A wonderfully innovative game with excellent music.

The Good

Suffice to say that Origin was the publisher of many a landmark in computer gaming, and this game is no different. With amazingly drawn graphics, reasonably good control system, excellent plot and innovative gameplay, the best yet feature of this game is the amazing music by one of my favorite trackers, Andrew Sega (a.k.a Necros), a legend in the demo community.

The Bad

Unfortunately, this game does have a few drawbacks. First off, it's quite repetitive. It's OK for someone who loves Diablo, for example, but other people may find it abusive. Also, although the music is simply among the best ever heard in a computer game, it doesn't really change much, and you'll end up hearing the same tune for dozens of times. :-(

The Bottom Line

A very good action game with excellent music and great premise.
