The text comes in six character booklets and 14 game text booklets (containing 50.000 paragraphs!). This game is, in a word, BIG! The story is well-written and atmospheric, there is an excellent interactive system and an economic element incorporating trade. My only grumble is that the combat (which plays a greater role in this sequel) is too automated by the computer. You do have a variety of options - it's just that I would have liked more. The author, understandably, argues that greater player control would mean each player hogging the computer for too long. Find out for yourself...

How does Star Saga Two stack up against its predecessor? Just as "The Empire Strikes Back" was a turning away from the far-reaching wonders and anticipated excitement of exploring the "Star Wars" universe, to the darker and grimmer task of exploring self and combatting the enemy, so too does Star Saga Two turn in towards solving the Clathran Menace. Until that major obstacle is overcome, all else fades away into possible projections of a dark future. The journey you make in Star Saga Two will take you through more twisted landscapes and into more hostile encounters than ever before, but oh what a ride you'll experience! It's definitely an "E-Ticket" in computer games today.
