Summary

My favorite game ever.

The Good

Maelstrom is an old game. Back in the good old days of MS-DOS. But it was so in-depth and creative, that I still rank it as the best game ever. And I have played a LOT of games in my time.

It's a strategy game where you are the leader of a planet called Harmony. But dont worry - there's not much harmony or peace in the game. The galaxy is at war, and you are one of the major sources of a mineral that everyone wants and needs.

Not only that, but you used to be one of the bad guys. You defected, and have somehow ended up running this planet.

This game is hard to "get into" for the first time now, because the graphics are so old and dated. But if you can make an effort there is a really good enjoyable game here.

The Bad

Nothing except some occasional bugs. These days the graphics are very dated - but if you play for a while you'll get over them.

The Bottom Line

FANTASTIC. The best game ever.
