What do you do super computer goes haywire and promises World War 3? No, it's not a song title, it's the plot of STI, the latest from Bug Byte. What you do is you take your gear and go and fix the computer, and the only reason you do it is because you get promised a lot of money. Some people.

The game is quite large, with a large vocabulary, and the locations are varied and interestingly written, though the 'humour' (I use the advisedly) is thin and generally a kind of one-on-one between the programmer and the punter, it's written chatty, but not actually funny. The game has no flow to it. and as far as I can see, the only way anyone is to complete it is more or less by complete luck. Plainly, I don't like it very much and I can't see anything that would keep any adventure player hooked.

Text only adventure with disjointed flow and a lot of snippets of pathetic humour.
