Be wary that on an emulator the copy protection is active in this version: so the 'hand' will start shaking and the game become essentially unplayable. Try a cracked version from one of the menu discs.

Conversing with aliens was the highlight of course. Frustrating mostly, but also very funny. Even the most thug-like alien would crack up when the subject of sex was brought up. While this game created a very strong mood with its eerie graphics, its lasting contribution may well have been the realistic sounding speech sentences spoken by different aliens. I can still hear the Izwals laughing at me.
