Slaine is a very unusual game, a sort of freeform hybrid somewhere in the marshy ground between arcade game and graphic adventure. The system used to create this effect is called Reflex, an original concept involving the real time selection of text with a free floating cursor. The cursor in this case is a gory, severed hand, which points to your selection in the 'thoughts' window, snatching at the thoughts before they float out of Slaine's warped mind. It makes it a bit tricky to get used to, but then again once you've done it a few times it comes a little easier. Like most things in life, you might say, and I'd agree but I'll slap your wrists first.
To the nonplaying observer, Sláine looks dull; but the thoroughly mindless fighting is enjoyable to play! The graphics are good, albeit unimportant, and though the scrolling of instructions is annoying at first, at least it keeps you on your toes.
L'aventure est difficile et intéressante mais le système de contrôle choisi n'est guère probant.

Sláine is professionally presented and it is a shame that the mode of play lets it down.
