Border Zone, like all Infocom's games, is faultlessly executed as far as the parsing and programming is concerned, but it didn't grip me as much as their other releases. I would have preferred a single scenario with more locations and more puzzles. As it is, the fragmentation of the plot (although original) seems to detract from the atmosphere, a failing not adequately compensated for by the added excitement of 'real time'.
