Summary

Extremely well done

The Good

The whole concept of 'guide 4 droids to fight their way out of a series of planets in order to eventually find yourself and rescue you', is original and a nice change from the usual 'save the kingdom' stories. Overall, the game is very well implemented. The graphics and sound were top notch for their time. The game was even better though. You could ugprade droids, solve some very devious puzzles and all that stuff.

The Bad

The game is very hard once you start getting deeper. Which, of course, can also be considered as a good thing.

The Bottom Line

One of the best RPGs ever created, by far. It is definitely the best Sci-fi RPG I 've played.
