Summary

Very complex game, a real brain melter

The Good

I still have the original copy of this game that my older brother bought in 1992 and to this day I still think it's an outstanding game. The storyline is somewhat dark and gives you a sense of the shady underhandedness of the KGB. The music is incredible, the plot is amazingly intricate and in-depth, and if you're looking for a challenge, by god you've found it. This is one of those games from your childhood, perhaps, as in my case, something that belonged to an older sibling, that sticks in your mind, even though back then you had no idea how to play it.

The Bad

To be honest, I don't think it would be unduly unfair to say that KGB maybe a bit too difficult. I've never completed it without a walkthrough guide, and my older brother who first bought it gave up on it during the first assignment.

The Bottom Line

Very complex, dark, a rather convoluted storyline. Good brain food for a real genius.
