Personally I think Fairlight is overrated. Don't get me wrong, I think it is a great game, but look at 'Knight Lore', same 3D technique, the graphics are better looking and... it has sound! And before that there was the awesome 3D 'Ant Attack'. So Fairlight wasn't even a novelty.
Truth be told that the plot is great and that surely makes it a great game, but why is it leaving so many other great games left in the shadow? I think Fairlight should be in everyone's top 10, heck even top 5. But when looking to the WOS best game Chart: third place, second place... first place??

Nevertheless, a great game to play, and a landmark of the spectrum era.
