Crash!
Superb game. What else can you say about something that captures the imagination so brilliantly and has no flaws at all. This is the kind of game that just doesn’t date. There are too many good features and no sickly gimmicks. When we saw the preview version, I suspected that it would be excellent but it has far surpassed anyone’s expectations. Pete Cooke should go far. He has brought us a game that will be remembered as an all time classic. There’s not much more to say.

Bei TAU CETI handelt es sich um ein sogenanntes „Real Time“-Adventure, ein Kampf- und Strategiespiel „à la carte“! Ein Spiel, das hervorragende Kampfszenen und herrliche Graphic zu einem Super-Szenario verbindet. Wer ELITE oder STARION kennt, weiß, in welche »Schublade“ man TAU CETI stecken muß. Mehr noch: es kann mit letztgenannten Produkten mehr als nur mithalten!

Tau-Ceti is a game of great complexity, but one that is rewarding once you figure out exactly what you're meant to be doing. The graphics are well done, and the action's very impressive on-screen. It does take an hour or so to really sort out any playing tactics... but maybe this is testament to the game's addictiveness.
