Summary

Hard Nova Rocks My Socks!

The Good

Other than the plot line, which constantly has turns and twists, I liked the challenge of trying to figure out what to do next. Although the conversations in the game are very linear, they are still fairly entertaining, too. One of the awesome things is that the game doesn't restrict you off the bat - you can do practically anything you want at any time.

The Bad

Unfortunately, the game was created with the thought that the player won't explore what they don't have to - I've found myself playing around in places I shouldn't have and revealed parts of the story that I needed for later on - after uncovering and ignoring those parts and later needing them, I found you cannot recover past conversations.

The Bottom Line

All in all, for being a fairly old game, it's still highly entertaining, and very well done, all limitations considered.
