Did You Know?


Agent Willmore can give some of his items including his forensic toolkit and his FBI badge to the bum at the abandoned rail yard and these items will disappear forever from the inventory. However, at that point in the game most of these items have no more use anyway, except for the alien stiletto. If Willmore gives him this weapon, the game doesn't end but it does become unwinnable.

During a conversation with Mulder, the player is given the option of saying "Frohike sends his love." Frohike never says his name during his conversation with Willmore. Willmore even goes on to refer to Frohike and the other Gunmen as "three men via video conference." See more »

Mary Astadourian: It looks like an explosive device.

Interesting and difficult game to play
9 May 2002 | by Agent10See all my reviews

This was one of the few major games I could play on my old PowerMac, so I was very thankful for the opportunity to even play it. Tough, intriguing and sometimes frustrating, I enjoyed the time I got to play on it, despite the ire I drew from my parents. The only thing I didn't like was Agent Willmore, who was poorly casted in the role. Beyond that, a good show!
