Summary

Definetely a groundbreaking game

The Good

Well, first of all the game is full of incredible animated cutscenes. They help develop the original storyline just like a movie. You play the game in cooperation with a native you encountered, so this is a really unique twist in the genre.

The controls are easy to grasp, and easy to use. You use only the cursor keys and spacebar. Finally the ambient sound effects you hear during the game are very atmospheric. It's even possible to use the PC speaker to play the digital soundtrack!

The Bad

Although there are level codes, some levels are really large and hard. Thus if you die in one of those levels, it may get really disappointing to repeat all the actions required again and again.

The Bottom Line

Just an incredible game in the history of computer gaming, which makes you feel as if you are really in an alien world.
