Summary

Easily one of the best space adventures ever made.

The Good

This is the definitive classic Space Adventure. The gameplay is still solid and its filled with adventure, fun, action and a great story filled with some of the most bizarre characters. Even the 'text' adventures were great. The music is appropriate and does not get old quickly like many other games.

The Bad

There are a few puzzles that are not quite logical. There is a time limit to the adventure. The resource gathering can be tedious.

The Bottom Line

One of the best classic space adventures made. Its still definitely worth playing.
