Despite these limitations, Battle Frenzy is still a thrill-a-minute game. Sega CD owners finally have a Doom disc and it's dynamite.

There were precious few FPS games released for the Genesis. Which is a shame, as the black box was well known (rightly or wrongly) for its prowess with shooters and most systems of today can boast some sort of flagship FPS. Maybe the Gen wasn't best suited to this type of genre, but I think it's fair to say that Bloodshot disproves that. I would have scored it an eight, maybe higher if there was a level code system, but it's well worth a play (it's quite common and reasonably priced on auction sites), and does give us at least one good, solid experience of this type on our aging consoles.

"Fun" isn't the best adjective to describe Battle Frenzy. It flops between a tasty test of nerves and a manic foot race. If you have the patience to stalk killer robots in outer space, with a dash of frustration thrown in, Battle Frenzy will send you into orbit.

Those put off by the Genesis version may want to check out the Sega CD version. The scaling is a lot smoother and the sound effects seem to have been punched-up somewhat. However, as a derivative on the Doom theme. Battle Frenzy holds it's own, but it just isn't anything special. Typical of the point-the-gun-and-shoot types, there are plenty to collect, lots of enemies to blow away and huge levels to explore. It's not a bad game, just nothing special.

Im gemächlichen Tempo schleicht Euer Held durch die monotonen 3D-Labyrinthe. Ab und an tauchen häßliche Roboter-Mutanten auf, die nach ein paar Treffern ihr künstliche Blut über den Metallboden ergießen. Grafisch manövriert sich Battle Frenzy schnell in eine Sackgasse: Optische Abwechslung ist absolute Mangelware. Die hakelige Steuerung darf als einzige Katastrophe bezeichnet werden. Gerade, wenn es darum geht, in einem knapp bemessenen Zeitlimit seinen Weg zum Ausgang zu finden, erweist sich diese Manko als größter Spielspaßblocker. Nur der 2-Spieler-"Gegeneinander"-Modus rettet das Modul noch vor dem totalen Absturz.

Battle Frenzy (Originaltitel: "Bloodshot") macht insgesamt einen eher unfertigen Eindruck: Durch miesen Sound und ruckelige Einheitsgrafik ohne Endzeit-Stimmung hängt es "Zero Tolerance" hinterher. Auch zu zweit mag der rechte Spielspaß nicht aufkommen. Wer aber bereit ist, mit diesen Einschränkungen auf Alien- oder Gegenspielerhatz zu gehen, dem sei die "Wahnsinns-Schlacht" empfohlen.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the split-screen mode run faster than the normal one, making it an exception to the rule. Another positive aspect is the music, which effectively alternates between high-energy techno and dark, menacing tones. Sega CD fans and classic game collectors will probably find Battle Frenzy to be an interesting relic, but I doubt casual gamers will appreciate it.
