In totaal bevat Combat 30 levels, verspreid over 3 werelden. Als je alle levels hebt doorlopen, is het nog steeds niet Game Over. Je kunt het arcade spel namelijk ook met acht vrienden en vriendinnen spelen, via een LAN of over internet. Anno 2002 is Combat niet zo baanbrekend als vroeger, maar wel een aangenaam tussendoortje voor jong en oud.

There are plenty of budget shooters out there and this one doesn't stand out from the crowd. The game could have used the old Atari classic as a template and just boosted the game's look, features, and sound. That would have been an awesome game to play (at least rom a standpoint of nostalgia) and a bunch of people probably would have played it on their coffee breaks. But as it stands, Combat has no nostalgic value and without that the game is destined for a short run on the market.

On the market for a slippery $19.99 take on Twisted Metal that’s loosely based on a game made before the Olsen twins were born? Look no farther.

Looking past comparisons with the original, Combat has the overall feel of a shareware game one might download off the Internet. The graphics are unimpressive but adequate, and there's enough action to hold your interest for a little while. But without the benefit of nostalgia or any interesting features of its own, the game quickly loses steam.

После общения с Combat у меня сложилось впечатление, что разработчиков буквально принуждали сделать это несчастное современное извращение — настолько все натянуто, безынтересно, аляповато и примитивно. Процесс познания игры, пожалуй, равноценен мучениям парней из Magic Lantern, которые они испытали при ее создании. Воистину.
