Summary

Great trading game that inspired multiplayer

The Good

M.U.L.E. was the first game I can remember playing that actually demonstrated how multiplayer game play can actually improve game play. Four guys hunched around the monitor, each trying to outbid the other (but not bid too high), shouting at each other for outbidding them--no other computer game inspired such banter.

The premise of the game was simple to grasp, difficult to master, all the while staying engaging. This is a game I could always keep coming back to. No game was ever the same twice.

The Bad

They graphics for this game were a little weak, even for the era of computers it was released for. But graphics were not the draw for this game, but the excellent gameplay.

The Bottom Line

A great trading game with an engaging premise and gameplay.
