Ratings and Reviews

Fun, With Rough Edges

Radioactive Material

I bought the original version of this that ran on PC several years back. Apparently, this version is somewhat enhanced, although I can't see a lot of differences. The basic game play is fine. My only complaints are in the details - the spoken parts don't always match the words you see on the screen, and apparently, somebody realized late in the game (after their voice actor was already gone) that they needed a few more phrases. Those they recorded with somebody who tried to sound the same, but just couldn't. It's a little distracting, especially if you're keen on details as I am, and I really expect better from a "serious" commercial product, but it's still enjoyable enough.



I have loved playing this game and have played it off and on for the last 10 years growing up. I was very disappointed when I sent an email and got no response or support about the screen issues. I am trying to play on a Mac Book Pro 13” so the screen isn’t that large to begin with… so when you have 2 black bars using almost a thrid of your screen it makes the game almost too small to play and not enjoyable! I downloaded the patch from the website but it says it couldn’t find my install.. so I will continue to wait for a update or an email from their support.



The screen size of the game is just unacceptable. There is also a slight glitch with the speech when it comes to talking to the shop owner of PetrolAir, where upon saying "Bye" it says something completely different. Overall, I really love this game and will be more than happy to write a 5-star review on this if both issues are fixed. 4-star if only the screen size problem is remedied. However, with all these faults, I do recommend this game for both the fun of it and the somewhat educational business experience you'd get out of this.
