ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Initially it's very much an adventure, where progress depends on doing the right thing. However, it quickly opens up into a strategy game with myriad of options as to what to do next. This combination makes for utterly rivetting gameplay which, when combined with the atmospheric graphics and surprise elements, creates a classic game. It will take weeks and months of play to complete, but you will not want to put it down for a minute. Saving the world has never been so much fun.

To be honest basic gameplay is, however once completed (15-20 hours if you don't want a top score) there's little incentive to play again and it is a bit easy. Nevertheless Millenium 2.2 is one of the most mesmerising games available, offering the depth of a classic SF adventure without any of the wordplay hassles. Highly recommended.
The solar system is a big place to explore and there are many planets for you to colonise. You also have the occasional natural and unnatural disasters to deal with. All of this adds to the fun as you scour the solar system looking for a particular element and fight off the nasty little green men. Keeping the human race going is no simple task and you'll get plenty of enjoyment as you try and keep your race alive. The fate of the humanity is in your hands.
If you're not a strategy game fan already, this is the one to convert you. Millennium 2.2 is a brilliant piece of game design and programming that can proudly take its place alongside the likes of Elite and Carrier Command.

Die problemlose Maus/-Iconsteuerung und das interessante Gameplay trösten über das bescheidene Outfit dieses SF-Klassikers hinweg: nachprüfen läßt sich das leider nur noch am PC, weil die Amiga- und ST-Versionen seit Jahr und Tag im Weltall berschollen sind – dasselbe gilt übrigens für den spielerisch sehr ähnliche Nachfolger „Deuteros“).
