Science Fiction RPG

The Good

The fact that this game has proven to be one of the best RPG's I've ever played. This game felt so realistic due to the character's personalities, I'm a bit like Tom, a fool sometimes but a helpful supporter at others. Albion has rich detail, from the plains of grass to the well built indoors - homes and caves/dungeons. I’ve enjoyed interacting with people and getting interesting and unique remarks/comments back. Blue Byte have had a great idea of space and adventure and somehow combined them into a great game. The music brought the whole game to life.

The Bad

The monsters, sorry to say that, but the monsters scared the hell out of me. Agrim's cave was the worst; monsters kept repeatedly kept coming at me. Although this is not really negative I could not figure out what Tom's dream meant and I kept wondering what it was about.

The Bottom Line

One of the best RPG's of all time; it is a shame a sequel was not made. It would have been a nice follow up to see what the "Albion" group were up to in modern times.
