Sure, brain dead, stress-relieving shooters can be a lot of fun, but Revolution X comes up lacking. Not only does the action get old after a short while, it's not overly fun to begin with.

While the sounds boast some great digitized speech and rocking tunes, the graphics are way below par. This arcade port just didn't translate very well graphically and this hurts the game. Also, the lack of a gun makes the cursor movement awkward and slow for this type of game. It does retain a lot of secrets and playability of the arcade version, but it's sluggishness and grainy looking graphics are just too much for me to get into this game.
Sieben Level, alle vollgestopft mit Gegnern, warten darauf von Euch gesäubert zu werden. Leider macht die technische Seite dem Spielspaß einen Strich durch die Rechnung. Die Gegnersprites sind schlecht digitalisiert, die Levelgestaltung ist karg, und Abwechslung sucht man vergebens. Das monotone Geballer in den sieben unfairen Leveln läßt selbst hartgesottene Shoot-'em-Up-Freaks einnicken.
Revolution X fails to bring the arcade home. What this version does bring home is a very disappointing game.

It started off as such a good thing. A game that combined two things I've wanted to see put together for a long time: guns and Aerosmith. Except in this game you're not using the guns on Aerosmith, no, worse, you're working for Aerosmith. Taking orders from Steven Tyler doesn't seem like my idea of a good time, even if those orders free you up to mow down a couple armies worth of faceless goons. And on the SNES, it's made even worse.
