Dreamweb: a dark, brooding game set in a dystopian near-future. It is not a game for pacifists or vegetarians. Nor is it a game for those who value deep and intricate plots, characters with depth, or life-enhancing conversations. Creative Reality paid considerable attention to the game's atmosphere, but overlooked the value of a strong narrative. The game's ill-explained alloy of sci-fi and mysticism is but an excuse for the violent content, and would be more at home in an average platformer. The dialogue is functional rather than enjoyable. Puzzles have logical solutions, but the fact that you can pick up almost everything makes the solutions obscure at times. A prime example of style over content, but definitely worth a look for its gripping plot and very atmospheric gameplay. (Oh, and watch out for one of the earliest uncensored sex scenes in a mainstream PC game.)

Check out the download of this since-turned-freeware game on the ScummVM site (you'll need the interpreter to play). Also take a look at the remastered soundtrack by Alberto Rizzo Schettino (composed by Matt Seldon and Steve Boynton) linked below.
