Visually looks great, but...
8 October 2012 | by (Deadwood) – See all my reviews

This game, released in 2001 has great visuals, excellent graphics, pretty good job, excellent sound effects and that kind of stuff. It really does, the concept for levels (aka worlds) is also good, it's very lively and cheerful. But... overall, it's ridiculous. This game has no story at all, not even close. No story, no soul, no structure, no good voice acting, nothing. It has silly weapons, funny-looking enemies (though some of them were not that bad), and no meaning. The gameplay is dumb, you are firing from your weapons like there's no tomorrow, at the endless hordes of enemies... it's fun at first, but after a minute or two, it gets tiring and boring. What's the point here? What's the point in the game to shoot endlessly in dumb looking enemies and other entities? Well, you can't go to the next room, or stage until you kill all of them, and for that, it might take some time... I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone, because it has no sense at all... But if you want to waste your time, just to speed up things... there you go... play it.
