Summary

An original story comes to life in this coin-op conversion.

The Good

I have to say that being one of the first Genesis cartridges is an advantage on it's own. Aside from that, original gameplay, scheme, responsive control, and nice graphics are a catalyst to this one's classic status.I really like the back- and foregrounds.

The Bad

O.K. The glove's comin' off now. I HATE being trapped. Blind dates with lepers have to be more rewarding that getting continually hurt with not even one second of invincibility. You can get drained of an entire LIFE on one simple enemy. The fact that the levels aren't longer kinda sux too. I've found myself skipping the white wolves just to play longer. They only want you to fight the Boss as a beast. I guess I just wish the game was a little deeper.

The Bottom Line

A great game. If you haven't played it, do so. If you have, good job. Peace.
