Only hardened gamesplayers will be able to get further than halfway through most missions; single players will run out of patience not long after running out of lives. A two-player game makes things easier and more enjoyable, introducing elements of teamwork strategem. The best dual player shoot-and-run game you can buy.
Dogs of War is essentially an Ikari Warriors, improving on that game with the superb range of weapons and multi- directional scrolling. Although hardly innovative, the simple shoot-'em-up gameplay is very addictive and (as always) more fun with two players. The trouble is, all the missions play much the same, and the action eventually get repetitive.

Zu Beginn erteilt ein ehrenwerter Mitbürger unserem Helden den moralischen Persilschein, sowie den Auftrag, irgendwelche bösen gegnerischen Sprites umzumähen. Da er nichts anderes gelernt hat, tut er das denn auch: sieht ungefähr so aus wie eine Dose Ravioli, die ihr Leben auf dem Gehsteig aushaucht. Das wiederholt sich dann so lange, bis auch den hartgesottesten Veteranen langsam das dumpfe Gefühl beschleicht, knapp siebzig Mark in den Sand gesetzt zu haben.

Looking very much like Leatherneck, Dogs of War is a competent 'shoot everything that moves' type of game. I feel that these type of games are far too similar and too commonplace. Nevertheless, Dogs of War is very addictive, if a little hard, and should keep you amused for some time. If you haven't got Leatherneck or Ikari Warriors, it may be worth your while to buy Dogs of War.
