SummaryThe reason I bought a C64
The GoodThe best parts about Wasteland is its intense and totally immerging atmosphere. You start out as a young, naive soldier in a land plagued by the effects of a full scale nuclear war. Your initial job is to serve as a sort of policeman, but as you progress into the depths of the game your mission becomes much more than that.
I have never played a game with so much going for it. The advancement system, the settings, the equipment & weapons, the people you meet and fight, and an amazing story. It's all in here and it's flawless.
The BadThe C64-version came on 4 floppys. Not too bad, you might say. Guess again! The game actually requires you to copy each and every one of those 4 floppys to another set of 4 floppys, making it 8 in total! Everytime you wanted to start over you had to do this ridiculously slow routine.. It took about an hour or so to do it on my C64.
