For the price you get a disc or cassette, a flight manual (borrowed in places from the HHGTTG), a small novelette of dubious use and a literary standing, and a couple of reference cards summarizing the 51 command keys you can use. The whole thing is beautifully packaged in a high gloss, low-tech cardboard box.

Trying to review this program in the space available here is like trying to get a gallon in a pint pot! This program has been hailed as a megagame and certainly tries to live up to that title. Addictive? This game could wreck relationships of every kind; beware!

[Expanded version] Elite is an excellent game. One of the few that can really be called a 'classic' and probably the only 'classic' that is still playable - especially two years after release. The slightly lower price makes this very good value for money and it is worth getting just for the extra versions of the game.

Elite is vast, complex and very, very absorbing. I've got bulging, red eyeballs from staying up into the early hours but I don't care. I'm going to continue playing until I'm ranked Elite ... or at least Competent ... or even Average ... Buy it!
