Summary

What can I say? A game genre in itself!

The Good

I personally liked everything the game had to offer. It had some good CD redbook audio (this is probably one of the first games with redbook audio!) and the backgrounds were superb.

The Bad

I didn't like 2 things: The sound effects were a bit hard to comprehend at times, because of the low res sounds used, and the 3D models became see through at times. But I guess that's what you had to expect back then.

The Bottom Line

I would get it. A true classic. I've seen this game at pawnbrokers for $5.
