ABsolutely awesome game, even in 2004

The Good

It is INFINITELY play-able. But, this game is NOT about graphics, tho, for it's DAY, it was an awesome game. You can only TRY to 'master' certain levels of play (within certain time periods) and THEN, you can go about your business in an entirely DIFFERENT time period... Try it... You'll LIKE IT... You'll find yourself running your career well into the wee hours of the morning... Only to try it all again the NEXT DAY!!! Back in 87-89 I was stationed in Germany, and one of my roommates bought a small computer and it came with some games... GUESS which game is the one I STILL enjoy playing??? ...Uh HUH!!! You GUESSED it...

The Bad

What's not to like? (if ya want big 'realistic' explosions) go buy a cd of some New Thing....

The Bottom Line

It is without doubt, a classic. This game is NOT about the visual effects... it is about THE GAME...
