Summary

Ok game, haven't played the whole thing, just the 1st half though.

The Good

Good graphics, good plot, keeps you on your toes with the action and the edge of your seat with the plot. The gameplay is very good, and so are the graphics, considering what time period it was writen in, and the OS it is intended for both the compatibility with modern windows systems and the graphics are really exceptional.

The Bad

With out the cheat code the game is very slow due to lots of interplanetary travel, and even with the code you can only play so many times before you wish there was a time lapse feature. Also joystick control is hard at first because of the top-down perspective.

The Bottom Line

Lots of fun for the avid Sci-fi nut or gamer, especially the ones that like retro.
