Asteroids 98

Overall: 4
Graphics: 4
Interface: 4
Most often, in my humble opinion, when software companies try to remake an old classic into today's latest and greatest graphics, they fail. I like the idea of being able to play a game I grew up with but almost everytime, I'd much rather be back plugging quarters into the old beat stand up arcade version. This is not the case with Asteroids 98.

Graphics/Display:

Very nice graphics considering it's just Asteroids. Everything is very smooth and objects are incredible in 3D. A very nice touch from the old white lined asteroids.

Interface/Controls:

I had a hard time figuring out the controls at first. I actually didn't have time to check and see if they were customizable but after a few levels I got used to the default keys. Everything pretty much moved around like the old Asteroids. I mean again, it's still Asteroids !! heh.

Multiplayer (if any):

Summary:

I rather enjoyed this game. As always I need something to really hook me in to play it more than a couple of times. While the game is a vast improvement from the original Asteroids and eye candy is at a premium in this game, it's still just Asteroids. :)
