Burn: Cycle Trip Media / Philips Interactive Media, Inc. 1995

Burn:Cycle is a first-person DOS action/adventure with a cyberpunk theme. Okay, so cyberpunk is cliche, but you've got to admit it's a pretty appropriate genre for a computer game. You play Sol Cutter, a data thief who's just been infected with a deadly virus. You, Sol, have 90 minutes to solve the mystery get the virus out of your system. ...This is one of those action/adventures in which the action is so perfunctory it feels tacked on. Oh, here come the bad guys. Bang bang bang. No problem. Oh, here come some fragmenting meteorites. Bang bang, no problem. I can't imagine a real action fan being satisfied by the action in this game, but since I'm an adventure weenie, it didn't bother me at all. The plot involves a lot of running around in a modern metropolis circa 2043, with attempts to sneak into hotel rooms without getting shot, and finding the various people around town who can help you sort out the mystery of the time bomb that is ticking away in your head.
