This was one of the true greats of my younger days. A fantastic opening scene and unfolding plot, it follows the adventures of Twinsen.
It takes you through a variety of great locales with huge levels of exploration, which at times and especially when younger - can be very daunting.
The action is good, and easy to get the hang of, while offering a range of options to the gamesread more situations and environments.
I particularly enjoyed the background plot and setting, which brought some fantastic and rather dark dystopian ideas to the fore with elements drawn from such ideas as the Big Brother conspiracies and Orwellian style crowd control.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the game and cannot recommend it enough. Especially if the great GOG follow it up with the fantastic sequel too.

There are few games that I remember as fondly as LBA and its sequel. I've played both again at some point in the last 5 years, and they are still as wonderful as they were back in the 90s.
Where LBA succeeds and wins one over is in the charm of the game: the characters, the story, the humour etc. There's an innocence in it too -- something that's been lost in gaming in recent years.read more A fantastic blend of gameplay elements combine to form an absolutely superb adventure game.
This is a world to get utterly lost in. Do not hesitate to do so.

I can't say how many hours I've spent with Twinsen - each and every one was unique and remarkable. His story is so complex and beautiful that is worth playing several times. Guide Twinsen through magnificent adventures and enjoy breathtaking scenery.
One of the best adventure games ever made. Just stunning.
