With fun discoveries galore, I was always excited to step back onto the surface of this uncharted world

Journey to the Savage Planet is a charming and upbeat adventure about exploring an uncharted planet in service of your corporate overlords.

Journey to the Savage Planet puts you in a brilliantly colorful world, and tasks you with exploring to your heart's content. The moment-to-moment exploration is enjoyable, but the act of combat offers very little in the way of a challenge. The score and insane FMV adverts give Journey to the Savage Planet a lot of personality, but the tiresome parody nature of the writing really lets it down.
