Pros: When you pull cattle up to your ship with your UFO's tractor beam, an exasperated farmer cries to the heavens, "What do they want with my cows?" You don't want to know, mister.
Cons: The game doesn't take the time to explain the rules. You're immediately thrown into a fight and expected to muddle your way through. This is not how you encourage people to spend another 15 bucks.
