Trivia

Steven Spielberg envisioned the game originally as a hybrid between Forbidden Planet (1956) (a planet full of alien technology from a long-since disappeared civilization) and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) (people unable to trust one another because of growing greed and paranoia).

User Reviews

Not too bad. Lacked humor but had reason for that.
7 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I felt this game was not bad. The game had a great plot and made you feel like what you were doing was going to SERIOUSLY mess you up if you messed up. It lacked humor but I felt that was to highlight the seriousness of your current situation. My only complaint was that some of the voice acting was rather bland. Mainly Robert Patrick and Mari Weiss. It was like they were just reading their scripts and felt this was below their talents.
