The addition of the multiplayer element makes Leatherneck a far more enjoyable game than a standard single-player shoot-'em-up.
Atari STST/Amiga Format
A fun action game for just one or two players but a real event for three or four. Invite your friends round an you're guaranteed hours of magnificent, mindless mayhem.
Leatherneck is a pretty good attempt at an Ikari game. Graphically it's a treat, with particularly splendid jungle backdrops and the leatherneck warriors are well defined. My only gripe is that the enemy soldiers are too skinny and small.
Leatherneck plays well although you are likely to progress much further if there is more than one of you playing. It seems strange that no changes are made to the defending forces depending on the number of players.
Atari STST Action
This is definitely a contender for "The hardest game of 1988"; it took me ages just to get my score over the ten-thousand mark! The graphics work really well and the tune is good, and though a few quirks in the program make it very hard to progress, it is great fun trying. As first it is more luck than judgement, but, after a while, you can memorize the attack waves and learn how to avoid them.
Leathernecks is not the best game on the Amiga but far from being the worst. If you want to audition for Rambo IV give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
