Aahh, a subject close to my heart. If you like Masterbook; you`ll want to look for the first incarnation - TORG! </P>

Fond memories. Great game. Shatterzone is the second incarnation of the system. For the vast majority of us who have played them, our opinion is this- the original system in TORG is far better. Check out</P>
