    It wasn't so good that I completed it. I did complete The Hobbit, for example.
    But if you can't get enough of Adventure games, and if you like Norse mythology, it's worth a try.

    Both Valhalla and The Hobbit are a pain to play by today standards, but they were visionary at the time. Some aspects are still visionary today, e.g. they dynamically simulate their worlds, each npc has a sort of rudimentary AI and acts independently, sometimes you can find characters fighting each other or talking/exchanging items with each others. Sometimes you can find the corpse of a key npc, killed by someone in the past, meaning that the game went by itself into an unwinnable state. This seems to be more a problem for The Hobbit rather than for Valhalla, but often you can exploit the system to creatively find other solutions.
    The setting of Valhalla is interesting being literally the Norse mythology, places and deities. Valhalla also features rudimentary animated graphics, probably predating the approach of the later Sierra adventure games (king's quest etc.)

    It's Alien Shooter 2 Reloaded. Very fun game but according to some the remaster is worse than the original game in some ways. I haven't played it myself but I know that it has online co-op which is missing in Reloaded. Sadly the original is no longer being sold on Steam. Reloaded has some extra missions and it seems to work fine on Win 10.

    It's hard to level-up the rogue on Kieran in comparison to how easy it is to level-up the fighter on my new 4-armed friend.

    Simplistic walking simulator with some nice naturalistic dialogue at times and some great understated atmosphere music, (although I doubt many Codexers would like the characters personalities).

    I'm sure that the level design would drive me insane nowadays. I remember my national reviewers going ballistic that Jedi Outcast was "completely inferior" and " a travesty". And they were right, methinks, JO has some shitty level design and the rest of the game is simply unimaginative (even compared to JA).

    Still, some levels would drive me mad today.

    Eh, I think the level design of JK is somewhat overrated. It's nowhere near as labyrinthine or whatever as people seem to think, in fact I'd say it's not all that different from Dark Forces - and that thing had neither swimming nor force jump.

    I will however protect Jedi Outcast to the death and beyond. Even with the overall worse level design, it's by far my favourite entry in the whole series.

    For me Dark Forces is still the best SW fps. At least it is clean from all that Jedi soap-opera bullshit that ruined the franchise in the following years (both movies and games).

    Hamlet for PC-98, has a PS1 remake known as Space Griffon VF-9 (and a later version for Dreamcast and PC with improved graphics, but only the PS1 version is in English).

    Funny, but it has a few ideas that I had for DG2, but never thought I'd find their implementation here. Very interesting game, btw, but the control scheme on PS1 sucks balls and DC/PC versions apparently cut away the RPG elements.

    ToEE Co8 New Content version

    Gee, I wonder what's the postgame new content in this mod and why nobody talks about it?

    oh

    oh god

    OH HELL NO

    It sucks. New city of Vebobonc sounds cool but walking around is soul draining experience, it even worse than Hommlet in that regard.

    There was one cool quest - to solve kidnapping case. Turns out the whole action take place in the sewers, and they're as big as the city itself. I'm still impressed, in not a good way, they pulled something like this and not a single time get though that there is something wrong with some concepts and desings.

    Second screenshot is Hickory Branch and there is more enemies than the whole Temple, its surroundings and dungeons contain.
    And you often hit the limit of active critters in combat, that's how many of them are there. 30% giants, 30% bugbears, and the rest is gnolls, orks and other crap.

    P.good game that have two mods and both sucks, amazing.

    You already fight with one (Iuz itself) and he beat the living shit out of your 10th (max available in vanilla game) level party so much that other god had to stop him.
    People who stick with 10th level through the new content must be nuts.
