Well, I just got hit by the nostalgia train. It's funny to see people liked EV Override more for the same reasons, mostly aliens and the exploration potential.
I remember that when I first played the game, twelve years ago, I immediately did everything to try and side with the Voinians. There was no indication that such a thing was possible, but the game let you do whatever you wanted anyways ! Definitely a fantastic game.
I'm going to launch it up again and get to The Rock as quickly as possible, because I remember the place as being cool. That's how much EVO is loveable. Big, big kudos to the devs, and to mr. Cartwright for the extra lore, too.
