Review of 'Elite'

Rating:2 User: Vampyre

As someone has already mentioned, Elite is a marmite game and I was one of the haters.

For me, Elite is like musicals - I can understand why people love them, yet I find them tedious and dull. Back in the day the Lenslock debacle certainly didn't help matters but even once into the game I simply never enjoyed it (docking being so difficult made matters worse).

All in all as a piece of software technology it is peerless. The incredible routines that Braben and Bell came up with to create a living, breathing universe are exemplary.

All I can say is that the game hugely impressed me but bored the pants off me at the same time!
