Just as faithful an adaption as Citadel of Chaos, but the book it's based on is actually one of the weakest ones of the series I've come across.

Hehe, funny, I actually enjoyed the book quite a bit. The game's not half bad, either.

Ok, maybe "one of the weakest" is a little too harsh. However, a couple of things I don't like about this one:
- Unimaginative magic system: spells can't be freely used, but only in special situations; if you've got them, they always work, if not...
- The setting is relatively bland
- The game "loops": If you don't have the necessary items at the end, you can go back. Which might be nice, but none of the location descriptions take this into account. The second time, everything is as if you've never been there, with resurrected monsters and all.
