User Reviews

One of the best computer games around
22 November 1999 | by Spooky2001See all my reviews

This game is a great role playing game. The game is so real that you feel like you are in it. This game has great mystery elements in it and also has the voice of James Earl Jones in it. It has great sound. Only the background is not real but all the people are.
