The Space Museum: Episode 4 - Good fun with some interesting ideas
12 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

This adventure has a reputation for going downhill after its excellent first episode. I can see why as the first episode is definitely the best in my view. It has the brilliantly interesting idea of the time travelling crew questioning how their actions can alter a future they have glimpsed. They debate whether to act one way or another or even to do nothing, not knowing what actions may save them from the fate they have seen ahead in their future. This creates much interest in Episode 1 whilst the rest of the episodes are more or less just a fun adventure to see what their final fate will be. The standard is good throughout but never matches the first part of the story. This is largely due to the awful acting of the main villain and his fellow 'Moroks' who are all wooden. The Morok leader is very bad.

All in all though the adventure is very good while never reaching excellence.
