Interesting and difficult game to play
9 May 2002 | by Agent10See all my reviews

This was one of the few major games I could play on my old PowerMac, so I was very thankful for the opportunity to even play it. Tough, intriguing and sometimes frustrating, I enjoyed the time I got to play on it, despite the ire I drew from my parents. The only thing I didn't like was Agent Willmore, who was poorly casted in the role. Beyond that, a good show!
