Luckily, I decided to go ahead and give it a try. While it starts out looking like a fairly lame space game, it evolves into a full-fledged masterpiece. The graphics and gameplay are astonishing for someone who started out his video gaming with the likes of Pong and Space Invaders.
That said, the only DOWNSIDE to the game is that there's really no way I could have gotten through it without the help of a guide. Since Zelda: Ocarina of Time, (and probably before) it seems like designers are creating games to be so difficult that you need to fork over some extra cash to learn how to play them. This seems like a cheap trick to make a few extra bucks on what should be a complete game at the time of purchase. I really don't think there's any way you could find and do everything you need to in this game without some outside help, which is frustrating.
At any rate, need for guides aside, this is a great game, and has become an unexpected favorite. One for the permanent collection..
