SummaryOutstanding game, truly remarkable for its time
The GoodI still find myself wishing I could play this game from my (misspent) youth. Immersive, tremendous storyline, controls, intelligent, and often truly creepy game. I've never played a better single-player game 17 years later.
The introduction to the game was incredible, the logs of (soon-to-be-dead) crew members was so well done. Atmospheric and central to the game. The sense of space and isolation was a core draw for the game as well. The sound, for the time, and music were also unprecedented and COOL. I recall the graphics being great, but I remember the sounds and music more.
And SHODAN, come on, what a super villain. That voice is STILL creepy and just evil.
The BadI never got all that much into the cyberspace aspects, which seemed somewhat dated even back then. Very minor complaint.
