Summary

Simply the best game ever!

The Good

I loved the colorful graphics and the great music (different for each alien). This game has some of the best gameplay for all games still to this date. Melee is a true classic and being able to talk and explore with so many aliens is great fun. Story? What a GREAT story! It doesn't get much better than this!

The Bad

About the ONLY thing I did not like was the tiny little window with which they made you explore a planet's surface. Its not a big drawback, and they fixed it in the enhanced version available only on the 3DO console.

The Bottom Line

Returning home after the war, you discover your side lost. Build your starfleet again from scratch, unite the aliens once again into an alliance and proceed to kick some major Ur-Quan butt! Space battles abound with the very addicting melee!
