Well, I can say that Asteroids 98, a remake by Activision for Win 98,
wasn't boring. Besides better graphics and sounds it had a more
complete plot than the original Asteroids of the 1980's. Basically,
the in-game story was you were sent out to stop these asteroids from
hitting earth. As you played you found out the asteroids were a weapon
used by an alien race, the crystal aliens, who were trying to start a
war with Earth and whipe us out. Of course, besides asteroids there
were space snakes, UFOs, and even space probes. There were a number of
different types of asteroids like ancient energy asteroids,
indestructable asteroids, etc which made things certainly interesting.
Asteroids 98 was awesome.
