I'm amazed that Ocean have managed to pack so much into Midnight Resistance. Granted, the arcade original was attractive but the 'blast all that moves' format is wearing pretty thin (apparently this is another Ikari Warriors sequel). That said, Special FX have done wonders with the gameplay, which, in a small way, makes up for its repetitive nature.

The action is fast and furious, the graphics are superb and the sound is out of this world. My only gripe is the flick-screen scroll - I would have preferred continuous scrolling. Despite this, Midnight Resistance plays like a dream and is sure to be a hit.

The one-player only gameplay is a bit disappointing, but aside from that Midnight resistance is a decent shoot 'em up that's just a tad on the slow side.

Es handelt sich hierbei um eine ausgezeichnete Data-East- Coin-up-Umsetzung, die knallharte Action aus der Spielhalle in unsere Wohnzimmer bringt.
Power Play
Überdurchschnittlich gut gelungen: Midnight Resistance haucht der alten Spielmasche mit dem wild um sich ballernden Einzelkämpfer neues Leben ein. Die Extrawaffen sind abwechslungsreich und die Levels voller Überraschungen, wenn auch teilweise etwas kurz geraten. Vor allem die Amiga-Version mit dem Zwei-Spieler-Modus wirkt wie aus dem Ei gepellt, lediglich die kontrastarme Farbwahl stört. Auf dem Atari wird der Spielspaß dadurch geschmälert, daß erst gescrollt wird, wenn sich Eure Spielfigur dem Bildrand nähert. Unterm Strich ein grundsolider, vor allem auf dem Amiga gut spielbarer Actionreißer.

Chances are if you like shoot-'em-ups, you'll find Midnight Resistance reassuringly familiar. It's guaranteed to be a good long-lasting slog in order to get to the finish. Whether you make it depends on how patient you are and how much repeti- repeti- repetitive gameplay you can stand. If you're thinking of avoiding pre-exam homework to play Midnight Resistance, it's not a good idea. Geography revision is probably far more stimulating.
