Not exactly hard-core, this one. Beneath A Steel Sky is a fairly shallow point-and-click adventure that takes in elements of Orwellian big-brother paranoia and mixes in humour that is almost funny - but not quite.
The aim is basically to find out how you came to be where you are, and defeat the corrupt city authorities. The pace of the game can hardly be termed exciting, and this isn't helped by being a little bit too easy for most players. Say the right thing or use the right object, and progress can be quick without too much thought. It's okay while it lasts, but there's better stuff if you're willing to shell out a couple more quid.
