Malcolm's revenge is a fun point and click adventure game that in my opinion is the best in the trilogy. The game revolves around Malcolm the jester who was accused of killing the king of Kyrandia. In the first Kyrandia game you play Brandon (son of the king) who's mission is to defeat Malcolm and restore peace. In this game, playing as Malcolm it's your job to clear his name and teach smart ass Brandon a thing or two.
This game has all the elements of a great point and click. Memorable characters who have appeared in the first two games, magical locations, a laughable FMV intro and most of all a lead character who is rude, obnoxious and all around funny.
Yes controlling Malcolm through Kyrandia is a real joy. It's up to you if you choose to be polite to people or show your nasty side. Which ever way you decide to interact has a different outcome on the game which makes replaying it a whole new experience.
If your going to play one game in the series make sure its Malcom's Revenge
