I started this review by looking at the back of the box, saw what was there and just let out a sigh. After installing the game and playing it though I can safely say that Interplay has done a great job of remaking this classic game. Explosive graphics, cool musical track, good sound fx, and LOTS of challenge all combine to make Tempest 2000 another classic more than 16 years later.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this game most highly both to those who loved the original and to those who want the ultimate challenge in exciting arcade action in an abstract setting. Given that it builds upon an established classic, the game does not possess unsurpassed originality; and given that it relies on simple geometric shapes, the game lacks the realism of some of the more detailed simulations out on the market. But in my considerable gaming experience I have yet to encounter any arcade action software that is more fun to play or harder to quit.
Om du inte besitter en vansinnigt stor portion nostalgi gentemot originalversionen av Tempest ska du inte begå misstaget att köpa pc-versionen. Fast det är väl klart, den nya technomusiken glädjer väl alltid någon.
