The addition of the multiplayer element makes Leatherneck a far more enjoyable game than a standard single-player shoot-'em-up.
A fun action game for just one or two players but a real event for three or four. Invite your friends round an you're guaranteed hours of magnificent, mindless mayhem.

Leatherneck is a competently programmed game, but I suspect it will have limited lasting appeal. However, if you can get together with two or three friends you'll be guaranteed a jolly good blast.
This is definitely a contender for "The hardest game of 1988"; it took me ages just to get my score over the ten-thousand mark! The graphics work really well and the tune is good, and though a few quirks in the program make it very hard to progress, it is great fun trying. As first it is more luck than judgement, but, after a while, you can memorize the attack waves and learn how to avoid them.
