A classic no doubt, and for a lot of people a brilliant introduction to adventure games. They could have done much worse as this is solid, classic point and click with great graphics (notice I am not specifying: “for its time”) and the self-aware humor SoMI players loved at first sight in 1988.
It’s clever, it’s funny, and for a game you could fit on a few 1.4MB disks the MI universe you get to explore is more memorable than most of today’s 60-hour RPG epics.
Some decried the ending but this type of self aware, meta shenanigans had been a staple of the series from the start. Get a sense of humor, and if you already do, this is one adventure you won’t want to miss.
