Summary

Old RPG Classic

The Good

RPG fans will like this one. By today's standards it's maybe nothing special, but this game probably stayed on most RPGer's top 5 list for a good 10 years after its release. (Heck, some sentimental ones may still be keeping it on their list.) Gee, is there an echo in here?

Game play is good. Plot is fine. Graphics is ok. Sound? Well, in a word, "Yes." But somehow, the total package plays a lot better than the individual components by themselves.

The Bad

Not much. I remember getting stuck in a couple of spots. But if you are patient enough, you can see your way through to the end. It's no cake walk though. You'll feel good after beating it, especially if you did it without help.

The Bottom Line

If you've only come onto the RPG scene recently, this one "might" disappoint. But if you love old games or just want to get a feel for where the cutting edge for RPGs was back in the 80s, Wasteland should be one of the first games you try.
