Summary

Dumb but gory. Extremely gory.

The Good

Well, at the time being the graphics and animation were cool. Very arcade-like, including with body parts flying across the screen and blood splattering when you killed another bad guy.

The Bad

Quite boring after a while. And man, was it SSSLLLLLLOOOOOOWWW when I got it in it's heyday, although that might not apply any more today.

And the story is pure by-the-numbers. The chick you have to rescue is sexy, your boss' daughter, and single. Shhhyeahright.

The Bottom Line

Don't bother.
