Description

Mad Dog McCree and his gang have kidnapped the Mayor and his daughter, and its up to you to rescue them. You must blast through bars and bank robberies to take the gang out and save everything you regard as good and true. Where the game differs from other Operation Wolf-influenced shoot-'em-ups is in the use of live video, with real people appearing on the screen before you shoot them down. You have unlimited continues with which to reach the end, so the actors will have their screen deaths seen by as many people as they would had they starred in a film.

The PlayStation 3 version has re-mastered full-motion footage (720p), a new scoring system with leaderboards, and cooperative gameplay for up to four players. The Move peripheral is supported as a controller.

Trivia

One of the few multimedia PC titles ever produced that would run on a 286. This was achieved by using a really simplistic delta compression scheme; in addition, bandwidth/data requirements were kept low by halving the horizontal resolution when too many changes occured per frame, then halving vertical resolution in addition to that if necessary. See the screenshots ("Too much motion equals too much compression" in particular) for an example of this technique.
