The graphics are very good -- colorful, offering a nice background to the action without being glaring. And the action is never monotonous, because you will have enough to do just staying alive. One shot won't take you out (it takes about three to do that), but your enemies can blast you out of the scene and back one scene. So, keep an eye on your life bar. When it gets low, be extra careful.

Overall, Blackthorne offers nice arcade action, although the Kyle figure you control reacts too slowly to your commands at times (i.e. it takes too long to pull out your gun, and while you are doing so, the closest enemy blows you away). The gameplay offers some nice features, like the ability to avoid gunfire by stepping into the shadows. But despite that, it's hard to forget that the game originated from the SuperNES game system, because the port shows throughout.
