And having the bullets is essential, because you will find it hard to emulate the frantic non-stop action that Operation Wolf shoves right down your throat. Your finger will never leave the trigger, your grenades will light up the screen in fiery glee often, and those opposing forces will drop in absolutely ridiculous numbers. Let’s make no mistake; Operation Wolf is a founding father of light-gun games, but it still manages to rank itself along the elite.
Visually, the game is unsurpassed for the time of its release. Backgrounds are detailed, enemies are numerous, and tanks and helicopters are frighteningly large and realistic. The music is less impressive, but the thunderous explosions, teeth-rattling gunfire, and other sound effects more than make up for it.

Figure de proue du Rail Shooter à l’ancienne, Operation Wolf est un très bon exemple de ce à quoi pouvait ressembler les titres qui impressionnaient les joueurs dans la seconde moitié des années 80. Prenant la peine de dépoussiérer légèrement un concept antédiluvien, le logiciel de Taito livre une expérience défoulante et ludique le temps de quelques courtes parties, après quoi les limites inhérentes au genre reprennent très rapidement le dessus, et le manque absolu de variété de l’action pousse à reposer définitivement le pistolet. Les nostalgiques y retourneront sans doute de temps en temps avec une petite larme émue au coin de l’œil, les autres risquent en revanche de rapidement passer à autre chose.
