The Ishar trilogy is one of the top RPG series ever released on the Amiga, and Ishar 2 is widely regarded as the best of the three. For those who like stories with lots of unpronounceable names, here's the plot in brief. The land of Kendoria is peaceful again. Krogh, offspring of Morgoth, has been defeated and the fortress of Ishar has become a safe haven for all of Arborea.
As the new ruler of the Ishar Fortress, you maintain law and order, and enjoy many years of peace and prosperity. Unfortunately, though, that's about to come to a strange and sudden end. The old and wise alchemist Jon sends you message warning you of a forthcoming danger to the land of Arborea, which marks the start of your quest to save Ishar, and all of Arborea.
The control system is very user friendly, with its simple icons. The screen is split up into different sections with a picture of all the characters currently under your control, as well as the main game window where all the action takes place. Movement is controlled from a compass, and there's a map of the area that can be called up at anytime. Ishar is a great RPG which is very instinctive and easy to get into. Your mission to save Arborea is a bit vague which may annoy some people, but this just gave me a greater sense of freedom in the game.
The graphics are surprisingly detailed, and the sound does its job well Ishar 2 is possibly the best game of its type on the market at the moment.
