, as expected from their previous titles, the graphics are beautiful but simple polygon representations of ships, aircraft and bases. The look and feel is what you would expect to look at while watching over a large command hub hidden in a deep bunker someplace 13 stories under a mountain. For those of you who remember a much younger Matthew Broderick in the movie War Games
, then you will appreciate the look and feel that much more. Though they obviously have no direct ties to the old movie franchise, I couldn't help being taken back to my youth when I first saw the movie and thought, "I would like to play that game."
The music is as dark and foreboding as the game's ghostly premise. You constantly here the pings and whirs of computer equipment as you are disconnected from the action happening on your command screen. You also have this nice, dark soundtrack (again, very 80's) playing as the thermonuclear detonation flashes on your screen.
