the original game were turned off by the digitized sprites in the battle scenes, which were animated using clay models (thus the radical change in the design of the Saurus and Saurus Rex; the original designs were impractical to render that way). Other features were also cut without explanation (such as Fred's cave in the secret passage), and a new mechanic was introduced where running out of Stamina during a fight would instantly kill you. The debate over whether the text parser or point-and-click interface is superior was also a significant point of contention, with many fans preferring the freedom of the former.
