The graphics are excellent— especially the Amstrad — and the game play clever and absorbing. By all account the film was good and the game doesn't disappoint. Go on, blow a fuse over Short Circuit

To fully appreciate the game - and distinguish it from other 3D arcade adventures - you'll have to see the excellent film. Only then will comments such as "ooohhhh input" and "disassemble" make any real sense.

The gameplay is almost identical, but monochrome graphics look crisper and add to the atmosphere.

Colourful sprites and backdrops have a realistic metallic sheen on them, and the music is as good as you can expect from the Amstrad. The game's the same, though.

The second game is of even lower quality. However, the first game is of such low quality itself that one begins to wonder if two games which are so bad are even worth the price of one! My conclusion was that the second game is dreadful and the first game a mediocre budget maze game. The trouble is Ocean aren't in the business of selling games at budget prices.
