Callahan's Crosstime Saloon (Legend Entertainment, 1997)

Callahan's Crosstime Saloon is a light, albeit entertaining, game in the same vein, and with the same engine, as Shannara and Death Gate. Despite some new innovations, including 360 degree graphics in the main window, this is also the game's biggest drawback--the puzzles, the graphics, and the interface all give this game a feel very similar to its predecessors. While this isn't necessarily bad, the subject matter of this game seems to want more out of the engine than it provides. The humor, while generally good overall, occasionally misses the mark and sometimes seems out of place. Overall, Callahan's Crosstime Saloon is a good, though not perfect entry in Legend's catalog. Unfortunately, it seems a lot like several others there as well.
