Summary

A good game that has "Aged" very well.

The Good

This was the original, the sequels to this game pale in comparison. Its hard to believe that all the information that is in this game fits on 4 floppies. Controls are easy, sound is good, and it keeps bringing you back for more.

The Bad

It isnt a game that you can really just jump into, you have to learn what does what and how you counter act those actions. It really doesn't have any other true bad features, this game is still a hit, 6 years after its release.

The Bottom Line

A Great Simulation/Action/Kill the evil Aliens type game, Go For IT!!!!!
