Karl Frank has found an interesting simulation game ranking in the September 2000 issue of PC Games. They rank a wide variety of sims, from flight sims, to space sims to robot sims. Each game in the listing is ordered by its "class" and "review rating," then listed alphabetically with its peers. Prophecy received a score of 90. Just one game, Comanche Gold, received a higher rating with 92, however it was classed one step lower. So this effectively means that Prophecy is the number one ranked sim of all time in this multi-year survey. For comparison to Prophecy's 90, other high rankers included Diablo 2 with a 91 (not in the sim category), X-Wing Alliance with an 88 and the original Freespace with an 86.
