When landing on Earth's moon one can find the wreckage of a probe called "CCCP Luna 23". The Luna 23 is a Russian probe that was sent to the moon in 1974 to bring rock samples back to Earth. It was damaged during it's landing and stranded on the surface. See more »


The timeline in the Codex lists the 100th anniversary of the first moon landing as July 24, 2069. The actual date of the first moon landing was July 20th, 1969, not the 24th. See more »

The Benchmark for All Other Games
18 February 2008 | by (Qatar) – See all my reviews

This game has to be one of the best games to be released in the recent past hence all the praise that is flowing towards it. Although not a RPG fan I was enthralled by the sheer power and beauty of it right up to the very end. It feels more like a movie that you are involved in, all disguised in a game's body. You will have the experience of your life time with this game. The developers have gone into great lengths to provide us with a brilliant and captivating story that will have you at the edge of your seat till the heart stopping finale. If you are not overwhelmed by the action in the game you will be once you see the breath taking graphics in store for you. The characters feel life like as if they have jumped right out of the screen of a wonderful adventure movie. The action is nail biting stuff and done in a grand scale just like a futuristic drama.

This is out and out game of the year material but it isn't without its shortcomings. There are a few graphical glitches and some game stuttering, the side quests could have had a bit more weight and should have been rewarding towards plot development but after all is said and done if you can over look these minor problems you will have a really good time.

It will take pages and pages to truly capture the pure awesomeness of this epic journey. It is best left unwritten because this is an adventure you will want to experience for yourself, again and again. This is hands down the must buy game of the year.
