Neoseeker have posted a great review of Independence War 2 from Infogrames & Particles Systems. Here's a bit:
"Cal, the main character of the story, is sort of the 24th century equivalent of Robin Hood. At a very young age, he witnessed the death of his father at the hands of Caleb Maas, the heir to Maas Industries, one of the corporations that set up shop in the Badlands. Luckily, his father bestowed upon Cal a unique gift before he died, in the form of a portable computer that carried a one-of-a-kind simulation of a certain war hero named Jefferson Clay (think Max Headroom with a bad attitude)."
