Summary

LucasArts...You couldn't ask for more!

The Good

Like any other LucasArts game, The Dig has a great story line, great puzzles, great animations, and great humour. It never once died on me, but i admit i had to refer to the walkthrough once or twice to crack some of those puzzles, which made me realise how much of an idiot i was, because they were so straight-forward when you gave it some thought.

The Bad

This game was perfect, the puzzles may have been a little bit out there for me, and sci-fi isn't exactly by favourite genre, but i have to admit nothing was really bad about it.

The Bottom Line

You are undertaking a mission to blow up a huge asteroid/comet thing, that's about hit earth. What you don't realise is that the asteroid is actually an alien ship, that's taking you to it's home planet. On the planet you have to find out the usuals, why you're there, who took you there, what lives there, and the list goes on. There's a great surprise ending, and i was very fulfilled when i completed this game.
