It would be unfair to compare this to the PC version (a groundbreaking title) so we’ll just enjoy the fact it’s even on 16-
Whilst first person shooters are thought to be solely for the PC (and suped-
So how does it play? This is one of the most fun titles I’ve played on the SNES. The L and R buttons work pretty well as strafe buttons and the way you can cut swathes through your enemies is impressive. The sound effects are amazing, gunshots spot on and “Stop!” can be heard round every corner. Beware, the lower the tone, the tougher the soldier coming to get you. The levels are huge and carry a lot of enemies (our favourite zombie soldiers are all intact, sort of).
There are a few problems, the music per stage is short and will drive you mad as the levels are so big. Everything looks the same which can be very confusing, causing you to look at the (albeit impressive) map, a lot. Bosses are huge and remorseless, shots from anyone take huge chunks off your life gauge. Your eyes will start to hurt as there’s nothing for them to focus on. You can’t cycle through weapons (or it wasn’t obvious how), so you had to persist with the strongest one (love mini gun, hate rocket launcher) until ammo runs out.
Certainly flawed but it’s a big blurry mess that’s hella fun.
