It all ends up as a very good looking platform game with heaps of action, acres of game area, a pile of puzzles and mountains of game play. Rick Dangerous
had better watch out.
Hudson Hawk is the latest game to come from the Special FX library of epic titles. This one is a film licence that has received mixed comments from those in the know. Special FX have tried to create an original game that only follows the plot when necessary. The excellent graphics move well and some of the comic animations will raise a little smile from even the most hardened of hearts. The music is a jolly tune but should it become irritating, you can switch it off and just have sound effects on. The playability is another point worth a mention. The three levels have been divided up into sections, so there's really about a dozen levels to keep you busy.

In translating Hudson Hawk into a game, the game's developer, Special FX, has put together a neat, if unspectacular, piece of software which will appeal to arcade fans without ever winning any awards for originality or excellence in design. Having said that it has a far greater chance of carrying them off than its celluloid counterpart.
Hudson Hawk is a solid little few-frills platform game that can be quite enjoyable to play. It isn't an absolute necessity but is nonetheless worth getting. At eight quid, it still represents reasonable value.
