Summary

Definitely one of the best; but can you find a copy?

The Good

I've played many, many adventure games over the years. This may not have the best graphics, the best music or the best interface, but it has the best story. (Admittedly, though, I played the game using the hint-book that was packaged with it, so I didn't get too waylaid or frustrated by the puzzles).

You play a 'prospector', or space adventurer, who travels to far off planets from your base on 'Gateway': a space station created by an alien civilisation, and later discovered accidentally by humans.

Its gripping stuff. No really it is. Compelling in fact.

The Bad

It was virtually impossible to buy. Unlike its successor (Gateway 2) it's rare. It comes up on e-bay every 4 months or so (if you're lucky) and goes for a lot of money but I'd recommend it as its worth every penny (cent, euro etc).

The Bottom Line

A rare treat from story-tellers supreme: Legend Entertainment. The game is a challenge, but finding a copy is even more of a challenge!
