I think this game will keep you entertained for absolutely ages. I know that whenever I turn it on, I just shut off from the outside world and get sucked right into it's little world. I mean, it's just one of those games, that when you start to play, you slowly stop noticing people around you, and basically become a totally ignorant git! After all, who the hell wants distractions from friends and family when you can have as much fun as you can while playing this. I like it, because you can either follow the plot to actually get on in the game. Or if you don't care about progressing - Like me half of the time - then you can just go around shoot anything with a pulse, or without!

Action-Freunde bekommen mit Nuclear Strike 64 ein erstklassiges Game geliefert, das aufgrund seiner intelligent agierenden Gegner, der sehr guten Steuerung und des überzeugende Aufbaus der verschiedenen Missionen den Spieler auch auf längere Sicht begeistern kann.

If you are familiar with and liked the previous “Strike” games, you’ll love this one just as much. While this is a great action game, don’t assume it’s mindless -- you have to think and react quickly to situations. The game is very challenging, but not impossible and gives a feeling of accomplishment when you finally finish a mission. Be advised, though, It can also be a bit frustrating at times due to this challenge. Overall it is still a fun game. If you are looking for a challenging action/strategy game, Nuclear Strike 64 may be right up your alley which is why I give it a score of 85.

When all is said and done, Nuclear Strike 64 is a fine example of an excellent shooting game. With plenty to see and to do, you'll be spending a lot of time out in the field. The extra vehicles and the fantastic graphics and sound help bring the experience home in a pleasantly forceful manner. If you're feeling aggressive, you just found your outlet.

Nuclear Strike 64 is the sort of game that if you wanted, and had an ax to grind, you could probably nit pick to death. Sometimes the map is a little confusing with the use of light blue and dark blue and I didn't particularly like the fact that after you died, the game keeps running while your vehicle resurrects. There are probably a half a dozen other little things like that. However that is to take a small view and not the big picture. Nuclear Strike 64 is a good and challenging mission based game that continues a fine tradition in grand style. I don't think it'll win many awards or huge accolades. Its biggest selling point is that in addition to doing most things well it doesn't do anything badly. A rather solid effort.

The game looks great and is full of explosions. This N64 version has been simplified somewhat from the PC series of Strike games, but even so it has lots of action. A bit of nuclear terrorism adds a nice touch to any day.

The varied mission design and fast action of Nuclear Strike make it a worthwhile shooter, even if the game it was based on is more than two years old. Some players may find that the enemies don't aim well enough, making the game a little too easy, but it's a fun experience regardless. Just start out playing it on the hard difficulty to ensure you get your money's worth.

When it comes to creating an action game, it would be nice to play something that requires a little bit more than just holding down the fire button continuously. In Nuclear Strike 64, that's just about all you do. The background graphics look pretty good (but the actual units graphics are horrible), but the premise (players control a multitude of vehicles in an attempt to blow up anything and everything related to a Big Evil Terrorist Guy) leaves a bit to be desired. However, if all you're looking for is a game where you can fly around in a helicopter, drive a tank and manipulate 10 other vehicles in a destructive fest, well, here you go.
