You are bound to Oregon, a city of the west where you hope to start a new life. In the most boring way possible, just as this game is just about travelling, of the most boring and accident prone kind possible.

You'll burn in hell for this heretic review! After all, this is officially one of the greatest games of the whole decade!

On a serious note, I do like the fact that you can't just kill a whole herd and live off it for the rest of the journey. An important lesson about overhunting which doesn't detract from the fun of the hunting sequence at all.

I must say that it's better than the remake for Windows 3.2 (I can't find an ISO for it, by the way, just the CD content zipped). There the travel is really slow. I don't know of they wnated to make each section of the travel proportional to what it really takes, but reaching any place can take a painfully long time.

Wow, Windows 3.2? You've got a real rarity on your hands there - I don't think even Microsoft has got that :D

To show I'm always right: here is Windows 3.2. Ok, I found it on a quick search and probably is just bogus or a mistake or any silly thing, but now I've become chinese just to keep on the side of rightenousness.
