With Evil Genius and Farcry completed, I've returned to my retro list
once again. This time it's StarCon 2, the classic sequel that's part
RPG and part space combat action. This is all possible on a modern
Windows XP system through the use of DOSBox
, a DOS emulator that,
so far, has run StarCon 2 perfectly. This really is a classic great
game, with imagination and humor combined with a sense of wonder,
exploration, and achievement. Though it pre-dates the widespread use of
digitized voice work, it does have some good sound effects and great use
of different styles of music (each race has their own kind).
You can download StarCon2 from Abandonia.
