    One of the few games I've played through more than once. Great sound & music. And it was violet for the time, but i dont think that really holds up relative to newer gorier games.

    I would definitely give it a shot. At least play witha walkthrough

    Well the pleasure of taking a shit is undeniable, I mean, who would want to keep that thing inside of themselves?

    Anyway, if you're not in a real hurry to do the abovementioned, give Dreamweb a chance. It is really good IMHO, and makes a unique in the genre, for some reason (don't ask why, it just feels like that... I just can't come up with any other game that I would compare it to).

    I played it on my Amiga and it was great. I still remember it as one of the most atmospheric games I've ever played.

    Yes, I've felt this way about most games that had the speech and non-speech versions. It's way better and way more atmospheric without voices. Even when they're well-done.

    Only adventure that can match atmosphere of Dreamweb is Bloodnet. But if Amiga version is available, take Amiga version.

    I wouldn't go that far. Is Dreamweb very atmospheric? Absolutely... But, so were other adventure games like Grim Fandango, Last Express, Blade Runner, etc...

    You're right, I should add "IMO" :) Our personal Top10s cannot be the same.
