Enlisted

by G.F. Berry

Space Exploration
2000

About the Story

""Fleeing a broken marriage and a failed business you decide to join the space faring version of the French Foreign Legion." This is a more traditional Infocom style work (emphasis on puzzles, and subtle(?) humor), with plenty of story animations, chances for the player to define his/her lead character, and a few alternate endings." [--blurb from Competition Aught-Zero]

There is a lot of text to read, but it is well written and interesting. There are no objects to manipulate and for the most part you are "led" through the first part of the game.

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

The more games I review, the more importance I place on one particular rule from Graham Nelson's legendary "Players' Bill Of Rights": "Not to have to do boring things for the sake of it." The EVA suit stuff from Enlisted felt quite realistic -- probably, traveling in a space suit via a backpack thruster and positioning system would be just as fiddly and drudging as the game makes it seem. However, reproducing this process does not make for enjoyable interactive fiction... Instead, we have a few minutes of excitement and then long stretches of painful and tricky mucking about. If I wanted that, I'd have joined the real Army.
