From InfoWorld

"Lands of Lore is a delightful balance of all those elements that make a 3-D role- playing adventure game playable - a painstakingly well-thought-out interface, spectacular graphics and sounds, challenging puzzles and an interesting plot."

Just Adventure by Ray Ivey

"I'm a die-hard adventure gamer with a dash of wanderlust...I've always heard that Lands of Lore: Throne of Chaos was a great RPG for adventure game fans to try, so a couple of weeks ago I screwed up my courage, downloaded the patch, and installed the 1993 revised CD version of this famous game."

"Richard gives you your marching orders, and you're off! Into the woods of Gladstone to rescue a friend of the King. Very soon into your quest, King Richard is felled by a mysterious illness, put in a magical stasis by his court, and then stolen and imprisoned by Scotia (yes, it was an exceptionally bad day for the poor guy). Your goals during this game are to come up with a potion to cure the king, rescue him, and destroy Scotia. Right off the bat you're attacked by wild pigs and marauding bad guys in the forest..."

"As I said, this is a gigantic game, one of the longest I've ever played. If you get sent into a cave, it's not just a cave, it's a four-level booby-trapped, monster-infested labyrinth, each level about the size of Rhode Island. If you get sent into the swamp, ditto...I guess I didn't find it too tedious, because I never stopped playing over a period of about fifteen days..."

"...this game did whet my appetite to learn more about this ever-popular genre. I recommend it to my adventurous friends."
