Summary

Not the best, but 3.7!

The Good

I liked many different things about this game. One thing in particular I liked was the different obstacles you had to manage your way out of. Although these puzzles were much easier in the VGA version. I like the sots o death challenge even though you do have the magnet. Also i like the different jokes that the game has to offer. For example the depressed droid on Keroina, the weapon supplying droid aboard the deltaur, the Giant washer shaped like a microwave, the droids salesman on Keroina and the way the game mocks Toys-R-Us(Droids-B-Us).

The Bad

There were only a few flaws that ruined the gameplay. One thing that really annoys me is how easy the game is to beat. I can if i tried beat in at the most 3 hours, because some obstacles are hard even though the game is quite short. Also i dislike speed of the game for in the original you could actually get out of the Arcayda with out getting shot. Also i dislike the ending ceremony the ega one was much larger and grander.

The Bottom Line

I would describe the game as a classic, becuse the game has roots through out my school years and life in general. Also the Space Quest series was a very popular series in the late 80's and early 90's.
