Power Play
Der Held stapft schlampig animiert durch ein scrollendes Ritterszenario, fuchtelt mit dem Schwer durch die Gegend und stirbt irgendwann durch einen Überraschungsangriff. Außer der Grafik ist bei „Onslaught“ alles hochgradig unterdurchschnittlich und keine Zierde für das Mega Drive.
The inevitable conclusion is that Onslaught is an inexcusably poor game. One might look for something to admire in its graphics or soundtrack, but any positives are neutralized by huge flaws in the game’s presentation. Even that is irrelevant, though, because the overriding issue is that Onslaught is repetitive and shallow beyond all hope of redemption. There literally isn’t anything to do but fight the same battles hundreds of times in a row. It’s a data-entry job masquerading as a video game, a mindless Pavlovian exercise pretending to be a fun diversion. It is utterly without merit or satisfaction, and should never have been released for the Genesis.
