Description of Mission Critical

Mission Critical is an engrossing game that may be the best original hard sci-fi game ever created.

As lone survivor of the ship's crew sent to find alien technology to avert the course of war, you must survive the ship's malfunctions and complete the mission. Puzzles are easier than normal, perhaps due to vastly simplified interface, but the excellent and complex plot more than makes up for it. There is also a surprisingly well-designed strategy game-within-a-game and great performance by Michael Dorn (Worf in Star Trek: TNG).

For those interested, there was a book written that tied in to the plot of the game called Mission Critical: Death of a Phoenix. It's not a bad story!

Every few years I will figure out how to get this installed and play it again. While a couple puzzles are difficult the story is very captivating. Playing this game is like acting in an old favorite movie. Worth the effort to give it a try. The mini-game contained within is creative and fun.

I remember my brother getting this for me one Christmas. Played if for hours upon hours and could never get past one specific part.

It wasn't until years later when I was able to find the solution online that I was able to finish the game.

Can't wait to play it again!
