Summary

Hop in the Humvee and blow stuff up!!

The Good

This game is awesome arcade action straight from Konami. This game features addicting gameplay, a 2-player mode, great music, and lots of action. Once you boot it up, it's hard to put down. I highly recommend this one.

The Bad

I didn't like the cheap deaths that occur sometimes when the screen scrolls slowly up, right, left, or down, and there just so happens to be an enemy that shoots you right in your face. Fortunately, it doesn't happen to often!! Other than that, I don't see anything else wrong with this game...it would have been nice if it lasted longer though.

The Bottom Line

This game is action-packed. You control a military Humvee and your mission is to rescue POW's and have them extracted by chopper so they can get back home safely. While you're doing that, you have to blast away hundreds of enemy soldiers, tanks, turrets, submarines, attack boats...not to mention the boss at the end of each stage. This game is awesome. Highly recommended!!
