Conclusion: Ok, finally got round to installing this last night and trying it out for an hour. I'll make it brief and bullet pointed: Good: #very simple items system for available items you already have. #reasonably good menu system for systems, missions, info.
Excerpt: Rebel Assault is a very good game, but also a very hard game to play. The Graphics and Sound effects are both excellent. I have never managed to complete this game as I find it a very difficult game to play, basically you are controlling a spaceship which is not the most responsive, especially in the astroid fields.
