Very good strategy game. Excellent concept.
Failure rate of missions much higher then really happend in the USA/Soviet space race. Graphics just ok.
The Bottom Line
USA/Soviet Space Race Simulator. You play a director for either side and make decisions on missions/Hardware/Astronaut selection and try to be first to complete a successful moon landing.
