i loved this game, it was fantastic. Great retro review!
An interesting review of a great game. I'd like to see more of these on bit.
I too loved this game. I dug it out last year and just couldn't play it due to the graphics. I know graphics don't equal a good game, but this was too old.
I'd love a remake/mod to upgrade the graphics.
Another game it'd be nice to get a HD remake of.
God I loved this game, one of the first PC games I played believe it or not.
Exellent game, I'll be re-installing it tonight!
The only bit that didn't gel with me at all were the occasionally cheap deaths, particularly the building explosion (you'll probably die unless you are right at the very bottom of the screen) and that bloody rat/plank bit underground very near the end.
I could never beat Crystal in the shooting range, only match her score
Ah sweet memories, Seen the add of Atari in the movie. And it all plays in 2010. This should be a 2010 anniversary edition remake in HD quality graphics...
I can dream of a remake if android are dreaming of sheep's
oeps 2019 i mean...
Loved this game when it came out. I remember my amazement on a second play-through VKing a suspect who'd previously been a rep and finding them human. I'd never found a game that changed so much in the second play-through. Even now it seems more that your actions change a game rather than a game change around you. Might have to hunt this one down for a replay. I'm sure it will be in the loft at my parents house.
Played this game with all 6 or 7 discs and loved it. The opportunity for multiple endings was phenomenal back when I played it and before it became standard in Single player games.
Just looking at some of the other classics that Westwood put into our lives http://homeoftheunderdogs.net/company.php?name=Westwood Studios
If anyone's not been to underdogs before, say goodbye to your significant other - welcome to the world of free retro gaming.
Just watched blade runner again on iplayer last night, seeing as it was there. the tears in the rain speech is still one of the best quotes from any movie ever.
Never actually played the game, vaguely remembered hearing about it, and just presumed it would be a rubbish tie in shoot em up, glad to see I was wrong.
Abandonia is another great site, and Abandonia Reloaded even has modded classics. Of course titles that get commercially re-released will get locked on Abandonia and then HOPEFULLY end up for sale on GoG.com... which is extremely well priced IMO considering I haven't had a single game fail on W7 64bit unlike a few titles I've struggled with on DosBox alone.
God, I haven't played this game since it came out, the only reason I haven't installed on my current rig it was because I assumed it wouldn't run on XP. Given that the Underdogs website says that it requires XP does that mean that I can run it??
I'm gonna try it tonight, if I can find the box...
I installed this on my Mrs netbook a few months ago - think I will install it on my PC too. It looks so old, but the gameplay will hopefully compensate.
"Harrison Ford isn't the Blade Runner; I am." You have just summed up how I feel about gaming in general. I don't watch TV any more and Movies just don't have the same effect these days. I feel spoiled by the computer games I enjoy to play so much. I will have to try and find my jewel case tonight and have another play through. I really did enjoy this game and believe it or not I only seen one ending :O
Beneath a Steel Sky.. do it, do the retro review! This and Blade Runner are definitely fond memories.
Wonderful game, been a while since I played it. I may dig it out again sometime.
