Title Millenium 2.2 Game Type Management Sim Players 1 Compatibility Not AGA Submission Angus Manwaring Profiled Reviewer Review Millenium 2.2 is the forerunner to the superb science fiction resource management game Deuteros by the very talented Ian Bird. In this game you are in charge of a hundred souls on a base on the Moon, in the aftermath of a war that has left Earth uninhabited, and colonies like yours, in an extremely sorry state of repair. It is your job to rebuild your resources, take once more to the space lanes, and hopefully, one day, repopulate Earth. To help you achieve this, you have several departments, all accessible at the click of a mouse button, including, Research, Production, Energy, Defence, Resources (mining), and your Docking bay. Now the more gung ho amongst you will have focussed immediately on Defence, and wondered what exactly you get to toast in what is basically a planetary reclamation project. Well, the answer is, yours is not the only colony to have survived. There are folks out there that simply do not hold you in very high esteem, and they`re prepared to back this point of view up with deadly force. You`ll come across them shortly after you launch your first spaceflight. I can`t tell you much more than that about the game`s plot or it would spoil the story for you, suffice to say you are in for a series of problems that will be fun to overcome, whether through logic, patience, exploration or sheer blody-mindedness. The presentation of the game is first rate. It is highly functional, but also aesthetically pleasing, both visually and in terms of sound. The various departments have their own background sounds which really help the atmosphere tremendously. Millenium 2.2 is not a very difficult game, but it`s not easy either. The combat part of the game perhaps lets things down slightly, but as long as you`re not expecting too much in that department this won`t be a problem. In short then, an extremely addictive game, that has been very nicely designed. Not as vast in scope as Deuteros, but an ideal primer for that game.
