PC Neuromancer gives us the first opportunity to see 16-bit graphics placed on top of the excellent gameplay which was already present in the C64 version. Offering non-linear solutions and skill-development, while staying faithful to the novel, Neuromancer is a 'must-buy'.

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Wen der happige Schwierigkeitsgrad und die erforderlichen Kenntnisse der englischen Sprache nicht abschrecken, der sollte diesen Cyberpunk-Klassiker mal antesten - selten war die Zukunft so morbide wie heute!

The "hacking" game is one theme that never really took off with adventure gamers, which seems quite odd, as it is a natural inclusion to the sci-fi worlds many of these adventures looked to create. Certainly computers and technology played a major role in these games, but only a handful focused as completely on hacking as Neuromancer does. In fact, it's the majority of what you do in the game, and anything you'll do outside of computers only serves to further your later exploits in cyberspace.
