ZORK NEMESIS jockeys around 12 to 14 in my list of favorite gmes, so it is clear that I think highly of it. The ending was, shall I say, unexpected, but OK. Although there are some references to the Zork tradition, there was no reliance on previous games. In fact, it is quite different than any of the other Zork games. There is one sort of yukky episode in it, but otherwise nothing to turn one off. Get it, play it, and I am sure that you will enjoy it. The puzzles are not all that demanding either. Enjoy!
