DescriptionReturn Fire is the spiritual successor to Fire Power and it fits in both the strategy and action genres. You can take control of one of 4 vehicles, a jeep, helicopter, tank and a missile launching vehicle (but actually called The Armoured Support Vehicle (ASV).
There are are two ways to win, the easier one would be to capture the enemy's flag by bringing it to your bunker with the frail Jeep. This is the main objective. The other way to win is to destroy your enemy, a secondary objective.

TriviaFollowing the release of the game on the 3DO and Playstation systems, a version was planned for release on the Sega Saturn. Developer Prolific ported the code over and in fact even completed the game. However at that time, a version of the Sega Saturn system named the "Hi-Saturn" and manufactured by Hitachi was released. The system wasn't always compatible with existing games and so Prolific was asked to make sure the upcoming Return Fire would be compatible with this variant of the system. While making the necessary changes for the Hi-Saturn, the Sega Saturn's future as a profitable platform came under doubt and Return Fire, already finished, was canceled.
In 2003, SEGA-Saturn.net began to do research on unreleased games and contacted Prolific about the title. They were sent a fully functional Sega Saturn CD version of the game to test.
