Gut, gut. Ich gebe es ja zu: Ich bin ein unverbesserlicher Infocom-Fan. Aber wie man bei diesen einmaligen Adventures nicht ins Schwärmen geraten kann, ist mir unverständlich. Einmalige Geschichten, ein guter Parser, immer neue Szenen und logische Rätsel. Stationfall liegt sogar noch über dem üblichen Infocom-Durchschnitt. Meretzkys Adventures sind meistens ein wenig konfus. Hier hat sich aber einiges geändert: Die Story bleibt geradlinig und nicht zu versponnen, ohne daß der typische Meretzky-Humor verschüttet geht. Und Humor hat Meretzky zur Genüge.
Generally, the problem with sequels is that they are either a boring rehash of the original, or they are so completely different that they are sequels in name only. Stationfall strikes a marvelous balance between these two extremes, and provides a quintessential example of what a sequel ought to be.
