Yuk! The control just doesn't work for this type of game. Maybe a mouse or gun would help out, but at this point it's almost unplayable. The cursor is very hard to move fast and accurately. The game looks like the arcade, but it sure doesn't play like it. The digitization gets a bit choppy at times and the access time could be improved. For the kind of hardware the system boasts, I'm just not impressed with the game.
Mad Dog McCree 3DO will make Mad Dog arcade fans mad. American Laser Games reports it has a 3DO gun in the works for '94. You might not want to face Mad Dog until you get your shots.
Next to Crime Patrol, this is my second favorite ALG game. What makes it for me is the "choose your own adventure" element, which allows you to evolve the game's story as you play along. Targeting is fair, so you can make a reasonable progression through the game. The story is interesting... and the cinema/FMV sequences -- while cheesy -- work will with the overall hoakiness of the game. If you have the game guns for your 3DO, go ahead and pick this one up, it's a great time killer. Besides when you get this game these days, it comes in a bundle with two other ALG titles for the price of one.
‘Don’t buy Mad Dog McCree’ seems the logical conclusion. The CinePak video quality is tolerable but once the trickier bits are reached, you’ll be yanking your hair out in big clumps and shouting at the screen. And then you’ll probably stop playing it.
The Video Game Critic
Mad Dog McCree has a few good ideas like selectable stages and branching paths, but technically it's a trainwreck. Apparently light guns and full motion video wasn't the marriage made in heaven that nobody thought it was.
