"Perhaps I am being too harsh. Other players may well disagree with my assessment of the puzzles, and there are many components that make up a good game. Shannara does have wonderful graphics, an involving and absorbing story which I enjoyed, and it even provides a significant moral dilemma, which I enjoyed less you will have to play the game if you want to know why. And, despite my feeling a little let down by some aspects of the puzzles, which I am prepared to concede might be partly due to my expectations being too high, I still found it to be an entertaining game and well worth playing." - Quandary
