The fact that both games are now one means that you’d be hard pushed to find a better deal. OK, so it may not be state-of-the-art in terms of PlayStation software, and indeed if you can tolerate the endless barrage of taunts from mindless 3DO owners claiming that they’ve had both games for aeons (and better no doubt!), then this package should be all you need for a fun-packed weekend of hedonistic heroism. In short, including Jumpgate pushes the score up to 89% for Shock Wave Assault..

Menschen, die so ein Spiel programmieren, haben keine Freunde. Shock Wave gehört zu den härtesten Nüssen und um es durchzuspielen, mußten wir schon einige Nächte aufwenden. Was die Mission-Disk angeht, so möchte ich jedem raten, das Teil einmal anzuspielen. Nichts gegen einen ordentlichen Schwierigkeitsgrad, doch hier hätte man in der Probephase merken müssen, daß selbst hartgesottene Alien-Buster mit Müh‘ und Not die ersten zwei Level packen. Hallo, EA und 3D0 Company, wir sind Menschen und keine sechsarmigen Wesen mit Saugnäpfen, die sich durch Gurgellaute und das Schwenken von roten Fahnen verständlich machen. Teil 1 ist ein wunderbares Stück Software, die Atmosphäre wird durch lange, aufwendig produzierte Zwischensequenzen aufgebaut, während man im eigentlichen Ballerteil über flüssiges Scrolling, spacige Angreifer und reizvolle Landschaftsgrafiken staunt. Die Langzeitmotivation stimmt ebenfalls, Ihr müßt eben etwas Geduld mitbringen.

The biggest difference between the two games is Jumpgate's difficulty. It assumes you mastered the first game, so the enemies are faster, more numerous and mostly airborne (the easy-to-bag walkers have disappeared). Except lots of crashing and replaying. But what replaying it is! This Operation's a success.
More in-the-cockpit action. Jumpgate is essentially the first Shockwave, it just has new combat areas. The control could use some fine-tuning, but awesome cinemas and intense action compensate.
That aside, I loved Shockwave: Operation Jumpgate. If you want a game you can play for weeks on end and you're itching to get hooked, go for it. It's your world. I still have a long way to go in the game and I'm enjoying every minute of it. (Every minute I'm playing and not screaming curses at the TV screen, that is.)

If you liked Shock Wave, you will love the data disk, Operation JumpGate. The only thing we could argue is the number of missions. Five is a bit too short.
