Yes, I still have the CDs. The 2nd one is better than the 1st, even though the 1st is closer to Niven's story. On a side note, Halo is a rip of Niven's idea. The suggestion of this angers some Halo fans, even tough the Halo developers flat out admit they took the idea from Niven. They are usually people who have no idea who Niven is.

I never owned Return to Ringworld, but the demo of it is on the copy of Ringworld that I have and, just from playing that demo, I can tell it was a "better" game.

That's not to say I don't love the first one though.

As for the novels, I've only read the 1st one (which I do like), and I never got around to reading the other 3. Has anyone read them? Recommend them?

I've read and enjoyed Return to Ringworld. If you like Niven you would like it.
