SummaryFantastic in vision - lacking in dynamics - but it is 10 yrs old
The GoodThe whole concept of elite and this sequel have simply never been beaten, EV Overide / Nova on the Mac does a cool but ultimately (and literally) 2 dimensional take on the concept.
And the concept is as other reviews suggest - an infinite world of possibilites with no finite goal just a billion plus systems to explore!
The Badwell only the obvious - how can you create a real functioning Universe on a 1meg Amiga!
you can only suspend disbelief for a finite time!
now if only the energy that is put into creating modern XBOX or PS2 graphics games were utilised in such away - HALO or Grand Therft Auto are the only two games I've seen that really push the borders of AI - nevermind the latest graphics, plotline and AI is what makes a real game... or perhaps I mean more than a game!
