Osoby lubiące gry typu "Pirates", "Secret of the Monkey Island" szybko polubią Hard Novą. Również miłośnicy joysticka nie powinni być znudzeni produktem Electronic Arts - momentami trzeba szybko machać myszką i podejmować błyskawiczne decyzje, a boje w przestrzeni kosmicznej niczym nie ustępują filmom Lucasa.

Nova läßt sich von drei installierten Disks, bequemer aber von der Festplatte, spielen. Leider wirft Euch die Kopierabfrage schon nach einer Fehleingabe aus dem Programm. Wer leichte technische Abstriche in Kauf nimmt, wird an diesem SF-Rollenspiel dennoch viel Freude haben.

I don't know. Maybe if you're a really big fan of RPGs then you might be able to glean something from this, but for anyone else there are plenty of better RPGs on the market. One for the "sad" people, I think.

Die Steuerung ist hingegen trotz der (teilweisen) Mausunterstützung alles andere als der letzte Schrei: bei „Sentinel Worlds“ ging's da noch wesentlich komfortabler zu. Eigentlich ziemlich schade, denn in punkto Atmosphäre und Grafik macht der harten Nova so schnell kein anderes SF-Game was vor!

To get the most from all this you need to persevere, but Hard Nova's not the sort of game that appeals to everyone. If you're after a long term challenge and fancy yourself as a leather-clad person who silences bars by walking in bristling with weaponry, you might get off on it. But otherwise Hard Nova is hard work.
