Summary

This game rocks!

The Good

Tremendous depth and space-opera quality. Wonderful story line, and wide-open choices for setting up your ship and crew. Absolutely non-linear. You could star-travel wherever you wanted to in their universe. How cool is that??? I cannot name another game before or since that lets you explore exciting (or boring!) star systems and planets... But pretty soon you started getting clues that you had to perform some tasks. Wonderful story there...

The Bad

It was *very* easy to get killed if you weren't careful. The save game feature absolutely sucked. Replay value was poor.

The Bottom Line

Rich interstellar story-telling and adventure. Great gameplay!
