5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar, 15 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Douglas Adams' Starship Titanic (Video Game)
This game is absolutely worth the money spent. While some may not quite understand the humour, those who have read Adams' work and know his sense of humour will see it everywhere here. It can be a very exacting game at times, but whereas in MYST I occasionally felt absolutely stumped I found myself always able to work out Starship Titanic.
The bots are truly superb, the PET (Personal Electronic Thing) interface allows for a diverse range of communications. Although in reality bots will only respond helfully to the right questions, they'll respond wonderfully unhelpfully to anything else, and it really is great sometimes. Typing your own answer, rather than choosing from a preset allows one to feel so much more like one is involved in the game.
The scenery is also truly gorgeous. From the opening credits through to the end you are immersed in a fabulous world of opulence (apart from your 3rd and 2nd class quarters, of course), which is often very closely involved in your game. Oh, and in what other game can you ask a bot to throw a television down a Mile-deep central well to which he replies "yeah, smash the ship, smash the ship!" and does it?
I love every second of this game every time I play it.
