Did You Know?


Before entering the door to the first tram platform, Boston Low jokes that there may be a mad scientist with a pretty girl and a talking robot on the other side. This is a reference to the classic science fiction movie Forbidden Planet (1956), which is also about a couple of astronauts arriving on a planet full of technology from a society that has long since died out (and where they indeed find a deranged professor and his pretty daughter). Forbidden Planet was one of the main inspirations for the game. See more »


Boston Low: [after arming the explosives on the asteroid] This asteroid has a pair of landing lights now, kids. Stick a fork in us, we're done.
Maggie Robbins: Who writes your material, Commander?
Boston Low: I get it all out of the newspapers, Robbins.

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.
