One of the Greatest games for Genesis

The Good

What don't I like about this game?! This is completely AWESOME! I enjoyed the music greatfully! The mixture of Heavy Metal, Punk, Grunge, and Battle music sets the attitude for this game in such an award winning way! The characters very much resemble the famous and infamous people of the Gulf War! The plot and story were very brilliant mixing in real life world events!

The Bad

"Saddam hussien's"(or The Madmans) beard. Saddam only had a mustache during this time.

The Bottom Line

The greatest shooter of all time. It's so compelling. The gameplay will have you feeling a challenge coming on! The thing they say in the credits about making it a big movie and actually joking about it, I'd say they should make the movie anyways! Universal Pictures please!
