Summary

A beautifully constructed frustrating waste of time

The Good

This is a wonderfully designed adventure game that could be the perfect game for nearly anyone to play. In fact, it could be one of the all-time greats. But it isn't!

The Bad

It's nearly impossible to complete. You need to buy the guidebook- and spend several hours on the NET to gather other info just to play. Even then, you still have to be an EXPERT game-player to complete some side-bar "Floyd" missions that are critical to the conclusion. Average kids -even above-average teen players can't win. There are no workarounds. Fail to get a "gold" rating on any part --and you just might as well throw the game out.

The Bottom Line

A game made for kids that kids can't win. A disappointing waste of time and money.
