[Budget re-release] Disk accessing is a bit wild, so it could be well worth laying out a bit of cash on an extra disk drive (about £70). Every computer owner should have a copy of Rocket Ranger - at £9.99 it's a steal.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Even with disk swapping Rocket Ranger is an absorbing, taxing game which should appeal to most people who like challenging adventure movies.
Rocket Ranger makes a great interactive demo, but as a game it lacks depth and immediacy. There is a lot of tedious disk swapping (the game comes on three disks) and a lot of time spent staring at message boxes you already know off by heart while the machine loads up the next batch of screens. The action sequences are few and rather crudely executed, while the strategy element is just that - elemental. Wonderful to look at, but that's about all.
