Here is the remainder of a long list of selected accolades my Review of Phantasmagoria Memorial Web Subsite received over the years. These words of praise are representative of the overwhelmingly warm reception this site has experienced by many grateful Internet users. Additional high-profile comments (and awards) may always be found on the Review's Title page. The listing below has been divided into two sections: the first for people directly involved in the production of Phantasmagoria or who run a significant Internet gaming and/or directory Web site (as at December 1997), and the second for enthusiastic fellow players of this game not already mentioned in the first section. My heartfelt thanks goes out to all my well-wishers. I could not have made the Review as comprehensive as it is without your support and encouragement.
"Your Website looks very nice."
- Peter Maris, Phantasmagoria director and co-founder of American Interactive Pictures.
"...you have obviously spent a lot of time and effort putting your site together. Your content is very well organized and presented very nicely....Thanks again for putting together such a great tribute to our game. It makes us all feel just a little more appreciated."
- William R. Shockley, Sierra On-Line programmer. (Web site)
"Holy crap! [Your's] is one of the coolest sites I have ever seen! Love it!"
- SierraMan, who provides Sierra On-Line game solutions and news. (Web site)
"Detailed Website for Sierra On-Line's mysterious, beautiful, and controversial adventure game Phantasmagoria. This site includes all the hints, cheats, and walkthrough information you'll need if you get really stumped. More interesting, however, is a detailed account on why this game has been banned in Australia! If you haven't played the game yet, this site will certainly pique your interest."
- New Riders' Official World Wide Web Directory. Indianapolis : New Riders Publishing. 1996. p.113. (Web site)
"A very good review of the Sierra game. Well laid out, easy to read and navigate, it even has the reasons behind the censorship for Australian buyers. 5/5."
- Bill Jewell, from Web Ratings - a free Website ratings service. (Web site)
"I've been doing a little browsing around your site, and I'm very impressed with what you've done....This very well-designed site is the place to go for information on both Phantasmagorias. With interviews, Easter Eggs, and plenty of details on the games, don't be surprised if Anthony knows more about the Phantasmagorias than Sierra does. In addition, this site has lots of information on the censorship of computer games in Australia and censorship in general. Anthony's cooperation helped us to write the Gamesmania article 'Games and Laws around the World'."
- Jason MacIsaac, editor of Gamesmania online gaming magazine.
"[You have] the best review page for any game I have ever seen....I have looked at many different reviews and pictures [but] your's by far outdoes every one of them. Before, I had never heard about Phantasmagoria, and now that's the only game I want to buy. After reading your Review, I'm convinced it's a great game and you'll be sure to find me playing it very soon....Every Phantasmagoria fan deserves to see your site. It's like a whole new experience and goes well beyond the game!"
- Justin Cowan, Sierra On-Line fan, game reviewer, and Web designer. (Web site)
"This comprehensive site is more of an overview than just a review."
- GameSpot, a major Internet source for computer gaming news, previews, reviews, and downloads. (Web site)
