thanks for the review! i also bought this game 3 times... funny, these classics just deserve to be bought multiple times, right?!
(the macintosh version on 11? floppy disks for my lc475, the dos version on cd-rom with that great voice acting the mac version was missing and finally a few years back the gog version of the dos original... again! ;) )

cheers!

I've never played this first game; and the third game is based on a hoax so insulting that I refuse on principle to play it. But I liked the second game enough The Beast Within to have beat it at least twice, maybe three times. Don't know where it even is now...  :'(

(I mean other than on GoG. ;) )

You should play the first one.  Most think it is the best of the series.
