In The Hunt's soundtrack isn't remarkable, but it does call to mind those glorious days when 16-bit ruled. There's just one thing that prevents In The Hunt from achieving greatness, and that's the heinous slow-down that occurs when the action heats up. It's hard to ignore in the single-player mode, and it practically ruins an otherwise terrific two-player simultaneous mode. In The Hunt is a fun game, but it seems like the hardware is struggling to keep up every step of the way.

Schweißnasse Finger, gestiegener Adrenalinspiegel, massig Überstunden - und alles nur wegen In the Hunt. Nach dem PS-Einstand durfte ich nun auch an die Saturn-Version Hand anlegen. Die Umsetzung bietet alles, was ein erstklassiges Shoot'em-Up ausmacht: tolle Grafik, viele Extrawaffen, Angriffsformationen en masse und nicht zu vergessen, einen fantastischen Zwei-Spieler-Modus. Einiges gefiel mir jedoch nicht so gut, weshalb es nicht zu einer Spitzenwertung reicht.

How pathetic must Imagineer's programmers by if they can't even do decent 2-D on the Saturn? This one has embarrassing slow down, extra loading time and a Genesis quality soundtrack, none which is present in Xing's far superior Playstation version. Still basically a good game but there are far better titles out there.

Even though the Saturn version retains the look of the original game, it experiences occasional instances of slow-down in certain situations. While that's not a huge problem, it's still distracting at times.

While it was ignored at the time because of its 2D look, there's no reason you should ignore this classic Sega Saturn game (that is also available on the original PlayStation). If you still can't get over the 2D look, then perhaps you should check out the equally awesome PlayStation 2 sequel, Sub Rebellion. Either way you go, you won't be disappointed with this forgotten franchise.

Ich persönlich habe wirklich nichts gegen eine gepflegte Ballerei im konventionellen Stil, doch bei In the Hunt kriegt man schlichtweg zu wenig geboten. Die läppischen sechs Levels der Arcade-Version hätte man um einige Stages erweitern müssen, will man im Konsolenbereich einen VK von 100DM rechtfertigen. Außerdem wirkt die U-Boot-Fahrt aufgrund der Vielzahl an Explosionen und Gegnern in höheren Stages unübersichtlich und somit unfair. Diese hohe Sprite-Lastigkeit wurde von den PS-Programmierern Xing besser gelöst, als von Sims & Co., die sich für die Saturn-Version verantwortlich zeichnen. Während sich die PlayStation-Variante durchgehend flüssig spielt, kommt der Saturn-CPU häufig ins Schwitzen. Folge: Ruckelscrolling, CPU-Bremse und somit Prozentabzug. Da kann ich nur sagen: schlampige Arbeit, zumal auch der Sound auf der PS noch eine Ecke kräftiger geraten ist
