Trivia

The second version of the game was made quite violent and gory, as requested by Steven Spielberg. For example, one of the characters would turn into a bloody corpse after entering a cave filled with acid. However, after receiving much criticism for some particularly violent and bloody scenes in his movie Jurassic Park (1993), Spielberg asked the design team to tone down the mood of the game, so that it would still be appropriate for children.

Boston Low: [pause] We'll have plenty of time to starve to death.

athmospheric, moody, simply great.
24 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is the second best computer adventure I've ever played.

With attractive storyline, moody handdrawn graphics and a supportive soundtrack, it keeps you playing till the end. But it is not an easy game to solve. There's one flaw though: the voice-acting. Robert Patrick sounds rather bored when acting Boston Low.
