This isn't a review - merely my thoughts on the game - having just re-played it......
My first play was when the game was originally released.
I wasn't too enthusiastic
Probably because until then my game diet had consisted of your much more "standard" adventure stuff and this game was so different.
However, my re-play has certainly opened my eyes to just how innovative the game really is - and more especially WAS at the time of its original release.
My opinion now is very favourable indeed and not only
because it installed and played without a single hitch whatsoever
....but also because I could save any time I wanted....the interface was sensibly simple....the few timed sequences were so generous they weren't a problem at all....and the story was absolutely and fascinatingly compelling.
Of course the graphics are not quite what we tend to expect today but then graphics have never been the most important factor for me
There you go !!
