Different order of prologue events in FM towns version[edit]

Anyone noticed that in the FM towns version, Zak dreams first, then meets his boss to get the (lousy) assignment, then is back in his room? Any other version of the game known to me has the order reversed, and I wonder why they changed it. I think I prefer the original intro to the FM towns one, as the latter one is missing two effects: First, "Later that night...Zak's in bed...alone...again." before he dreams. Second, Zak awakening and and saying "Wow! What a dream! I should make a drawing of that map I saw." Any ideas? -- 14:57, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Indy 3 In-joke[edit]

In LucasArts' Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure, a reference to the alien Caponians and Skolarians is made in the Venice library.

Zak reviews[edit]

The only Zak review here (from NetJak) was just a single review and fairly negative, yet most reviews are very positive. I don't want to just remove a review I don't like, so have added two more review links for balance: the GameFAQs link contains four reviews, and the zak-site link contains further links to numerous different reviews, both for and against. - Chris (the Zak-site guy) ( (talk) 07:20, 30 June 2009 (UTC)).—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:13, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

There are several reviews from back when the game was released over at the Amiga Magazine Rack. Davhorn (talk) 08:51, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, I didn't know of those. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:58, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Neutrality of "Reception" section[edit]

The "Reception" section starts with "Most reviews, both online and in print, rate Zak McKracken as among the best adventure games ever made, but others disagree" and then goes on expanding upon mainly the "disagreeing" reviews. If "Zak McKracken" is indeed one of "the best adventure games ever made" according to "most reviews", then I would say that the "Reception" section is rather heavily biased towards negative reviews and not accurately reflecting the real reception.

Missing Info?[edit]

Where's the reference to the included newspaper that gave you clues to the game? Was this not included with all versions?Molehill77 (talk) 00:09, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
