Chain Reaction

Another rubbishy old Durell game disinterred from Elite's vaults and bunged out on its cheapy label, and, like some of the others we've sampled these past few months, Chain Reaction doesn't really make the grade.

The plot's all about an atomic pile that needs neutralising, and you have to run about killing nasties and solving problems and all that sort of thing. Sadly, though, the graphics are so basic - especially as the game is over two years old! - and the gameplay so drab, that it's hard to maintain any sort of interest. Instead you find yourself, well, throwing it out of the window with frustration and boredom. It's really getting quite messy out there, isn't it?
