NESTop Secret (Mar, 1993)
Akcja gry nie jest monotonna, przeciwnicy często się zmieniają. Walka z dużym helikopterem i grubasem w windzie może dostarczyć bardzo wielu emocji. Jest to chyba jedna z lepszych "strzelanek". Animacja bardzo ładna, a grafika starannie przemyślana.

Preso no território inimigo, você deve fugir, libertando seus amigos, e impedir o objetivo do exército adversário, que é o de provocar um colapso econômico global.
Another war game from SNK. Nothing spectacular here, just a good solid game. Punch and kick lovers will have their hands full with a formidable enemy and challenging end-of-level Bosses. Other than Double Dragon 2, this is the best kung-fu type game this fall.

Wer P.O.W. zu seinem Lieblingsautomaten küren will, sollte einige Markstücke bereitlegen, denn es ist nicht einfach. Meistens tänzeln vier bis fünf Soldaten herum, die gleichzeitig angreifen. Zu zweit wird das Spiel übrigens einfacher, denn es erscheinen nicht wesentlich mehr Gegner am Schirm. Wer Hauruck-Action und deftige Raufereien mag, wird P.O.W. mögen - ich bin nicht sonderlich begeistert.

P.O.W. doesn't break many rules. It's a good solid beat 'em up with reasonable graphics, fairly faithfully following in the footsteps of the likes of Double Dragon and Renegade. The controls are smooth and the sound effects, in particular, are excellent, a successful kick or punch resulting in a satisfying "THWOKKKK" accompanying the elimination of your foe. Not a frontier crosser by any means but no doubt it'll go down just fine with those many fans of coin-op fisticuffs that throng the arcades around the land.

P.O.W. is basically a Double Dragon clone. Only if you're desperate to play a side-scrolling fighter and can't find any other acceptable substitutes should you consider giving this game your money.
