Wow, and Wow again! Tex Murphy, Overseer, a Full motion, video, Mystery game may be one of the best kept secrets in the Software World! This is a GREAT game! You play the role of Tex Murphy P.I. a struggling detective, that is trying to make ends meet. All of a sudden, a gorgeous girl comes into your office, and asks you to take up a case about her father's death. As you go on in this HUGE game, you visit more than 31 virtual worlds, and talk to up to 40 witnesses. It's expensive, no one can take that away, but if you judge from the past and present quality of Access Software, you know that this is sure to be a hit! I recommend a Pentium II 166 with 32 megs of RAM, they recommend a Pentium 133 with 16 megs of RAM, and it worked just fine on my Pentium 75 with 16 megs. If you got a Pentium, it should work just fine. (This game can also run on a DVD drive, and supports a 16 bit 3D sound card,)
