There are loads of people to shoot at, and loads of them to shoot at you. But essentially there is nothing about the game to raise it above the run-of-the-mill. Maybe if you could've controlled Joe Pesci...?

Die Hintergrundgrafiken wurden ordentlich ins Detail gesetzt, dafür dann doch bei den Sprites gespart. Das trifft vor allem auf die Animationen der Helden und Gegner zu. Außer einer Intromusik gibt es im Spiel, abgesehen von einigen Soundeffekten, keine akustische Untermalung. Die Programmierung geht in Ordnung, wenn man vom Rasterzeilenflackern am unteren Playfield-Rand absieht. Da hätte eine Timing-Routine gut getan. Die Steuerung ist einfach und korrekt. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist erstaunlich niedrig, was für Newcomer besonders interessant sein dürfte. Im großen und ganzen nicht schlecht, bei etwas mehr Sorgfalt wäre hier sicher mehr drin gewesen.

Power Play
Der Kauf von Lethal Weapon bewirkt eher Unwohlsein als ein Glücksgefühl. Die schlichte Grafik hat große Ähnlichkeit mit der ebenfalls üblem Amiga-Version. Auch spielerisch geht’s fast gleich zu, nur langsamer.

I've looked for links between this and the movie, but believe me, there's next to nothing. The game's box say that it's Lethal Weapon, but I've seen very little evidence of that.

Look, at the end of the day, this is just a platform game, and not a very original one at that. As an example of the genre, it's quite impressive (even though it's let down completely by the abysmal sprite handling), but if you own another platform game, there isn't much to keep you playing this one. A certain amount of care obviously went into the design of this game, but not enough went into the conversion by a long way.
