Many reviews of this game will give you a favorable comparison to Quest for Glory, King's Quest, and other games. Alas - I didn't have the pleasure of growing up with these, but Quest for Infamy is strong enough to stand on its own so don't let a lack of nostalgia stop you from trying out this fun and thrilling title.
Something I loved right from the start is that you can decide whether to play the tutorial, but skipping it doesn't give you an in-game penalty. I would play it at least once, because it gives you a little background on how you came to be where you are, freshly arrived in what was supposed to be a temporary stop. On my first play I fell into the water, the narrative called me an idiot, and I decided to just restart.
But I made take two count! Clever dialogue, funny comments, and a downright rude narrator had me laughing from start to finish. The game is challenging and once or twice I may have consulted the forums to figure out a puzzle, but I was never overwhelmed and you cannot play yourself into a game over: there's always a way forward.
Now for the downside - you get to choose one of three classes, one of which is beyond superior in most combat situations - and even so you'll find yourself losing a whole lot of fights until you get your blocking and/or accuracy levelled up. There are also a couple spots where it's downright tricky to go where you want because the pathfinding or the cursor will think you meant someplace else - not too many, but a couple spots where the nav is going to perturb you. You'll know what I mean when you get there.
Small price to pay for this gem of an adventure. Really your character just wants everyone to leave him alone, and you start to feel his pain - or at least you would, if you could ever stop laughing!

Did you played The Quest for Glory saga, back in days? If yes, Quest for Infamy is pretty much the same game, both a point and click adventure and a role playing game. You can choose between three characters, and each comes with some exclusive puzzles and side-story. To see the whole content, you need to play the game three times. If you don't know what expect from this game, give a try to Heroine's Quest on Steam (is free), the gameplay is very similar.
