SummaryRelive the first first-person shooter in a surprisingly faithful reproduction of the original arcade game.
The GoodBattlezone for the PC was released during a time where the only PC title to have decent 3D graphics was Flight Simulator, so when I first saw it I was skeptical that it would run well. Not only did it run well, but it was a nearly perfect conversion and it ran just as fast as it did in the arcade.
You don't have to be familiar with the arcade to enjoy the game; it's a sly shooter that really ups the "nervous" factor and forces you to keep one eye on the radar at all times.
The BadThe dual "tank sticks" control mechanism was replaced by the standard 8-way joystick directional paradigm. No actual control was lost, since all possible left and right stick combinations map perfectly into an 8-way joystick, but the game feels different as a result.
