While it wasn't fair that Douglas Adams had to wait for his own game to run on his preferred operating system (MacOS) until now, the wait seems well worth it. Adventure games have basically taken a back seat to first-person and third-person shooters in the past year or so, but there is still room for a non-violent, family-friendly adventure game like Starship Titanic. Its three CD-ROMs guarantee a longevity not usually found in games of this type, and realistic responses to player's input add a nice personal touch to the game play. Sometimes, it is good to take a break from saving the world by blowing up everything on it. Starship Titanic is a great escape from the many shoot'em-up games available today. An adventure game can only be as good as the writer who develops the characters in and around a well-rounded script. In this case, with Douglas Adams as the writer, Starship Titanic is a winner in my book.
