    Is it good? I'm always on the lookout for good cyberpunk games.

    Apart from the action segments it's a great game.

    It's very atmospheric and I got some sweet 1980s vibes from it. A lot of 'Bladerunner' with a little bit of 'Big Trouble in Little China' sprinkled in. If you like 80s cyberpunk, point and click adventure games, and early John Carpenter films, then you'll like this.

    I made an LP of this ages ago, if you want to get an idea of what it's like. I don't recommend going too far into the LP if you actually plan on playing it. I think it's a great game, but then I'm a sucker for optional content and multiple paths in adventure games, and both Rise of the Dragon and Heart of China had a lot of this.

    I actually prefer the Sega CD version with the Cam Clarke voiceacting, and even the green tint graphics over the higher fidelity DOS version.

    Worth playing whichever the version though.

    Yeah, buy the GOG version but then play the Sega CD version if you can. The mild censorship is annoying but everything else is better.

    You know what I saw on steam that isn't on gog...

    Heretic, Hexen, and Hexen 2. Geeze GOG... fuck me hard. No one has Heretic 2 due to some bullshit. I think maybe I uh .. acquired a dl somewhere since I doubt it'd install on my win10 from disc. As for Heretic and hexen.. I should probably just use project brutality or something. Can't recall if I have hexen 2. Loved Raven games even if they're shooters. Am I a true boomer? Well, damn I played doom so long and ignored so many rpgs until I clickfested on diablo and d2. None of those are true rpgs.

    Another problem with Heretic 2, beyond its general unavailability in online stores, is that unlike Heretic 1, Hexen and Hexen 2, Heretic 2's source code was never released.

    At least for Heretic 1, Hexen and Hexen 2 i have the data files copied from Steam and bundled with a source port.

    Not a bad game. Some of those cars are pretty sweet.

    I disagree, the Saboteur tried to be both an Assassin's Creed climbing stealth takedown game and a GTA game and just comes off as a blander than either having been pulled in two directions. Side content is relegated to blowing up 8000 AA guns, fuel tanks, et cetera and there is little to no motivation to do so because you quickly acquire all the money you would need from the first few hundred and all the rest just make an easier game even easier by cutting down on opposition on the map. Could use some races and apparently they couldn't get assets to stream fast enough for planes on consoles in their engine so they axed planes entirely. In at least one mission it really felt like they were building an escape from the airfield then you just nope out the front entrance after mowing down some nazis.

    I count it up there with Just Cause 2 as one of the most pointless open world games I have played and I have a high tolerance for open world games. Don't let me dissuade you from trying the game as the setting had potential, just let me say if you aren't enjoying it the Saboteur is not going to get better the further you go on. Would be better off playing Mafia.

    Christ. Fresh releases - Commandos 2 HD Remaster, Praetorians HD Remaster, Of Orcs and Men, Styx: Master of Shadows, and Styx: Shards of Darkness. Top it off with a huge 'Lunar Sale'. Cut to a broken man surrounded by upturned hourglasses, muttering to himself 'not enough time, not enough time...'
